Dear Ana Paula’s Mum!
Let me talk to you as Mum to Mum. I can honestly admit that I would like to persuade you to allow Ana to buy a bicycle. I know, sometimes children have strange wishes and we - mums, must be strong to say no because we cannot allow them everything. But Ana’s heart’s desire is having a bicycle which is a wonderful idea. She would then cycle to work and to the shopping centre. This way she would spare lots of time and she could help you more. I would also like to highlight how good it is to ride a bike in order to keep fit and healthy. Cycling helps to reduce cholesterol levels – this is also my personal experience. If I remember well Ana also has some problems with her cholesterol level. Cycling is not as dangerous as many people think. Especially not when you wear a helmet! I am sure Ana would be a responsible cyclist on the roads and she would use lights on the bike when she rides it after dark! What is more, cycling is the most environmentally friendly form of transport! To sum up, having a bike has only advantages. Please, let her buy one. Thanks.
Hi Ana Paula! Will this help? I hope so. But, you have to promise me one thing. If your mum allows to buy a bike, you will not try to read any books while you are cycling. OK?
Yes, we have lots of wonderful bookshops here in Slovakia and we can buy books written in Hungarian, in Slovak, even in English.
Ana, I would be grateful to you for helping me. Could you suggest some links to K.thy from HCM, Vietnam? She/he would like to read books in English on the net. I am sure, you know a few. Unfortunately, I do not know any links because I have never read any books on the net. For me (To me?) reading means curling up on the sofa, having a cup of tea and then I can enjoy the book.
Ana, it would be fantastic to visit the Sao Paulo Museum of Art and the Pinacoteca Museum with you. I love the paintings of impressionist painters. I also like the idea of looking at photos of masterpieces on the subway! Brilliant!
Adriana, I feel that you have been sad. A little sadness comes out in your last post. Have you been in a bad mood recently? Or am I wrong? Do not worry about your English because it is superb. Neither you nor I take any English classes and we both have been learning it just for fun. It does not matter how long we will study English as long as we can enjoy it. Maybe it will last 3 or 5 years…. The most important thing is enjoying what we do. Don't you think so? We both try to fill every requirement - being a good mother, wife and excel at work and so on. I am sure, you can cope with these things well. Chin up! Yes, all we need is love…I think that one thing is certain, having a family and being loved are the most gorgeous feelings we can ever have. Finally, thank you for the pictures, the flowers are marvellous.
James Zhih-Cheng Wu, I have got itchy feet reading your post. I would like to go to Taiwan right now and learn English while I am using a toilet there. :) Just kidding!
Naheed! What is the news with you? I miss you!
Thanks Leila, Hyoshil, Marianna, Elena, Benka, Ibrahima for your comments. I am glad you liked my post. At long last, this strange new spam manager does not eat your comments.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday! Bye, bye
