Half-way through my journey
During the weekend I was also thinking that I am half –way through my journey as a blogger. This day last fortnight I wrote my first entry. I think it was an enjoyable phase in my life I went through. I hope that all readers of my blog have similar feelings and I also hope that I did not make them tired. People who have written me comments have motivated me to write my next post. I feel the need to do my best for the next two weeks. Thank you for your kind comments. Thank Lewis for his help.
I would like to show you how difficult it is to speak for me. Last week a lovely person phoned me from the BBC. She said that they would call me to ask about my blog, about my feelings and so on in two days. I agreed but I had already known that it will not be easy to me. I revised all sentences which I have learnt about how to make a phone call. When I was called again I was so afraid that I will not understand the questions and I will not able to say any word in English. If I had a few butterflies in my stomach because of my first entry two weeks ago, now I had a million butterflies in my stomach. So, I was called and was listening to the Talk about English on the phone when somebody said: “Anita! Jackie will ask you after three minutes.” And later: “Anita! You will come in two minutes.” I thought that I would not be able to say anything. Now I will show you the outcome on the BBC.
Listen to the interview
To be honest, I am not satisfied with what I said. I had so much more to say when the interview was over and I calmed down. Writing is so much easier than speaking. Fortunately, I signed up to attend an English course again. Hopefully our English teacher will come from England, so we can practise speaking, too. If I will have a chance to speak to Jackie again in the future, I hope that I will do better.
What did you all do last weekend?
On Friday evening we planned that we will visit my father on Saturday in order to help him in the garden. My elder brother lives in the Czech Republic because he got married to a Czech woman. Last weekend he came over with his twins and his daughter. They always stay in my father’s house. Anyway, we planned a big family work together. Unfortunately, on Saturday my husband‘s meeting did not end in good time so when we arrived they had finished all work We were entertained for lunch by my sister-in -law. After lunch we had a lovely time, chatting and tucking into tasty fruit from my father’s garden. The twins are loud and naughty but live far away and when they visit home once a month everyone is trying to spoil them. On Sunday they popped in to see us. They have a sweet tooth and I prepared them apple pie for the trip home. Csilla was helping with baking the apple pie because she wanted to learn to cook some meals and desserts. She seems to be better at making desserts than meals but she is improving.
I can’t wait to hear about Superman!
Bye for now! See you all tomorrow!
