To cheer up a grey rainy few weeks where I've been laden down at work, then coming home to a kitchen full of ants, sick children...
I took myself to La Belle Miette!
I am somewhat of a macaron fiend...
Ummmmmm...I may or may not have popped in for a quick cupcake as well :)
How adorable is the hippo mat!!
I came home to find Mr Bok had bought me a gift, a perfume I've been lusting after for so long. Smells of fig trees in all their gloriousness, the greenness of the fig tree and its leaves, the ripening fig itself, then the warm woodiness and somehow I get a hint of grass and coconut too. So lovely to wrap yourself in on a cold day. I keep catching whiffs of this divine fragrance and then realise belatedly that it's me! How lovely!
After dinner we huddled around the dining table and each took a teeny tiny bite of each macaron until they were all gone. Master Bok, Miss Bok, Mr Bok and me. Yummmeeeeeeee! My favourite was the pink grapefruit...and also the cherry blossom and sake...ooooh I also loved the salty caramel. And the pistachio. Hrmm...they were all delightful! Not a single crumb was left for the scavenous ants.
The ant problem now...this is the 6th day I've come home to find them in the house. They are so diligent, patiently tracking their way in through the laundry, around the dining area until they get to the kitchen. Thank goodness they move in neat orderly lines else I'd never be able to get rid of them.
Any tips on keeping them OUT?
