Having resisted the peer pressure of having a “dry January” that so many others took part in, I decided to make it just that *tiny* bit harder for myself by giving up alcohol for Lent. Now, as all you good Christian folk know that is 40 days (not including Sundays for reasons which I have forgotten) and runs from Ash Wednesday until Easter Saturday. Which is actually 46 days (I think). So almost half as long again. I am a glutton for punishment. However, I am informed it will do me good. In what way, I have no idea, but apparently it will. Wish me luck with this one!
