How do you clear snow off the terrace in winter? (Can you tell I'm Canadian and weather obsessed? HA!)

We had macarons from Jean-Paul Hévin in Paris and they were miraculous! It was a very hot day and they'd been warmed slightly before we settled under a tree in the Tuileries. We opened the little box and le parfum!</I> And the taste ... exquisite. Especially the Grot'in!

The next week we were back in London and got some from the little Ladurée shop in Harrods. Sorry but not impressed at all - they were tough and chewy. Could it be the Harrods shop isn't up to Paris standards?

I have to say, though, don't be deceived - macarons are simply too rich to enjoy beyond one or two in a sitting.

I can't believe the place is under 700sqft - it reads huge! I suppose the windows help greatly. The accessories make it retro, homey and lived-in.

And who wouldn't want to come home from a long day at work to this place - with puss napping on the bed.
