Long-awaited resumption of alcoholic consumption

I'm nearly there! I have abstained from alcohol since Ash Wednesday. It will give you some idea of my state of mind, to know that I have just googled "When does Lent end?". The answer is apparently after at the Saturday vigil. I will heroically keep going until lunchtime tomorrow, when I am envisaging a "Live Blog" as I down my first gulps of the blessed nectar.

Already I am planning what I will break my fast with. None of your gassy stuff. It'll have to be real ale for me. The picture gives some idea of the lines along which I am thinking.


  1. Ditto. I am looking forward to a glass of cold wine as I sit in my garden. I have been asking several people about when lent ends!

  2. Well done for holding out this long!
