My XYL is there, and I'm here in Belfast, but I've told her to be nice and ask them in for tea

Now now girls, no fighting in the school yard!!!
I was a dinner lady during the reform years when they go rid of the dried cabbage and introduced the real stuff!! I worked in St Thomas's on the Whiterock Rd the year before it closed and that was an experience, not for the faint hearted & I'm only talking about the staff!! When I left in '97 we were providing great choices to kids, curries, pasta dishes, salads baked spuds.

Sounds great ... did the kids enjoy eating the rabbit food and cucumber which many people do not eat ???

I notice quite a large number of kids still go to the fast food shops both at lunch time and when they
get out of school in the afternoon. Those great choices can't be all that filling.

The arrangement for us was if your Father was working you paid x amount for your dinners, if he wasn't then it was free. I actually didn't mind the dinners...just the long lines and the march from the bottom of Butler st up to the dinner hall
