Welcome to Best and Worst, friends.
This is the place where you get to tell us all the good things and all the not-so-great things that happened in your week.
Let me begin this week’s post with a disclaimer: I really, really, really, really, really like chocolate.
A few months ago, I heard someone talking about a ‘family sized’ block of chocolate.
Until that day, I didn’t even know there was such thing as family sized chocolate blocks. I was thrilled. I immediately jumped onto the phone to my partner to give him the good news.
“GUESS WHAT! YOU CAN GET FAMILY SIZE BLOCKS OF CHOCOLATE NOW! I won’t have to go through a block a night!”
He laughed at me and assured me the chocolate bar (does it even really count as a block?) I’d been eating every night was in fact a family size block. Intended to feed a whole family.
So that’s what we’re dealing with here.
It’s probably not hard to guess, then, that the best part of my week was when I found out the Mamamia Team had been invited to lunch at the Guylian Cafe in the Rocks over the weekend.
I could barely control myself. I may or may not have mauled some of my colleagues when they asked if I wanted to share my dessert with them. (Apologies, guys. Chocolate and sharing don’t mix).
Now, I like to think of myself as a chocolate connoisseur. I think I eat enough chocolate to have gained top-level expert status. And I was prepared to be picky.
I do not want to understate this: My trip the Guylian cafe was the best thing that happened to me all week, and probably all month, and possibly all year. I drank a choc-banana milkshake that CHANGED MY LIFE.
Guylian, if you’re listening: how do you feel about office delivery? I’d like to place a preliminary order for four thousand choc-banana milkshakes.
Oh, and the worst part of my week? Probably realising that at some point I had to leave the chocolate cafe and return to real life.
But enough about me.
What’s been the best and worst parts of your week?
