Lent 2016

As today is Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) and tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, I thought it would be nice to make a list about what I’m giving up for Lent. Being raised Catholic, I was always encouraged to give up something I would miss… (When I was 8 I asked if I could give up Church- my Nonno was not happy), the usual thing I gave up was Chocolate (because after Church my brother and I would get tons of chocolate- so if we gave it up for Lent, we could go crazy at Easter). 

BUT- 

This year I’ve gone for something a bit more drastic. This year (2016) for Lent, I am giving up: 

  • Sweet items- chocolate, cakes, candy, etc 
  • Dairy- I’m pretty sure I’m lactose intolerant as I seem to get very ill when I consume dairy, so hopefully this will be easy. 
  • Fizzy Drinks- I drink a lot of energy drinks (and coffee) so I really need to cut down. 
  • Cigarettes- I’m a smoker, I really should give up and hopefully Lent will make it easier. 

So, what are you giving up for Lent? Let me know!

The unique formulas are infused with a special…

Lining up with Manchester United before a Champions League match against Bayern Munich. Playing before a packed house on Wimbledon’s Centre Court. Walking out to bat for England in an Ashes Test. Milking the applause of the petrol-headed multitudes on a grand prix winners’ podium at Silverstone. Kids everywhere harbour such dreams but only a tiny minority ever realise them.
