Unsure as to whether today should be called shrove Tuesday or pancake day. Tried explaining to the family that its a prelude to Lent where one must sacrifice something for 40 days commencing tomorrow on Ash Wednesday.
Needless to say the sentiment was somewhat lost as the discussion rapidly turned to Nutella or Lemon.
The symbolism of the whole occasion must, for the time being at least, be put aside at least until the Children are older and can be taught more moral approaches.
But for now – its pancake time.
