Gâteau de Chocolat

Today it rained. Today it rained a lot. After festering in the apartment for most of the day we decided to visit the climbing wall in Les Houches.

It was very busy – only the foolish would have attempted climbing outdoors today – and there seemed to be a lot of muscles on display, from both men and women. I felt quite inferior for a while, but then felt a little smug as at least I didn’t look as daft as the bear chested beeny clad youths!!

There was plenty to have a go at and things quietened down towards the evening, but by then my arms were knackered.

In fact they were so knackered I couldn’t possibly lift a saucepan, so we simply had to eat out…. which of course included desert – gâteau de chocolat.

  1. The wall at Les Houches looks good……… did Pete have his top off 😯 😯 ?

    I notice 2 spoons in the pic with the chocolate gateau….. surely you didn’t share one 😀

  2. Pete didn’t take his top off – nor did I!!

    Indeed, Pete ordered the cake, but I managed to help him out just a little – tho’ I really was quite caked out by then! 😐 = very round fat face with no cheek bones showing at all!!!
