<p>Luna on Lent</p>

Luna Mummy what will you give up for LENT?!

Mummy – That’s a good question, I don’t think I’ve given up anything for lent in a VERY long time.

Philomena – How long exactly?

Mummy – I think  the last time was when I was 12 or 13.

Luna – I’m giving up strawberries. I LOVE strawberries, so I’m giving up strawberries.

Philomena – So what will YOU give up, Mummy?

Mummy – I’m not sure, what do you think I should give up?

Philomena – It has to be something you really love.

Mummy – Hmmmmm.


Philomena – Or PANCAKES– I’m giving up pancakes.

Mummy: Hmmmmmm.

Luna – You could give up COFFEE? You always drink lots and lots of coffee.

Philomena – Or WINE? That would be a good one.

Mummy – Do I have to give up something I like to eat or drink — or could it be something else? There are lots of things I love.

Philomena – Oh, I KNOW! You love writing. Why don’t you give up WRITING for 40 days?!?!

Mummy – Wow.  Let me sleep on that idea. Do we have to tell each other what we give up? Is that part of it?
