Shrove Tuesday or Pancake day is part of the Christian calendar, it is celebrated in different ways around the world.
Shrove Tuesday commemorates the eve of Lent, 40 days of fasting before Easter.
Shrove Tuesday derives from the practice of Anglo-Saxon Christian's going into confession the day before Lent and being shriven (absolved of their sins).
A bell would be rung to call people to confession, this became known as 'Pancake Bell' and is still rung today.
Shrove Tuesday always falls 47 days before Easter Sunday.
Eggs, sugar, milk and butter were among food ingredients that used to be forbidden during Lent, so they were often used up to make pancakes.
Enjoy pancake day even if you are not religious.
Which toppings or fillings do you like on your pancakes?

The term "Personal Branding" was coined by Tom Peters in 1997.
He said we are all CEOs of our personal brand no matter what industry we work in or where we live.
It is important to be yourself, don't follow the crowd, let your unique qualities show. Online and offline, your personal brand exists, what impression do you give?
What message do you send with the things you do and say? How do you behave?
A good personal brand is essential to cultivating a successful life and career.

"Our days are happier when we give people a piece of our heart rather than a piece of our mind."
Kindness is so easy to
give, and doesn't have to cost anything. It can be as simple as listening, being supportive or just giving some of your time.

As Valentine's day approaches, here are some tips that will help make it a memorable day.
Plan ahead if you are in a relationship, be thoughtful about the card and gift you buy. Elaborate plans are not essential, you might want to have a discussion about how you both want to spend the day so you are in agreement.
If you are dining out, make a reservation in advance at a restaurant that will be to your date or partner's liking, not just yours.
Don't dictate your date or partner's menu choice or steer them away from the expensive part of the menu.
The bill should be settled discreetly without comment about the cost or joking about volunteering to wash dishes. Avoid an embarrassment by making sure you have sufficient funds available.
Gifts don't have to be expensive as long as it is something your partner will appreciate.
Gifts should reflect the length of time you have been together.
Dress up, make an effort with your appearance, it shows that you care.
Mind your table manners, give full attention to your partner or date. Electronic gadgets should be out of sight.
Do think about people around you on their own who may be feeling left out or sad on this day.
Valentine's day is a day to express our love and appreciation to those we love. It is not a competition about who can buy the biggest cards and most expensive gifts and treats.
May it be the start of 365 days filled with #love, kindness, simple courtesies and loving gestures.
