I recently posted a photograph of one of my grandsons in blissful contemplation of a pain au chocolat. That was in response to a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. Now, as I have twin grandsons, Hugh’s latest weekly challenge – Sweet – provides a perfect opportunity to redress the balance and post a photograph of my other grandson in equally blissful contemplation, this time of an ice-cream. Chocolate and pistachio: what’s not to like?
