I only take 30 mins so don't really have time to do anything. Usually I'll sit in the staff room by myself and read a book, paper, mag or play on my phone.
Now and again I'll pop out to Asda.

Sit at my desk and go on the internet usually.
I sometimes go out, I am only meant to have 30 mins, but I take none most days and go out for an hour some days instead

I used to go out for a wander round the shops for an hour everyday, then eat my lunch at my desk afterwards. Now I go up to the dining room, have lunch served, and come back down to my desk. I try to make a point of going out everyday but noone else seems to and I feel like they are watching me!

Aw Belle I vote you go anyway!
I used to regularly eat out with colleagues, Friday's especially we'd go to the local Bistro or Pizza express/Prezzo - we never just took the hour (but all worked so hard no one dared ever say a thing). Otherwise i'd internet shop, shop in town (being only a minute away was dangerous) or go and pick up lunch and bring it back to the staff room. In my previous job, we had a restaurant, and I hated having to spend a full hour round the table making small talk with colleagues - we were in the middle of nowhere so it was eat there, or starve!

Shop, online shop, eat Millie's cookies! Pub as well in my first job towards the end as I hated being there so much I needed a drink or two to get me through the afternoon!

Normally I just work through and eat at my desk.
Sometimes I go for a walk and stop at sainsburys to pick up a few bits.

Lunch break? What's that?
I run down to the canteen to buy a sandwich before the breaktime rush and try to hold out till 12 before I eat it (one handed while typing emails usually). Can't wait for the summer hols when it's quieter - might treat myself to the odd trip out to Asda then (woo!)

I spend time with the rest of the faculty. Have my packed lunch, sometimes someone's brought in cakes or what not. We get on really well& tend to have a laugh. I get 45 mins, but in reality by the time I've sorted stuff from the morning& organised stuff for the afternoon I tend to have 30 mins.

I always try to get out for a walk. I work in town so usually walk to the supermarket and walk around the shops. Sometimes I drive to the gym and go for a swim. I always try to get out of the office,
