Meet Chula

When Tatiana was two years old, back in 2001, her favourite song was "My monkey likes lettuce".

A mi mono le gusta la lechuga.
Se la come con sal y con limón,
muy contento sentado en el balcón.

My monkey likes lettuce.
He eats it with salt and lemon,
happily sitting on the balcony.

As she could not speak properly yet "A mi mono le gusta la lechuga" was really shrieked "Mono uta chula", followed by a wide grin. Clever girl. :)

When Jamie gave us this week´s prompt for The Happy Book, I looked for a mascot that felt "right" for me. Not too big. Not too small. Something I could relate too.

This was the obvious winner:
Meet Chula, my companion this week.
His name is in honour of a happy sang "mono uta chula". That´s why he is sitting on a lemon. ;)

He´s already been up to a couple of adventures. Pictures mosaic on Friday. :D

Memories like that are really something to treasure so I can see why you have chosen your little friend.
