1986 A School-girl's Diary (2)

   At twelve o'clock or half past      
 twelve we go for our dinner. Then we  
 have a playtime till quarter past one.
 Then we go into the classroom and work
 for three quarters of an hour. Our    
 next playtime is at two thirty till   
 two forty five.Then we work and at    
 three forty-five we go home. When I   
 get in I have my tea.Sometimes I go   
 out to the Recreation Centre or the   
 Leisure Pool for the evening. I also  
 enjoy walking with my friends or      
 riding my bike. I watch the television
 some time in the evening as I have    
 several favourite programmes, but at  
 nine o'clock I go to bed.
