Children by Robert Miles is one of my best childhood memories as my mum used to chuck us both in the bath then we would go into her bedroom and dance crazily to this song to get ourselves dry. Tons of happy memories surround this song for me.

When I was really young my mum told my brother Adam and I that we could get a puppy. We went to a dog shelter to see the pups. They brought out this dog to us but it wasn't a puppy. She looked so sad and like she needed loved. Mum said she would need to decide what to do. That night my brother and I told my mum that we had to take the dog and we weren't bothered about a puppy anymore. We took her home and called her Colby! She was our family dog for the next 12 years!

I'm a very strong headed person. Whenever I get an idea in my head or decide I want to do something, I go for it full force.
