In which I give in to temptation

Friday was relatively exhausting, but certainly not the worst day I've ever had. After I got home with the kids I sat and read my Handwoven magazine while the kids attempted to tidy the playroom. When DH got home he not only prepared dinner for the kids, but also made a cake for us to take to a friend's house for an Oktoberfest celebration on Saturday. So I'm not at all sure why I was feeling so stressed that I felt I needed to go downstairs to the basement and retrieve the 10 pound (yes, that's TEN pound) bar of Ghirardelli chocolate that I have been successfully ignoring for the last four or five years since I received it as a Christmas present. (Ironically, the magazine subscription was from the same relatives who bought me the chocolate!)

Fortunately, it is a solid block of chocolate and it's extremely difficult to break pieces off it! (You know me and chocolate!)

Yes, that's a 12 inch ruler on the chocolate bar!

Yannow, I've got an axe around here somewhere.

I found an image of a similar bar on the web - you got a "chocolate chisel" so that you could break it up!

Wow - that's one amazing bar of chocolate!

It looks like there's been a little bit at the corner broken off, but given the scale of it, that's probably quite a big chunk.

How on earth could you ignore it for four or five years? I would have eaten it all up before the Christmas festivities were over!!!!

A.A. Get the bloody thing eaten and have done with it, woman! That is what it's for and it will never be happy until it is nestling inside you, albeit a bit at a time.

That would ahve been demolished in my family. A little chunk here and little chunk there! No wonder I can't get rid of my muffin top! LOL

God we get those at Xmas from husband's clients. I hate the bloody things and just let the kids have at it so that I can't devour it.
