I had a shocking start to the day earlier this week when I was awoken at 7am to the sight of my youngest at the side of my bed shouting what appeared to be random, unconnected words. ‘Can I help? I want to crack the eggs. I don’t want a purple one, I want a blue one!’

As the haze of sleep slowly evaporated, it dawned on me that it was Shrove Tuesday, or as every child in the country knows it, Pancake Day. Normally a day that elicits mild interest from the younger members of my family, it was all change this year and they had talked of nothing else in the run up.

My older kids had researched recipes, new methods of making different shaped pancakes and had persuaded me to buy food colouring so they could make rainbow versions, hence the colour choice preferences loudly stated by my youngest.
