Pancake Tuesday? Surely Not....

I cannot believe the speed with which Lent has approached this year.

I've still got Christmas decorations waiting to go up in the loft.

It used to be months from Christmas to Lent - not days like it is now.

Perhaps my advancing years have something to do with it.

Anyway, having prepared a very nice tea, followed by a pudding with custard, my kitchen has now turned into this:







...and looks like remaining so until the batter runs out.


And anyone who has got the time to do this:







........should come and spend a week in this house.

That would sort their prioroities out.

Please don't try to contact me. I shall be on a mission wandering round the house looking for any spare chocolate to eat before midnight.

I can assure you that the older you get the quicker the time goes. Very soon, it won't be worth getting up as it will be time for bed almost immediately! LOL

Hope the pancakes went well! I completely forgot about them. Well just having the two of us in the house, it doesn't really matter!

Yes, I'm with you on the chocolate eating front. I really enjoyed myself yesterday 'having' to eat practically a whole bar of chocolate in one go before Lent!

You know, I have detected a strong chocolate theme running through the blogosphere in the last day or two. I have been known to prowl the house looking for chocolate too - sometimes I find it in my husband's flight bag - he he he.

p.s. We're having our pancakes tomorrow. A few days late but hey, a flexible family is a happy family :-)
