    between my office and home there are
    2 fish and chip shops, 5 pasty shops (6 if you count the one next door!) and one cake shop. - that's just on the main street.

    Just as well I don't like any of it isn't it?

    I feel quite lucky - there are no foodie shops by my work, and only a chippy and a chinese by the local shopping area!!! However, everywhere delivers!!!! :(

    I just think the number of fast food places is shocking. Recently lost Burger King here, but are getting a KFC in the near future. They are taking over I think it was a Thai food restaurant.

    Is horrid walking home, awaiting dindins only to smell multiple types of naughty foods, I usually console myself watching the muffin tops that go in and out of the stores.

    I guess I'm lucky to live in the middle of the countryside, it's 7 miles to my nearest takeaway...

    If im honest I live behind all these take aways and rarely use them - might have something to do with always seeing the rubbish they put out and also watching the pizza/kebeb shops try and swill all the disgusting orange fat out of their yards - yuck!

    I am lucky too. I live in a small village in Spain and the only take away we have is a kebab place and I hate kebabs !!!

    It must be torture living so close to all those fantastic smells. I call them smells you can taste. Well done for resisting them.

    Once I stayed with a friend who lives in Birmingham and she has everything within walking distance of her house. I am so glad I wasn't dieting then and got to try all of them......yummy......... now were is that carrot stick lol !!

    I would go mad if I lived within smelling distance of a bakery Judi!!

    Luckily there is nothing withing walking distance of me, just a little village shop which closes at tea time.

    We have pizza, Indian, Chinese and a chippy in the next town but it's a drive away. I'm pleased really!

    Before I retired, I used to commute to Paddington Station. One day (trains were delayed - again! - so I had time to look around me) I counted that there were 23 places on the station to buy food.

    OK, some of it was stuff I wouldn't usually touch, like Burger King, but a lot of it was really lovely food! I used to have to put my head down and dash for the Underground!!!
