- My feet are getting soooo wrinkly. #hippo

- Okes I'm not going to lie. Could do with some fresh water in this pool. Getting a bit grim in here.

- This pool party sucks.

- What if freedom relegates me to nobody status?

- They are saying I might not make it. This is the first I'm hearing of it.

- I made the front page of The Star! My mom would be so proud. If she hadn't chucked me out of the family unit. #solly #stroppie
