So that's Christmas over for another year. I'm currently somewhere south of Grantham, travelling back on the train down to London to be with my honey again. Saw the sis this morning, so the text I received on Christmas morning (a picture of my Christmas pressies, still sat in Lincoln due to bad weather!) physically manifested. Which is great!

The pressie haul was pretty good this year. As well as the Inspector Morse DVDs from the parental unit, I got both Queen Greatest Flix DVDs as well as a lovely collection of terribly hilarious Hammer Horror Dracula DVDs from C. (She knows I fancy Christopher Lee something rotten, and only teases me about it occasionally*. Star pressie this year was from [livejournal.com profile] not_here, who sent me a beautiful stainless steel casserole dish, so I can bore you all even more with new recipe cards in the New Year. Wasn't that thoughtful of her??!

There's still New Year to go, of course, so I'm not stopping there with the 'carols'. Although this next one can't really be called a carol, but it's definitely one of those songs that makes the season! I've picked this version because the singers are obviously having a fantastic time. So, here's The Spinners singing The Twelve Days of Christmas

* Only once or twice a week, in fact.

Without further comment because it's almost 2am and I've been trying to find this version on Youtube for several weeks, here's the Monte Vista Christian School Choir with:

A Merry Christmas indeed. With love to you all, because you are all fabulous.

So here's a brief hello from the frozen North of England. I'm typing this one-handed because Bonny has claimed my right hand as her exclusive property...

She is uttery adorable, but very tiny. She's not going to get much bigger either. There *will* be pics!!!

Anyhow, today's carol is one you will all have heard, but I've been searching for this particular arrangement for weeks. The discordant chanting underneath is wonderful, but it's the descant that is a true marvel. Here is the London Cantata Singers with "I Saw Three Ships".
