1 pack of fresh English Spinach leaves, steamed and drained
400g of sliced butternut squash
1/2 bag of frozen mixed peppers
200g of sliced fresh mushrooms
1 large brown onion, sliced
1/2 tin of thick condensed mushroom soup
A dash of nutmeg
2 tsp of Parmesan cheese
2 sheets of rolled puff pastry
2. Add the mushroom soup and stir and allow to simmer for another 15 minutes. Remove from pan.
3. In an oven proof dish, lay out the first sheet of puff pastry at the bottom of dish. Now we start layering. First spread out the cooked spinach leaves, then the roasted butternut squash on top. Then pour out the contents of the pot on top of all that and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and nutmeg.
4. Cover the contents of the oven proof dish with the second layer of puff pastry and seal the edges so it looks like a pie. Make several slits and place in the oven to cook.
1. Make it a chocolate day (We're loving white Maltesers): we're giving you the best excuse ever to go out and buy bagloads of the stuff. From the first bite we could nearly swear the birds were chirping again and the sky was slightly less dull.
2. Go bright: Stand out from the dark dreary setting by donning yourself with bright colors from head to toe. Not only will that cute guy finally notice you but it should also make you feel like it's still summer even though the universe seems to disagree. A great day for red lipstick. Trust us, it works!
3. Book a manicure and pedicure: It's indoors and it will make you feel loved. Besides, they say the sun's coming out tomorrow so you'll be prepared whether for snuggling up (barefoot best) with someone if it doesn't or for donning your work sandals to work tomorrow if the sun does decide to shine. It's a win win situation.
4. Watch Big Brother: by the time you're done with an hour's watching (if you last that long), it should make your life and self esteem a hundred fold better.
5. Watch a movie: We're loving Atonement. It's depressing, it's romantic, it's the best way to end an already miserable day anyway. You can always start again tomorrow.
6. Wear a sunhat all day whether indoors or outdoors. We know it's raining but it's the summer dammit.
7. Have two (or three) glasses of wine. It's raining, the toes and manicures and pedicures have gone unnoticed, the hair's gone flat and frizzy. Enough said.

Diva Entertainments & Honey Kalaria present UK Bollywood Dance Championships 2008, allowing Bollywood dancers from the UK to compete for the prestigious overall title.
All dance styles represented in Bollywood will be welcome in the competition, including Belly dance and Bhangra to Indian Classical Hip Hop.
The show will not only leave the audience entertained with breath taking dances, superb choreography, vibrant costumes and energetic performers, but will also display the beauty of Eastern art and culture represented by the fashionable and trendy world of Bollywood.
Honey's Dance Academy students will provide additional entertainment and stage a fashion show displaying their new HDA Bollyfitness range of clothing.
This exhibition rekindles the historic debate as to whether photographers can be considered image makers rather than purely documenters. The exhibition further questions how much information we need to read an image, whether we need to be able to read an image at all, what level of accompanying text is required to make such images comprehensible.
These photographers use the camera to create innovative, poetic images rather than simply to record: photographing scenes where there is no immediately obvious subject matter (as with Gerd Hasler's waterscapes, in which water is reduced to monochrome images; Mike Whelan's series of interiors abstracted to light and form; and Mark Bellingham's photographs taken from moving trains, allowing for chance compositions), photographing what is not quite there (Nicola Probert's photograph of her parents' half-hearted redecorating attempts), or photographing the outright invisible (Isidro Ramirez's documentation of the scenes of his dreams and longings).
Equally, there are more literal photographs of nothingness: Hamish Pringle, in his first photographic project, photographs a sealed window in St Tropez; Kelly Hill photographs her daughter in a hazy light in an attempt to suggest the fragility of childhood.
Hinterspace by Steve Gross, commissioned to accompany Nearly Nothing:
In the blurring of the edges
The whisper is heard
With more urgency than
The shout can draw attention
This is all that this is all about
Listen particularly for
The sweetness of the singer when lingering
For a whisper delivered as a kiss
In the issue of art we are all missionaries
Waiting for the congregation to enable us to sing our song
Whilst longing to be heard
All we have is
The urgency of silence
As we combine our wishing to
Bring the kissing on.
How delightfully insightful to be able to
See through to get a new glimpse
Of the dreamstate contingency which
Eclipses us to simplify love.
