Grab a cup of coffee, find a comfy seat and discover some my favourite blog posts, films, etc from this past week.
Things to watch

It definitely grew on me, though. Particularly the fact that the voices aren’t perfect adds something very special. And Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen – hilarious!
Things to read
New blog in town: Restless Fingers are the musings of an adult TCK (Third Culture Kid) friend of mine. She’s off to a great start. I love her writing style and her thoughts on roots – do yours go deep or wide?

Things to listen to
“A Tale of Two Cities”. Charles Dickens’ famous novel as a BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama. I downloaded the podcasts over a year ago and finally got round to actually listening to them. I’m so glad I did! They’re very good! I have to confess I never read the book so don’t know how they compare. Not sure the podcasts are still available but you can buy a cd.
