Can you please check these sentences? I'm still doubtful about the use of prepositions. Thank you very much.


1) I was last ashamed of myself when I lost all the matches in a tennis tournment (The last time I've been ashamed of myself is wrong?)
2) I've never blamed a friend for something he did. My friends sometimes forget to take a film when we meet.
3) I think I'm independent of my parents though I can't do the ironing or the washing. I buy clothes and make breakfast by myself (myself?). My grandma helps with (not for/ at?) meals. My mum washes clothes (better:does the washing). I can do all other things by myself.
4) I last felt sorry for my best friend when the girl he likes refused him.
5) I was (and not have been) proud of myself when I took (got) a good mark in English/ when I took the best mark in a history test/ when I passed the driving test.
6) I last blamed myself when I broke a vase. My mum gave me a very hard (?) punishment for it. I blamed myself for not listening my maths teacher.
7) My sister was playing volleyball when she bumped into me (and not fell on?) and I broke her glasses.

    1) The last time I was ashamed of myself was when I lost all the matches in a tennis tournament.

    2) I've never blamed a friend for something he did. My friends sometimes forget to take a film when we meet.
    [What does "take a film" mean?]

    3) I think I'm independent of my parents though I can't do the ironing or the washing. I buy clothes and make breakfast for myself. My grandma helps with meals. My mum does the washing. I can do all other things myself.

    4) The last time I felt sorry for my best friend was when the girl he liked dumped him. ["refused" is OK; "dumped" is what people often say when one person breaks up with another.]

    5) I was proud of myself when I made a good mark in English/ when I made the best grade on a history test/ when I passed the driving test.

    6) I last blamed myself when I broke a vase. My mum gave me a very harsh punishment for that. I blamed myself for not listening to my maths teacher.

    7) My sister was playing volleyball when she bumped into me, and I broke her glasses.
