Son recently broke the news that he has purchased the Moomins on DVD. That will have to be the ultimate proof of the appeal of the Moomins, although personally I require the Swedish speaking Finnish version.
School Friend is a great fan of the Moomins. We invaded her house the other day (and night) and were treated to lovely tea, served in her Moomin mugs. Years ago, SF’s two daughters started the collection with two mugs, and it has grown to thirteen by now. I understand it’s so bad that SF can’t actually pass a new motif Moomin mug in a shop, without grabbing her wallet for yet another adoption. But then, you can’t possibly have too many mugs, when they look as adorable as these do.
SF herself will drink her tea from any of the mugs, as long as it’s the Little My one…
Apologies to the SF cats, who didn’t make the blog subject this time. We’ll get to you some other visit.
