My photo was taken in 1991 during a holiday in the Algarve with my boyfriend. Well when I say 'my boyfriend' he was when we booked the holiday but by the time we went we were no longer together. I have absolutely no idea why I still wanted to go on that holiday with him, looking back I should've sent him packing & taken one of my friends instead, but being only 21 and probably still 'in love' maybe I was hoping that given a little sunshine & sangria the relationship would be rekindled! Oh how wrong I was!!
Clearly I did have a good time, why else would I have my mouth open so wide, laughing loudly?? (Maybe a little too much Sangria in the bathroom had something to do with it!) It wasn't all fun though, as, along with the weather, our 'friendship' deteriorated in the second week when he told me that the reason we had broken up was because he had been, and still was, seeing a friend of mine behind my back!!!!
OMG, I wanted to go home to my Mum there and then but still had to spend another few days sharing a tiny apartment with someone that I couldn't stand to be in the same Universe as, and it was raining outside!
Oh dear this was supposed to bring back happy memories and there I am sharing with the world one of the most humiliating break-ups of my life!
The photo does bring back happy memories of having lovely tanned slim legs and the best perm that I had ever experienced though..........
And by the way......I may just be organised enough to actually post my Flashback Friday on a Friday next week!!
