why '40 winks' ?

as usual, at xodus our conversations between games of table tennis and cups of tea, we cover a wide range of topics. last thursday 9/11, margaret thatcher, religious studies, crisps, supermarkets were just some of the topics discussed.

but one comment left us with an unanswered question; why do we say 'we'll have 40 winks' when we talk about sleep?

now we could answer this by looking online for an answer, but we like to find things out by talking to people. i know asking the question on this site is kind of like looking online, but if someones knows the answer and emails us of posts a comment, then it's like having a conversation. isn't it?

so if you know origin of the term '40 winks' when we talk about sleep, please let us know.

pancakes at xodus

thursday night was pancake night for xodus. once slimming world had finished downstairs (we didn't feel it was fair to cook pancakes whilst slimming world were in the next room, the smells would've been too tempting!) we took over the kitchen and had a pancake masterclass from ann.

each young person was given 50p to buy a pancake topping from mills. oli, oli and karl cut their money together and bought a tub of chocolate spread, a creative use of their money and their was plenty for everyone.
