*Please choose the most appropriate description.
In my efforts to move the description from ‘wheely-bin’ to ‘temple’, I am, again this year, taking Lent** very seriously. In 2010 I managed to resist most of the food-stuffs I love, without too much trouble – I’m not sure where the strength came from to do it!, but I felt quite smug at the end of it all!!!!
This year, sees a slightly larger challenge – I’ve increased the number of items on the banned-list to 16 (it was 13 last year), AND I intend to try and stick to it right up until the Wedding in December (with maybe just ONE alcoholic drink and an occasional deviation at weekends!).
So, when I see you, don’t temp me the following:
Beer, Biscuits, Cake, Cheese, Chinese, Chips, Chocolate, Cider, Coke (the fizzy kind!), Crisps, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, Curry, Custard, Guinness, Ice-cream and Pastry. Ohh, and no sugar in my coffee thanks!
Well, that’s it, it’s on the Blog, so I’ll have to stick to it!
What have I said!!!!
** As I discovered last year, there’s quite a bit of debate about when Lent finishes. I’m working on the following:
“Lent in 2011 will start on Wednesday, the 9th of March and will continue for 46 days until Saturday, the 23rd of April (Easter Sunday)…”
Blogging since 2004, about the significant people, places, sights and sounds of my world. Now dabbling with retirement! 👍😁
