Ash Wednesday is upon us and it’s officially time for Lent to begin.
Running until Easter Sunday on March 27th, six weeks is a long time and we still haven’t landed on something to give up.
However, we’ve definitely ruled out all of these…
Getting rid of Whatsapp would leave us feeling like we were abandoned alone in the middle of Phoenix Park during Storm Henry. This isn’t a luxury… it’s an essential.
Whether it’s beating the boring 3pm slump at work or cheering our spirits on a Sunday evening, you just can’t beat that little adrenaline rush that only comes with seeing the ‘Order Complete’ message on your screen. Treat yo’ self – that’s our motto.
It’s not that we don’t want to give up our morning coffee, it just wouldn’t be the wisest move as we would no doubt lose our jobs due to lack of productivity and passive-aggressive attitude.
How else will we know where that girl we kinda knew in secondary school is going for her summer holidays?
We know they’re shallow and we shouldn’t admit to taking so many but what’s the point in spending ages on hair and make-up if you can’t share it with the world?
You expect us to say nothing after hearing that Michelle up the road fancies the new fella who moved into No.8? Never gonna happen.
Yes, getting our weekly fix of Corrie, Home And Away and Eastenders takes up hours that we could be using to clean the house, spend quality time with our nearest and dearest and go to the gym but it also gives us a handy topic to discuss with our work colleagues.
Also, two words: Braxton brothers.
Sweets. Maybe we’ll stick to sweets this year…
