(Yes, we’re a week later than most, already officially in Lent – my theory is that they chose the date to thumb their noses at their Catholic neighbours, post-Reformation.

I did, however, have the mandatory foods: onion quiche and flour soup, yum!

In other news, I watched two more episodes of Guardian (eps 28/29), which means more liveblogs! 🙂
