Little My mug
Picture: Dina Grigoreva. Picture from a personal collection
I drink coffee from a big Moomin mug. It has a picture like this (shows). I bought it around the time when I moved several times in a short time period. It was horrible, although I didn’t have any other items besides the ones that I could fit in a bag, suitcase, and carry with me. I moved everything by myself by bus. I looked exactly like this Little My on the mug, who has a cart and bundles everywhere (laughs). When I saw it, I realised it described my life. A real portrait of me. It was with that kind of worried look that I walked carrying all kinds of bags. But now I have a home where I have lived for some time. I’m really happy about that. But this mug reminds me of a troubled period in my life.
