Always - everything has to be organised and neat. If it's not, I will have to make it exactly how I want it. You could say I am a bit of a perfectionist...

Chocolate, of course!

CHERUB Series by Robert Muchamore.

My favourite Olympic sport would have to be gymnastics.

Opinionated, perfectionist and musical.

18: What chore do you hate?
I hate it when I have to stack the dishwasher.

19: If Elmo came into your room with a gun, what would you do?
I didn't know Elmo had a gun!

I am new to the blogging world so don't know many bloggers, but I would like to award the following -

Since I have just answered all these questions about me, I thought I would share a photo of myself and link up to the latest Kids Click competition theme, 'This is Me', and also iheartfaces, a weekly photo challenge.

Thank you for having me, Simoney!

Thank you for having me!

We went to a local picnic spot on the Brisbane River and the weather was beautiful and perfect for taking photos. I love the reflection in my sunglasses!

This is Me!

I also thought I'd share one of my favourite songs with you - Viva la Vida by Coldplay - and link up to my Mum's Sunday Song party. 

Thank you for having me, Mum!

Coldplay is an English alternative rock band that was formed in London in 1997. The group consists of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.

Viva la Vida is Spanish for 'Live the Life' and the lyrics to the song contain many historical and religious references. The song has inspired a great deal of debate about its meaning and people have claimed that the song may be about various subjects, such as the French Revolution. No matter what its  meaning, Viva la Vida is an inspirational song and it contributes significantly to my love of music. Let me know what you think of it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Well, thanks for visiting! It is school holidays know (YAY!!!) so I can post a bit more often, so please come back soon!

I hope your day is sweet,
