A Few Of My Favourite Things | November

Harold and Maude

I didn't really know what to expect from this film-I only knew it was about a relationship with a big age gap, which sounded quite off-putting. But I gave it a chance when I had nothing to do one evening, and it is one of the sweetest, most visually striking, life affirming films I have ever seen. I cried buckets and I now want to live in a converted railway carriage.

Cassy visiting

Cassy came to visit and we had a fun day of dressing up in museums, sightseeing, and buying strange bits and bobs (which in my case included a bag of moss. Yes you read that right).

Otter spotting

While Cassy was here we also spotted the otter that has taken up residence in the local river! It was a magical moment.


I stumbled across the music of Sevdaliza on Youtube, and have fallen hard for her incredible voice and varied style. She's one of those artists where I keep thinking "This is my favourite song of hers...wait no this is my favourite song of hers..." because all her music is SO GOOD.

Baba Yaga's Guide To Feminism

I seem to be on a Baba Yaga streak at the moment. This article made me chuckle and gave me a new life motto.

This month I would like to say thank you to Cassy for being my one and only Patreon supporter-she has a new book, go check it out! I would also like to thank Natasha De Vil for retweeting a lot of my links, it really makes a difference.


  1. I loved Harold and Maud, I was a bit sceptical as well at first but it's such a great movie and also you're welcome my lovely, happy to help where I can :)

  2. I love the idea of dressing up to go to museums! Although I always dress weird anyway, haha.

  3. The museum dress-up looks like so much fun!
    And I'm reeeeeally excited about your otter sighting! What incredibly luck! I saw a big brown rat in the backyard last week which made me happy, too, but an otter is a whole different level. :)
