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!

  We were lucky to be visited on Wednesday and Thursday by the members of Habibi. Despite my initial ignorance of their existence they were perfectly charming, witty and engrossing with a touch of glamour thrown in!

  They were in Tokyo for one night only to play at the UFO Club in Koenji.

  Thanks for visiting us, and for the photo!

  Good luck for future and if you're in Tokyo again please drop by.

A Festival of Tales

  Just finished reading A Festival of Tales, a collection of three short stories all featuring Ormskirk, the place that our very own Ormskirk (style) Gingerbread biscuits are inspired by.

  The three authors, Claire Dean, James Rice and Rodge Glass have written a blend of the folklore and history centered on Ormskirk, it made me a little homesick!

  The book will make a great addition to the englishpool school library.


  (A big thanks to my mum for sending me a signed copy!)
