My Day Off
Most people in our contry work five days a week
but students and pupils work six days. They have only
one day off. It is Sunday.
I like this day very much. On this day I wake
up later than usual. As soon as I get up I air the,
make my bad and do morning exercises. Then I
have breakfast. Two more hours for getting ready
with my homework and I am free.
I meet my friends and we discuss our plans
together. We may go to the cinema or theatre, to
museums and parks.
In fine weather we also like to be out of town.
We find a nice place somewhere in the forest or on the bank of the river.
We lie in the sun, play different games and swim. In
winter my friends and I often go to the skating-ring.
When the weather is bad my friends come to my
place. We listen to music or go to the cinema.
In the evening all the members of our family
get together. We have our supper, watch TV or read
books. I enjoy my days off very much.
