I like your photo Antonio - great costume. Anna must be happy to be graduating on Thursday. Will she look for a job, or does she want to carry on with her studies?
You mentioned the annual medieval event in Teggano. Is it a play? Do you have lines to learn? Is it a series of plays? York puts on medieval 'mystery' plays every four years (the next performances are in November this year). 'Mystery' meant 'trade' or 'craft' in medieval English; different groups of workers performed plays on a variety of religious themes. It would be nice if Teggano and York had this religious/dramatic history in common!
Your excellent English makes my job very difficult!!!!! I read your post, didn't know what suggestions to make, so went downstairs to watch Ukraine play Switzerland......couldn't find the remote control for the TV.....finally found it under a chair......watched some of the match....made a cup of tea and a slice of toast......still no goals......watched the penalties and came back to the blog.
So, some very small suggestions.... Anna will graduate on Thursday, rather than 'will be graduated' and fascinating costume not costumes (this one was probably a typo). You may not want to sound overexcited, but instead of saying you are 'happy' to see Anna graduate, you could say thrilled, overjoyed or even, over the moon!
So, both England and Italy through to the quarter-finals. The newspaper headlines today focussed on David Beckham vomiting on the pitch after scoring: 'Queasy does it, Becks', 'Here we throw' and 'The spewtiful game'. Oh dear.
My daughter, Clara, says she wasn't angry at me for suggesting she censor her post before she published it. This is a difficult subject I know, but isn't it better for her to say what she thinks to the person concerned, or say nothing at all??? Also, how about this traditional Yorkshire saying, 'if in doubt, say nowt (nothing)'???? Anyway, Clara and her older brother, pretty much already do what they think is right. My input is already minimal and mainly restricted to 'have you cleaned your teeth?' and 'where's the remote???'
Hope you have a good day tomorrow and I look forward to hearing from you again.
