    I'm giving up wearing pants. I'm sure my workmates are looking forward to it already.

    This year I'm going to take up all the things others are giving up.

    Looking forward to a bit of pants-wearing action, I must say.

    Alcohol. Not sure how that will go.

    Also doing exercise (just started and hate it already) for the duration and intending starting to learn the violin on 29th Feb having heard PM on Radio 4 asking people what they are going to do with their "extra day" this year.

    Not giving up anything. If anything I may indulge more, out of spite.

    I'll be giving up meat for 40 days. I've done it before, it's not too tough.

    I'm not religious, but I reckon the pagan reasoning behind a lot of the religious calendar is probably still valid so why the hell not?

    I think that if anything, it represents the end of the winter stores - making it a religious thing would make it easier to bear the lack of foodstuffs. Maybe.

    Although, we do have lamb in spring. Mmm, lamb.
