I'm a big fan of the blog A Novice Novelist and Jayne's post on The Moomins is a lovely read. The Moomins are so touching, they are possibly more so now that I'm older, not because I'm nostalgic for my childhood as is the case with some books and characters I look back on but because I think I get the Moomins more now.
I've been a bit obsessed with the Moomin china they sell at Skandium and Cloudberry living for quite a long time.
I always think I shouldn't buy china with characters on it now that I'm a grown up but today I've realised that's nonsense. The Moomins don't have an age limit. So I'm ordering the limited edition Christmas mug above as my very first Christmas present purchase of the year- to myself!
