  6. Sponge Diving… Reminds me of the miserable git that comes over to Kos most days… Doesn’t speak a word of English, and insults the tourists with a filthy mouth… He should realise that some tourists speak Greek!!!

  7. AND my third answer is c) sponge diving
    I’ve only dived the once, just for a practice before we celebrated our Coral wedding anniversary on Fialhohi in the Maldives. Loved the reef with it’s thrilling and diverse variety of exotic marine species, abundant colour and warm sea temperatures. Perhaps I’ll attempt sponge diving one day!

  8. Sorry put wrong answer down last time too much drink answer is c) Sponge Diving hope this is ok putting another go in

  9. What a beautiful cup! It’s c) sponge diving. My iPad tried to change that to ‘spongebob’! Ha – can tell what I write about! X

  10. Well, if she’s ‘a child of the nineties’, the others have to be wrong. She’ll be approaching a) 21, unless my Maths is wrong or I’m following a red-herring!

    • Sorry, Carol, but the competition closed at 8pm. The winners have been announced… Thank you so much for your support today though, it’s very much appreciated x
