In which I show my true colours.

I've got a few extra pics from the cruise via the family.

This was at dinner on my birthday, and I'd just had happy birthday sung to me.

We had the same waiters each night, and they were lovely.

Most people would say this pose totally sums me up


I'd probably agree!
