Waiting To Be Refilled

Despite not liking the flavour, I buy bottles of Blackcurrant soda from M&S because it is cheaper than buying empty bottles of this particular style:

The rubber-lined ceramic stopper is creates an air-tight seal that prevents dribbles and spills.

For some reason known only to my odder silent self, I think they are beautiful.

Hiro loves mugicha. Mugicha is roasted barley “tea” and though it is known mainly as a summer thirst quencher, it is enjoyed all year round in our home.

We delight in having a couple of chilled bottles waiting for us in the fridge. One brewed strong, one weaker. The cups are handcrafted Japanese pottery. Little things make us happy.
