Not to you of course, but to these friends of mine:
Those of you who read my blog around this time last year will remember that I made the same “sacrifice” for Lent then.
Today was pancake day in the UK, quite similar to “Feittirsdag” in Norway.
It marks the beginning of Lent, (a Christian tradition) or Faste as we say back home, which means for the next 40 days there will be no sweets for me. If you’ve seen the movie 40 days and 40 nights with Josh Hartnett (yum) you should understand the concept quite well.. You can give up anything, but it has to be something you think you might struggle a little bit with, so it won’t be too easy
I’m not really that sadface about it, I mean even if last year failed it doesn’t mean I cannot do it this year.
the only reason last year failed was the fact that my very good friend Nina wanted to give me loads of Norwegian chocolate for my birthday, which was awfully kind but threw Lent right out the window.
Wish me luck!
I’m motivated I am ready and I am very full of pancakes!
and of course Renate is joining me this year as well
