Oronoco

// November 16th, 2004 // Life

Found in my grandmother’s stuff, a drawing by me aged 7. There is writing underneath the picture which reads:

“I think I’ll have a 40 winks.” That’s Oronoco. He is the lasyest and fattest womble of the lot! his best friends are (Bungo, Wellington & Tomsk) his best food is (nettle soup & dandeloin pie) by Emily to my dearest grandma

I wish the Wombles would come out on DVD!

    Oh, I loved the Wombles, I even had an Orinoco Womble nightlight (granted, I bought it when I was around 25)
