Fat Thursday

Published by at 2:06 pm under Blog

Fat Thursday is a traditional Polish and German feast marking the last Thursday before Lent. We celebrate it in our office by indulging in doughnuts. Last year, we had a variety of shop bought and dodgy McDonalds’ doughnuts.

This year, it’s Marks and Spencers all the way.

It can get messy.

And ultimately, it doesn’t last very long.

    This is my fourth time to try post a comment on your post. Post one written up and error came up when I hit submit comment. Mildly irked.
    Had to write it out again, and Error came up. Irritated.
    Wrote it up a third time (yes yes I really should have copied it the first time I wrote it out) and Error came up. Really p*ssed off for a second then had to laugh.
    Fourth time lucky – here goes! 🙂

    @Chris Would pancakes be better?

    @R On the bright side – what a great comment. 😀

    Ew too early – nauseating!

    We’ll never know now Dar, gone forever!

    Incidentally I am STILL off chocolate since Jan 1st (take that ye Lenten moaners – feeble 40 odd days!) and finding it reeeeealy difficult.

    To the point where I was in Spar after swimming last night and took a picture on my cameraphone. Of chocolate doughnuts. And kept the picture. Keeps the cravings at bay.

    Yes I am a FREAK!

    @r – I hear that vanilla is good for staving off chocolate cravings. get some Body Shop vanilla spray and keep it in your bag.

    How does having a photo of yummy food stave off cravings?

    Nice one Lottie thanks for the tip!!! I have no idea why the picture works but it does. I can appreciate just how yummy and good it looks but know that it’s really bad for me so I put the phone away and forget about choc for a while.

    @Daisy Yep – there’ll be so many pancakes here on Tuesday. 😀

    @B’dum If you’re buyin’, I’m sellin’.

    @Claire Eugh!

    @r Fair play to you. I wouldn’t last two days, never mind two months.
