Hurrah!! Hurrah!!

rrrrrrrr..... it feels lovely to be home :D
As the 'living-in-a-suitcase' feelings drift away,
life settles back into its normal pace.

Coming from a family who adores anything (& everything) sweet,
I am a natural sweet tooth! :P
Trips home from overseas are hardly ever without chocs!
Chocolates are a vice! nom, nom, nom! :P

As usual, the latest trip of mine yielded another batch.
Before we had the chance of enjoying them, the smart refined palate ants in my house got to them first! =---=" I should've taken shots before we threw out the ant-covered packaging!! The chocs looked tres normal. Uninteresting miniature chocolate logs, complete with scurrying ants Not wanting to waste such costly sweets, we dusted them ants away & apprehensively bit into the chocs. :D mmmmmmmmmm.... such an absolutely yummy haul of Swiss orange tinged chocolate hazelnut thin biscuity filled chocs coated with another layer of chocolate. (that certainly was a mouthful!! :]
The ants were spot-on! & this wasn't the first time!

They had marched past the sugar, ignored the huge variety of chocolate bars, the double chocolate chipped cookies, the sugar glazed biscuits & the chocolate drops (all bought locally) to get to the NEW Swiss chocs!
They wound their way through the folds of its cardboard box & bit a hole in the plastic packaging & made it big enough for all of them to sneak in! Gah!!!

They did the same to my hato (means dove in English) Sable cookies from Japan!! (I had carried them so lovingly all the way from Kamakura) The poor bird cookies were so riddled with holes after the ants were through with them... =------= grrr... They didn't spare the m&m's my mum got from Dubai either... :D it seems like the ants share a holistic passion for international sweets!
They have such expensive tastes!!

As silly as this sounds, I am waiting to see what else they'll bore their way into! So far they've ignored the Sakura drop candies & authentic Turkish delights.. tsk tsk... so picky :D I might even post piccies of their next attack!! lols

On to more> Its about time to roll up my sleeves & get busy with Jinjerup again! I havn't been able to update since Easter but that's about to change, so get ready for more prints & patterns coming your way!

:D Lynn
