Fat Thursday and some surprise wellies!!

Today is Fat Thursday, the last thursday before Lent begins, and traditionally a time of feasting in Poland and Germany. It is a day dedicated to feasting, with family and friends coming together to feast on sweets and cakes and other goodies in large quantities, before they are forbidden for Lent. This feast day also takes place in Spain and Italy. However, in Greece, it is known as Barbecue Thursday, a day when massive quantities of barbecued meat are eaten by all.

I personally think a combination of the two is the ideal. I will consume large quantities of barbecued meat, followed by shovel-loads of cakes and chocolate. Mmmmm. Sounds like a normal Thursday to be honest!! ;)

You all want chocolate cake and meat now, don't you? ;) Clear arteries - who needs 'em?!

In other news, look what arrived in the post today...

Look at them, in all their Laura Ashley loveliness!!

The Moomin took an instant shine to them...

And tried to claim them for her own. Ummmm, I don't think so, Moomin - a bit big for you at the moment. They'll have to stay with Mummy for now!! Mwahaahaahaaa!!

Thanks, Mum, for the lovely surprise!! They are absolutely beautiful!! Love you loads!! :D

Going out now to look for a puddle to jump in.....

Oh I didn't know LA did wellies... must have a look as I haven't got any :)

Fat Thursday sounds good to me. I just ate a Domino pizza so I'm obviously unconsciously aware of the significance ;)
