I don't know how many times in the past that I've written about it, but there have been a number of Ash Wednesday posts before today where I've noted things that I plan to give up in the period before Easter.
The joke 'I'm going to give up giving things up for Lent' has been thrown out far too many times by yours truly, but I still love using it.
I did the no meat thing a few times. I stuck to it, but it was a pain.
It might end up having to be the no crisps abstinence that I used to do - AND FAIL! - as a child.
Or.. I'll just leave giving things up for another day. Hey, I know what I'll do..
I'm going to give up giving things up for Lent.
Still a goodie!
By the way, there's a great Google Doodle today..
I'm sure you'll know what it is. It's a Welsh lovespoon to coincide with it being St. David's Day.
I know a person who makes real lovespoons in his spare time and he does a great job. I only found out a few months ago. He had his collection on display and I commented on them not realising he created them himself. I was actually surprised when it dawned on me they were his work. I assumed they were made by his wife, daughter or another family member.
