I don't give things up for Lent. It's not something that's ever really appealed to me. But somehow, this time round, I've been arm twisted into doing something - so I've given up sweets and chocolate.
I really thought I didn't eat sweets. Until just two days into it I found myself about to buy a pack of walnut whips at the M&S checkout. Well, they were a bargain. And then I realized just how easy it is to slip these things under our mental radar... so maybe it was a good idea after all.
