  1. I love this post, Kim, so lovely to find out more about you and your three things on a desert island really made me chuckle - quite like the sound of that! Good choice of favourite song and I love purple too. Definitely agree that it would be very cool to be able to do magic as well. Hope you manage to achieve your dream of going to Disney World one day too :-)

  2. love these tag things, great answers too :)

  4. Sweetheart, you're not average, No mummy is average!

    Feet freak me out too and good to hear your superhero cape will be the same colour as mine! Also very impressed you know the number of the Now album!

    What is it with Dads?! Mine's several years older than yours and won't slow down. I'm sure he believes the day he stops being busy is the day he'll die or something :(

    Great answers lovely x
