Best of 2011: Music

December 27, 2011 · 4 comments

Golly, it’s that time of year when time whizzes by and the new year will soon be upon us! My belly is groaning from vast quantities of lovely food, and I have new toys to play with (thanks, Santa!).

But all of this good cheer means I’m behind in my blogging and my inbox would be overflowing if it weren’t virtual. I’m sure it’s the same with you, so I made us a mixtape — a selection of songs I discovered this year.

Just whistle while you work…
