Giving up, taking up ……….staying the same

Life, Love, Family

I’m taking advantage of lent this year. As a family of non belivers and non practising Catholics we usually scoff at the notion of giving things up! What’s the point is mumbled accompanied by much eye rolling and sniggering when giving something up for lent is mentioned.

Well this year I’m using Lent to clean up the language that has crept into everyday use Chez moi. The odd swear word uttered in frustration or desperation has become common place and I don’t like it.

I’m not sure your mammy is supposed to tell you what your giving up for lent. It’s probably not very democratic or autonomous. But frankly, I don’t give a ………Fig!!! Swear words are banished from this house for Lent and I’m hoping once they take a hike they won’t come back.

I'm living on the Leitrim border with my lovely husband and two terrific kids. It's the little piece of heaven that I dreamed of growing up. I work in Adult Education by day and during my free time I read, write, knit, plant and bake not always in that order. I blog about life, love, family and everything in between. Pull up a chair and have a browse while you're here. All the best, Karen
