    Shrove Tuesday on 25th February.

    Day before Lent for all you God-bothering Romanist types

    So what will it be? Packet mix, made from scratch, bought ready made, thin crepes or fluffy American buttermilk ones?

    I will be doing the traditional crepe style pancake from scratch and if Grove Junior (senior) wants them I have a decent instant mix for the yank variety.

    Lemon & sugar, various flavours of syrup etc or possibly a scoop of decent vanilla ice cream.

    Thought this was tomorrow? Schools in London are all on half term this week. These contingencies are usually related, aren't they?

    Think you'll find that both of those are actually Pagan festivals that have been hijacked by the cult of Christianity and the Holy Roman empire.

    Aldo disne mind a bit of paganism.

    Jaffa Cake is a cake, McVities went to court to prove it so that they could get out of paying chocolate biscuit tax.

    I love Kendal Cake, it's mint! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, it refers to the viscous liquid that seeps out if her blurt, as it resembles pancake batter. Only in texture though, not in taste.
