LTL:- Love Lunch Deli

So after giving up my job I appear to have headed into the marvellous territory that is - being a lady who lunches! Don't get me wrong I'm not out every day having afternoon tea in Jesmond Dene or a steak in Marco Pierre White, but, I do often find myself eating out somewhere in ...
