Music on Sunday, Traditional New Year's Concert Vienna

Every New Year's day we have a tradition in our family; we watch the New Year's day Concert from Vienna. I love it and think it's a great way to start the New Year. A family gathering with some lovely music to go with it. So today some lovely classical music from past New Year concerts;

Music on Sunday, Christmas

There are a lot of Christmas songs and I've posted a lot of them in the last years but this year I want to give you the more classical or Christmas carol songs. Although the first one isn't a real classical song it isn't a pop song either. It is a song that I discovered through an add to be honest. The Scottish Irn Bru add a few years back. But this is a lovely cartoon/film.
Enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas.

Reading and writing

It's just been a bit busy here. I've been a bit under the weather (well had the flu but went to work anyway, but very early to bed)and other than that I'm writing stories again.
Not much time to write a 'normal' blog. But I'm hoping that will change soon. Just a week more and I will have a week and a half off. Yay! So I'm hoping I will find the time to blog again.

Also I want to have some time to read more. Not only fanfiction (which I do a lot as well, not only write it) but actual books. I have some laying around.

Reading list:

- Sherlock Chronicles

- The Hobbit and LOTR books - Tolkien

- last two Outlander books - Diana Gabaldon

- Four - Veronica Roth

- Parade's End - Ford Maddox Ford

- The Steady running of the Hour - Justin Go

At the end of the year the different radiostations are treating us with the best of what music has to offer. All kinds of music is touching your ear most you could choose yourself by the way. They made it into a list and we can all enjoy it for days. This week the Dutch Radio Veronica has the top 1000 of all times and in a few weeks Radio 2 will have it's yearly top 2000. I love lists and music. So here are a few of the top 1000 goodies.
