Holiday Photo Album

As you know there are three things you have to do when you get back from your holiday.

  1. Put the washing on.

  2. Make a cup of tea.

  3. Show everyone your photos in order to make them really, really jealous of the wonderful time you've had.

Isn't it lovely meeting new people when you go away.
