Remember You’re A Womble

In an attempt at de-cluttering recently, I gladly stumbled upon these loyal characters from my childhood. As I reached inside the box, a huge sense of familiarity rushed over me. When I dug a little deeper I felt a thick red woolen scarf, which could only have ever belonged to Orinoco of course.



Great Uncle Bulgaria was always the one I took the most care of, as he was so much older than the others, and far wiser and mature, everybody would look to him for advice, for he had all the knowledge.

I always dreamed of having hair just like Alderney’s, and a striped tee to match. She was very much my favourite, I guess I wanted to be just like her.

I think The Wombles where way ahead of their time, what with their kind-hearted ways and recycling ethos. If only we lived amongst such lovely creatures today!

I fully hold The Wombles responsible for influencing my bargain hunting and thrift- like ways. Even though ironically it defeats the object of de-cluttering, I just can’t find it in my heart to part with these guys.

  9. I was never a fan of The Wombles but they are funny looking! I wish I had boxes full of items from my childhood to dip into but unfortunately I don't have anything from that time in my life, after lots of moving around and my mum de-cluttering there isn't much left! I love seeing things that I remember from when I was little though :) xxx
