I am a sucker for plants; I love them and cherish them. Every now and then I pick up an orphan plant from the streets, one that is neglected, almost dying and left with the garbage. Some of my plants have been with with me already for ten years, and from my most favourite plant I take cuttings and plant them to grow them into baby plants to gift to friends and share the joy. I even have some plant friends with whom we share plant cuttings – it is a great hobby.

For this year's Wool Week, Bas Kosters collaborated with Granny's Finest to make a special creation, inspired by the 'Geitenwollensok'. 

The 'Geitenwollensok' is surrounded by stories and associations. Thus, the wool of the goat has nothing to do with the authentic sock, but this animal is associated in historical writing with small farmers and farm labourers.

The end of the year is getting nearer, when the days get shorter, and we go towards the holidays, is it not time for reminiscing and thinking how to help our fellow man? This month November, to me is all about Movember. I am participating in this men’s health initiative for the second year. By growing my moustache, and raising funds, I try to help raise awareness for men’s health issues. I am glad that the big moustache trend has flown over, and our moustache cups etcetera are in the back of the cupboard. That only means more focus on this sincere initiative.

Last week an online interview about a project that I was working on was placed on a Dutch news forum, accompanied by several pictures of my work and myself. I know that you should not read the anonymous comments on news forums, but my brother said they were quite severe, so I could not help myself. And it turned out they were quite explicit. Explicit words and opinions about me, my work, what I said and the way I look. For a lot of reasons that was something I could not understand.

Today was a joyful day. Let me tell you why. I received my first string of real pearls today, custom-made by Dutch jewellers Gem Kingdom. When I picked them up, I instantly fell in love with them, and we discussed why not more men wear pearls. Later on in the day it suddenly struck me: Why do so few men wear pearls? So many times in my life, I got asked whether I was a boy or a girl. Not that I look like a girl, but I wear things that in most people’s opinion belong to a specific gender category, in this case the category woman.
