best day ever

Shopping! (Shameless self indulgence; skip if you want)


My mother's birthday check to me came back into my account today (it was written on foreign funds), so while the bulk of it will be going into our savings, I get to play a little, and in doing so, recommend to all of you the fabulous things I have been finding.

But first, I need to recommend a CD Bob got me for Christmas - Sara Maclachlan's Wintersong. It is simply gorgeous, and chock full of some really interesting interpretations of holiday songs. Her version of What Child is This is masterly, The First Noel gave me goosebumps, there's a remastered version of Song for a Winter's Night that is much better, and her self-penned title track makes me cry every. single. time. Go get it. You won't regret it.
