Our two kids are crazy about music
they love all types of music
they have a classical background and 
they need to have music on all the time
as they mature their tastes in music change too
the eldest  (I am sure I am going  to get this wrong)
so I will say she listens to Heavy Metal subgenres
which has also influenced the youngest
and this is their "thing"
brother and sister time
I never judge what they listen to...
my only problem is they crank up the volume to avoid hearing
my sweet voice!!!!!!!
I was told on the weekend I am a nag
I can tell you that shut me up for all of one minute 
I reflected on their words and then 
 I nagged 
to ask why they think this 

this weeks word
is none other than
and here is my take on the challenge
make sure you head on over to the blog 
to see what the rest of the design team created
well worth it!!
