Giving up for Lent

Yesterday we had our pancakes. Lovely homemade ones with the traditional lemon and sugar. We talked to daughter about why we eat pancakes and about Lent and why we give something up during Lent.

So we all decided:

Daddy's giving up bread.

(Very good idea, he has a real bread habit and it's not good for him)

Mummy's giving up chocolate.

(I know, I know, but it was either that or wine so you can see why I chose chocolate!)

Daughter said she'd give up "seconds".

However, when I picked her up from school today she declared she couldn't give up seconds because there may be crumble on Sunday.

"So what are you giving up?" I asked.

"Eating bogeys"!!

Daughter has given up pancakes (!), Hubby has given up exercise (!!), I have given up chocolate, alcohol and coffee. Guess which one of us is going to suffer!!!

If I was stronger willed I'd give up chocolate.

I have given up eating bogeys too... !!

There was a suggestion in our house to give up homework, but I thought school might not be too impressed...
