Nastya gets the last word
Today is the last day of the February blog and Anastasia is unlucky as she got a short month but lucky because she got a leap year thus one more blog day. I’ve been checking all day for your final post Nastya so that I can comment on it but alas none appeared (up till now) therefore I am denied the last word. Teacher’s, like parents, always want the last word but I’ll hand it over to the student today.
It’s been ‘hot’ here and sunny, 14 degrees today. I’ve been putting hats, scarves and gloves away and dropping off winter coats at the dry cleaners ready to pack them away for next winter. Maybe I’m being a bit premature but I really hate winter clothes, boots, thermals etc and just want to get out my summer wardrobe. I took Teah to playgroup this morning which she thoroughly enjoyed and this afternoon, I’ve been doing some work at home. Tonight, I was going to have a friend coming over for dinner and the odd glass of wine but she cancelled. That means I have to drink the wine myself :-) My weekend plans are half work and half play (with Teah of course).
I liked the wedding invitation, it’s original and quirky. You are right that you look better then Alex but his head isn’t that big in the picture!! Regarding your wedding, I want to send you best wishes, hope you have the kind of wedding day that you’ll remember forever and have a long and happy life together.
Good luck in your language studies in the future and wish you every success in the future. It’s been a pleasure blogging with you. I’ve been extremely impressed by your command of the English language and you should be very proud of yourself for achieving such a high level. My husband is not a native English speaker and was only 60% understandable in English when I firstmet him. Now (10 years later) everyone comments on how fluent and ‘natural’ his English is (apart from the Eastern European accent!) I’d like to hear you speak to see how your pronunciation is, by the way!! However (this is a secret between you and me), your vocabulary range and language usage in general is better than his. Does that mean you are a great student, I am a poor teacher or my husband is a poor student?!!
That’s all folks (for today), best wishes to you Anastasia, in all you do.
alas Used to express sorrow, regret, grief, compassion, or apprehension of danger or evil.
