Not only are there the spiritual preparations for Lent with the days of Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday preparations but also we have Valentines Day coming after Ash Wednesday.
Of course we start of the week withe the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
So I have pulled out my favourite planning books, pulled down my big folder for February with all my printed out ideas ( pre blogging days) and am looking on line for ideas.
I do want to do all the traditions we normally do but am looking at a few ideas that are new and inspiring.
So we will look at our own pages to see what we have done before that we can use this year and a reminder to help me as well for planning :)
