Hasn’t this week been beautiful?
It was 16C on Tuesday, less than a fortnight since it was -16C: mental, but in a very good way 🙂
Something that wasn’t as good this week was the start of Lent.
We were talking about it at work and my colleague said he was giving up alcohol.But as he doesn’t drink at all during the week, I said that wasn’t quite in the spirit, that it should be something you’d really miss. I gave chocolate as an example for me and asked whether he’d give that up. He said no within a nanosecond and we both laughed.
Two minutes later, he said: “Ok, I’ll give up chocolate if you will.”
I called his bluff and said he was only saying that because he knew I wouldn’t… but ten minutes later, he said: “Ok, even if you’re not doing it, I am.”
That was the gauntlet well and truly thrown down and he’d outmanoeuvred me a treat 🙂
So no more of these:
Or even these:
Balls indeed 🙂
It’s good though, because I’d got to the stage of eating chocolate every single evening, whether I really wanted it or not (although to be fair, I always did) so I think it’ll be good to have some willpower and RESIST THE CALL!
I’ve been making non-chocolatey treats like this lot:
I also made some more bubble and squeak cakes the other night, using half sweet potato and half white and making mini ones, which went perfectly with a spinach and goats’ cheese omelette:
What I should have given up, of course, is these:
Now why didn’t I think of that?!
Hope you’re having a great weekend 🙂
