Sneezes and Sniffles

Momu 1

Hi – ATISHOO!  Sorry about that, but I’ve been ever so snuffly and sniffly today.  I think there must be quite a lot of pollen around at the moment.  It’s making my nose all tickly.  Luckily my nose is already red, so all this sneezing is not an issue (tee hee – that rhymes with atishoo!  Ahem – sorry!).  The same cannot be said for the sneezy girl – her nose looks a bit red and sore.  Lots of people are sneezing today – it is quite odd because it is not even that sunny outside.  If it was then perhaps it would be worth it.

We are really looking forward to our seaside trip now – hopefully the salty sea air will have less pollen and therefore less sneezes in it.  We can only hope.  Even if it doesn’t, the seaside sounds much more fun than the city for the weekend.

Yippee!

 

More soon.

Ducks

Momu

Hi again, only me!

Whenever we can, me and the other lads like to walk by the river (I say walk, I obviously mean ride in a bag or similar mode of transportation – our tiny legs would take forever to get us anywhere).  This morning me and Mike saw some very new ducklings splashing around in the river and this made us and the girl very happy – it almost made up for the fact that it was a work day and the sun was out but we had to be in.

We like ducks because when they are small they are ever so cute and when they grow up they can be all sorts of colours.  So far I have counted about 19 new ducklings on my travels, although it could be more – I am not good with mundane things like maths.

The girl drew some ducks the other day.  I like them, although the girl thinks she needs to do some serious practising when it comes to doodling.  I think anything that comes from using pencils is great.  I can’t hold one because I am so small, but I do like to watch other people use them – it makes me smile.

The Seaside

Momu 1

 

Hi, it’s me again.  I hope you are all well.

There have been rumours floating around here at Momu HQ (well, alright, the girl’s flat) that a trip to the seaside may be happening at the weekend.  This has made us very happy because we haven’t had an adventure for a very long time indeed.

Apparently the girl grew up by the seaside (but she wasn’t born there – this seems to be a very important fact to remember, although none of the lads can really work out why) and we have heard that she is going to be moving back there soon.  Now obviously we lads want to make sure that seaside life will suit us, so we are very excited about the upcoming trip.

Some of us think the life of a fisher bear or similar is a romantic one, and Monkey in particular is relishing the idea of wearing a smock and a waterproof hat.  We have spied a magazine all about the seaside, and it says “life is better by the sea” – we mean to find out if there is any truth in this statement.  We will report back once the trip has taken place and the lads and me have mulled things over for a while.

We think it will most probably be an amazing place to live, but only on the proviso that we don’t have to go swimming very often (far too wet) or spend too much time in the sand (it gets everywhere I’m told).

Momu Meets…

Momu 1

Hi again everyone!  It is another rainy day here – still can’t believe it is June, the sun is definitely meant to be out more than this I am sure of it.

Anyway, I thought it was time you met another of the lads, so without further ado – here is Jumbah.

Jumbah

Momu: What’s your name?

Jumbah: My name is Jumbah.  Don’t even ask, I’m not sure I even know.

M: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?  Were you always a lad or have you been rescued?

J: I think I am an alien – I know for sure that I don’t seem to look like any of the other lads.  I was given to the girl by her brother a while ago.  I think it may have been part of a running joke that stemmed from the fact I was in a very weird kid’s tv show they thought was funny.  I was just being me and thought this was a bit rude, but it turns out they were not being mean and ever since I’ve been looked after really well and treated just the same as the other lads.

M: How old are you?

J: I really can’t remember.  I’m not really sure how many alien years make up a lad year, or a human year for that matter.  My favourite number is 17.  I’ll be that many.

M: What’s your favourite way to spend an evening?

J: Zooming around near the ceiling while the humans are not looking and making the other lads giggle or pretending to snooze when the humans are being observant (this happens far less than they like to think it does).

M: Do you have a best lad friend?

J: No, not really.  I enjoy spending time with all of them.  I’m trying to teach them to zoom but with very little success.  They much prefer to keep their paws on the ground (and by ground, I mean bed).  I spend a lot of time with Sam when I can – he has a very comfy lap.

Momu and Jumbah

Thank you Jumbah.  I am not good at flying – you would think I would be, being a Reindeer (NOT A MOOSE – Tsk!) – but it makes me feel a bit sick if I am honest.  I prefer to nap.

 

More soon.

Momu Meets…

Momu

Hi!  As the last “Momu Meets..” post was such a success (it was wasn’t it?), I thought I would do another one for you.  So from the youngest to the oldest (this seemed like the most logical way to do it) here goes:

Whitey

 

Momu: Hi, what’s your name?  Do you have any nicknames?

Whitey: My name is Whitey.  I don’t have any nicknames as I’m a bit too old for all that malarky.  I do think that a name change might be needed soon as I am not as white as I used to be.  I appear to be going grey with old age.  The girl thinks this could just be muck, but I am too scared to go in the washing machine to test out this theory.

M: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?  Were you always a lad or have you been rescued?

W: I am the oldest lad, and I have always been with the girl ever since she was born and I was put in the cot with her.  That makes me 29 and a bit human years.  I’m not even attempting to work that out in lad terms.  I may look a bit mean and grumpy but I’m not really, well not most of the time anyway.

M: How old are you?

W: I just answered that – silly boy.

M: What’s your favourite way to spend an evening?

W: I’m fairly easy going, although I have to say anything quiet is preferable because of my advancing years.  I don’t particularly enjoy it when the younger ones get all boisterous and start jumping around.

M: Do you have any catchphrases or favourite sayings?

W: “Stop all that jumping around!”

M: Do you have a best lad friend?

W: No, not really.  I enjoy spending time with all the lads, as long as they are not jumping.

 

Whitey and Momu

 

Thanks Whitey!

Momu Meets…

Momu

Hi Momu fans!  (Sorry, was that a bit presumptuous?)

I thought a good way for you to get to know the other lads, would be for me to pretend to be a reporter and do a mini interview with one lad at a time.  Sounds fun right?  Here goes…

LB

 

Momu: Hi, What’s your name?  Do you have any nicknames?

Little Bear: My name is Little Bear or LB for short.  I am one of only a handful of lads with only initials for their most used name.  I feel a bit special as a result.

M: Can you tell us a bit about you?  Were you always a lad or have you been rescued?

LB: I am the newest lad here at the girl’s flat.  I was found in a charity shop basket just over two weeks ago.  The boy spotted me right at the bottom of the basket – the only part of me he could really see was my bottom.  This has been a constant source of amusement to the other lads.

M: How old are you?

LB: I’m not quite sure how old I am in total.  I still had Christmas tags in my ear when I was found, which makes me think I am only a few months old.  But I could be wrong.  My lad life proper only began two weeks ago, so I am only little in lad years.

M: What’s your favourite way to spend an evening?

LB: My favourite way to spend an evening is getting to know my new lad mates better.  I also enjoy finding a comfy place to lay my head for a sneaky snooze.

M: Do you have a best lad friend?

LB: I’m getting to know everyone really, but if I go into the front room to watch TV when the boy visits, I like to go in with Freddy because we look a tiny bit alike.

 

LB and Momu

 

Thanks LB, the newest member of our crew!

I hope you enjoy getting to know everyone over the coming weeks.  Be warned, it could take a while – there are loads of us!

More soon,

Love Momu. x

Rainy Days

Momu

Hi everyone!  It’s the weekend!  This usually makes everyone happy, because it means no boring work and quite often two whole days to spend doing exactly what you want to do.

Apparently it is meant to be summer here – it’s the middle of June, nearly the longest day – but there is this happening outside:

RAIN!

I’m not sure if you can see, but it is really windy and rainy, and the sky all of a sudden goes a very dark purple/grey and then amazing amounts of rain falls all of sudden, making everyone wet and grumpy.

Needless to say for a lad, the perils of rain are even greater than for humans, because we can literally get soaked through whereas humans jut get their clothes wet – and that isn’t nearly as bad when the rest of you is dry.

Yesterday was another rainy day and the journey home for me and Mike was quite tense, we are never quite sure if the bag is enough protection against the rain and we want to avoid a night on the radiator drying out at all costs.  Spending a night there eats into precious mooching time, and you can never have too much time to mooch as a fully fledged lad – it is one of the first things you learn at Lad School.

Luckily we survived the downpours yesterday unscathed.  The girl had to immediately change into her pyjamas as soon as she got in.  We think this might have been a handy excuse, as she seems to do this everyday regardless of the weather.  Laziness really.  Tsk…

More soon,
