Well yesterday’s post was a bit heavy, so here’s some nicer things. Including cake!
WordPress likes to upload things in a random order so here you go. It’s a lucky dip of recent photos!
My colleague who left obviously deserved a cake (fair swap for better desk, I figure). Problem was, I had to decorate it the night I got back slightly tipsy after her leaving do. At least it stopped me from staying out too late! The outside bit is white chocolate and then inside was chocolate truffle cake, white chocolate icing and lots of chocolate drops on top. Pretty much the same as the Easter birthday cake only with white chocolate wrapping and a few less eggs! And you probably can’t tell but it’s much smaller!
We took friends out for breakfast so went to our usual breakfast place and sat in the sun. It was great. It’s sort of fun to see London through visitors’ eyes and show them the hidden gems (like our favourite breakfast place).
It was a great week for hot chocolate! Weirdly I got two free hot chocolates at work. I must have looked in need of them. (I love the guys in our cafeteria. They are so nice. They always make it extra chocolatey for me and laugh about how I want a “choccy choc”.) Also Starbucks (my favourite) was running a promotion for card holders which was any size hot chocolate and a brownie for £3.50, so of course I had to go for the Venti with whipped cream. (Can’t think why I’m getting fat.)
My T really is the best human in the world. He knows I love this place in Lille, France because we go there on the Eurostar and always insist on visiting. It’s called Aux Merveilleux de Fred and it’s amazing. You can see them making “merveilleux” (marvels) in the window of the shop and there’s always a massive queue outside. Merveilleux are made out of meringue, whipped cream and covered in chocolate flakes and taste amazing. Anyway he found out they’ve opened a place in Kensington! Omg. So he took me there at the weekend on the way to the Ideal Home Show and we had Merveilleux. They really are happiness in edible form. And T is the happy maker!
