So Tomorrow Is Ash Wednesday...

Firstly, Happy Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day/Fat Tuesday - whatever you wish to call it!

Now onto tomorrow.. I always get criticised because I'm (supposed to be) a Hindu and I still celebrate all the festivals that my Christian/Catholic friends do, but I assimilate into my environment. How can you expect a child aged 4-11 to not want to celebrate or join in with what their peers regard as normal? You can't, hence why I still do it, it's a part of me now!

Anyways, that aside, I love to see if I can last the whole 40 days, I really admire those that do! So this year, I'm going to give up... Fizzy drinks, crisps (chips to the Americans) and bread for breakfast (except on weekends - bread is the only thing that I can eat at 8am and will last me until 2pm when I'm at work).

And in honour of the new style Lent, I'm going to take up... Zumba more regularly (at least 3 times a week!), being more organised, making sure I'm on time for events again and being more productive!

How about you all? What are you giving or taking up?
