Good Friday

Today is Good Friday what does that mean to everyone do you eat meat of Good Friday or just fish, me I don't eat fish but I don't eat meat either since it is the way I was raised. Have I ever had meat on Good Friday? Yes I have in 1984 the year after I met Tim we where in Sydney to see his family and we went out for tea and we had pizza, back then Tim wasn't as religiosit in fact he didn't think anything about eating meat as to him it was just another day. Now days he would never eat meat on Good Friday.

We had all the girls over but Jessica was complaining she was hungry so we ended up starting lunch early and I dished up Jessica and Leo's lunch but Tim decided to have his lunch at the same time so when Kathy and Tasha arrived at just after midday they were in a mood. I didn't blame them I couldn't see why Tim couldn't have waited for them to get here.

Now all the girls have left and I am planning on a quiet afternoon, Tim said he was going to do the back yard after they left but no he decided to watch a movie in his room instead...............


  1. Happy Easter to you and your family.
    These days I think you eat what you want to eat on Good Friday...though I must admit I eat Fish.

  2. Traditionally, fish was always eaten on Good Friday, wasn't it, but I honestly don't think that many people keep to that so much now. I agree, Tim could have waited until the others arrived for his lunch!! We've read stories about your yard before, so I'm sorry that Tim didn't get round to doing some work on it!

  3. We were invited to a friends house and we had whiting and salad it was delicious.

  4. i didnt even realize it was good friday, and i just had pizza with bacon/pepperoni ! lol

  5. We'll eat something meatless because Doug's Catholic (sort of). Maybe eggs? Probably not fish.

  6. Well, since my boys won't be here, I don't have to worry about eating meat - they are my "Catholic" raised children. I think we'll just do left overs tonight.

    Happy Easter Jo-Anne!

  7. I do eat meat, but growing up I didn't. I thought it was a Catholic's all so confusing...I just know I love Jesus! Happy Easter Jo-Anne!

  8. I have to say that I have let go of this tradition to my own Mom's dismay.
    Blessings, Joanne

  9. This is not a tradition I was raised in or practice, but if it has religious significance for you to do so, then it's a good thing to do. We all show reverence and respect in our own ways. Have a beautiful Easter weekend, Jo-Anne!
