How exciting - I received today a parcel from Japan! Even though a lot of products I use daily are produced far away, at places and in countries I've never been to it is very exciting to receive a parcel from an exotic place as Japan, wrapped in UK-paper :-)

Obviously there are not only nice cookie cutters produced in Germany but also in Japan! I will use them soon, I promise!


A very swiss thing is the "Milchchäschtli" engl. milk-box, a compartment used for storing and picking up small itmes under the letter box. The milk box does not have a lock and its size (15x25x35.5 cm) is defined by the "Post regulation". If your letter box does not fulfil the regulations, the post is not obligated to deliver your mails. There are a lot of rules and regulations in Switzerland...
