look at me!

Just to prove that I DID go to Tenerife and swimming too~ It was good to see the sunshine even if I came back with an evil cold and can't hear or smell anything (poor me).

It was hard to be in a foreign place and not only not be able to speak the language (well, I tell a lie - I can tell the time in Spanish) but also not be 'allowed' to practise it. It's such a shame that the island has been over-run by Brits and Germans who fail to make any attempt to use Spanish, even when it comes to saying 'thank you'. Something in me was stopping me from using English, so I ended up pointing a lot and nodding.

Despite being thoroughly annoyed by the ignorant Brits (except my parents, of course, who are at least trying!) it was a good couple of days. My back hurts from the sunburn and my nose is running non-stop, but I love to do spontaneous things like that. And the apartment is nice (especially the sofa!)

Glad you were having fun. I don't believe that's you though. All we know is that the person has a head and an arm, and that's hardly evidence.

Yeah I suppose you're right. Don't you think it looks a little bit like me though?

Hope you're doing ok!

Well, I suppose that the hair's right as well, but that's hardly conclusive. It's all a conspiracy!
