Joni Mitchells "Blue" album is one of my most favourite freaking albums ever !
Just thought you'd like to know.
It's certainly in my top 5 albums....what are my top 5?!
Jeez, that probably changes regular like, but today we'll say that they are, in no particular order,
Joni Mitchell "Blue"
Kate Bush "The Kick Inside"
Siouxsie and the Banshees "Dazzle"
Queens of the Stone Age "Songs for the Deaf"
Bauhaus "In the Flat Field"
Anyone else care to share their top 5 albums?!
I came home to a parcel of joy from the darling Sue yesterday!
2 fabulous brooches, a gorgeous scarf, the most amazing headpiece (did you make that,sweets?!), a killer kaftan, a necklace, earrings and a scrummy pair of tights!!
What do we say?!
We say SQUEE!
Thank you, lovely!
Aside from that splendidness, I gave up on Salman Rushdies "Shalimar the Clown".
It just wasn't lighting my fire.
Might just be timing, so I will tackle it again sometime.
For now, though, I've decided to re-read some Anne Rice for a little Southern Gothic inspiration.
After all, we're going to be in New Orleans in June, and I need to get really excited.
It's been a very long time since I read any Anne Rice.
I am enjoying the "Life and Times of Gypsy Rose Lee".
I just put a pile of books on my Kindle yesterday arvo, a nice mixture of history, biographies and a bit of travel.....just getting it ready for my couple of trips this year.....
Usually I travel with 5 books, and then get anxious about finding book exchanges, as I tend to chew through them with travelling.
This time I will have an entire library at my fingertips.
