Mysterious Owl

   On arriving at the cafe this morning I noticed a plastic bag had been left outside. Cautiously handling it (thinking it may be a used nappy or dog poo), I discovered it contained something hard wrapped in a towel.  A quick telephone call to my wife to ask if she was expecting anything drew a blank, but she advised leaving it unopened until she arrived (after asking if there were any wires sticking out of it!)

  Turns out it's this ceramic owl ornament thing. Written on a post-it note were the the words, 'プレセント、どうぞ’ or 'Here's a present'.

  No name, or clue, as to who may have left it for us...

Creamy Celery Soup

  Autumn has arrived suddenly here in Tokyo, so it's back to soups. This week's soup is Creamy Celery.

  I always get a kick out of the size of the head of celery delivered by our vegetable supplier, Tousei.

  Makes supermarket celery look tiny!
