Ugh, I am so so rubbish at updating lately!
It was Louise and Nathans wedding on Saturday, so I’ve been busy sewing lots of bunting (sewing 14 metres of bias tape in one sitting – not fun!) and having SERIOUS debates in the middle of places like Hobbycraft and the party shop in the Galleries about what shade of blue should the balloons be, and what sort of ribbons to have on the poles so you notice them instead of walking into them (side note: the poles were actually amazing for swinging around. I was practicing at 10am on the morning of the wedding.)
There were some other lame ass excuses I was going to use, but, um, I forgot.
Today is Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day if you are not that religious. I managed to have two quite mis-shapen pancakes, which were so good with lemon and sugar. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent, and I’ve just decided to give up chocolate for Lent. Am I stupid and crazy and going to break this promise in the first week? Hopefully not.
I bought a medium sized bar of hazelnut Milka at lunch, and just made myself eat half of it, because I’m not going to have any chocolate for 40 days. Now I feel a little sick. Ew.

Actually, you’re not going to have chocolate for four days, and then the six after that.
Sundays don’t count.
6 weeks (42) + (Ash Wednesday to First Sunday In Lent ) = 46 days.
