Just a quick note to say Tootle-pip, as this open blogfest is drawing to a close. Sorry I haven’t had time to write more often.
Lewis, break a leg! Best wishes for your new arrival and on becoming a Dad! Hmmm, superstitions about babies? I think here in the UK, if your baby has teething problems, you are supposed to rub the mother’s wedding ring on the gums. I can’t really believe this works, but you never know!
It’s been great catching up with you all and it’s wonderful to see you all using the language you’ve learned on this blogging section of the site. Keep at it! You are all so dedicated and I just know that being part of the blog is improving your English. I’d like to say a special ‘well done!’ to my former student Naheed, who is a really committed blogger and deserves every future success in her studies and career.
Thanks for all your comments and I hope we can be in touch again soon – maybe this blog party can become a regular thing?
Keep learning English and keep having fun!
Tootle-pip – a rather old-fashioned way of saying ‘goodbye’
Blogfest – you can put the word ‘fest’ after many nouns. It’s short for ‘festival’, so it gives the idea of a party or celebration. For example, you might have a ‘foodfest’ if you have lots of tasty treats or a ‘musicfest’ if you have lots of music to listen to
Break a leg! – Good luck!
When a baby is teething, its teeth are breaking through the gums for the first time
Keep at it! – keep it up, persevere
