When I joined in with giving up at the start of Lent, I’m not sure that I believed that I could see it through. The idea of giving up biscuits, cake, chocolates and sweets seemed unattainable 46 days ago.
But I’ve done it!
I celebrated today, not with a blow-out, but with a single slice of birthday cake from last night’s disco. The party was for the ladies who make these cakes at www.rosboroughcakes.com and here I am tucking into a slice of their fruit cake.
I fully intend to continue to exercise some restraint in my future consumption of things that are not good for me, but I am looking forward to the occasional treat.
I’m also going to spare you the count of each passing day in my next blog posts.
