    Well if all goes to plan I should be a couple of stones lighter by August so I won't mind as much then :sigh:

    Depends on how many cupcakes I consume on Friday :unsure:

    You've got to try the macaroons at Laduree! The caramel and the rose ones are fantastic!

    Maisie still can't do long car journeys without a bucket on her lap!

    Poor Maisie.

    macaroons aren't fattening either as they are only made from egg white and almonds :lol:

    No coconut, just almonds. So light that Lisa could be right about them being nonfattening. If I remember correctly they were about £11 or so for a box of 10 but you could have as many or as little as you wanted. Check out that site for the flavours.

    Cupcakes are the new 'thing' here - they are everywhere, but yes really we have had them for years and they were always called fairycakes, although the cupcakes now are much more lavish than the fairy cakes we were taught to make as children :yes:
