Reading time: < 1 minute...Here we go again! It’s another year and therefore another of my ‘Lent Challenges’. For 2017, it’s 46 items that I’m trying to avoid (from March 1st until Thursday, April 13th). I’m told that I can take the Sundays in between off – but where’s the fun in that!? 🙂 I try and grow my list each year by a few items to make it a bit more tricky next time round – when I started in 2010, it was just 13 items and now I’m up to 46! I guess it’s more a test of my will-power – and a way of losing a few pounds – rather than any religious conviction (although I always think a period of denial is good for the soul).
