I go to school five days a week, so I have two days off —
Saturday and Sunday (I'm lucky, because some other pupils
have the only one day off). During the week I am very busy,
so I like to have a rest on weekend.
I am not an early riser and it is a rare Saturday or Sunday
when I get up before 9 o'clock. I enjoy staying in bed, when
1 don't have to hurry anywhere.
We have late breakfast at 10 and watch TV. Usually we
have something tasty: meat salad, fried potatoes, chicken, cake
If the weather is fine, I usually do not stay indoors, I and
my dog go outside. Often we go to the park and play there.
If the weather is rainy and gloomy, I stay at home and watch
TV, listen to the music, read, the books.
After dinner we go visit our grandparents or relatives, or
just simply take a nap. Sometimes when my friends call me we
go roller — blading near the Opera theatre I like roller —
blading very much, I think it is a lot of fun.
In the evenings I like to watch video and music programs.
There is a big armchair in my room right beside the lamp with
blue shade. If it is cold I like to sit there with cup of coffee
Sometimes I do something special on weekends: go to an
art exhibition, to the theatre, to the consert.
I always go to bed late on Sundays, and Monday morning
is the nastiest thing through all the week.
I like weekends very much, because I can rest and gain
some energy for the next week.

When a school-girl I always envied those students who
went to school five but not six days a week, as we did. So you
may guess, I had the only day off — Sunday. On Sunday, I
didn't have to hurry anywhere, that's why, I got up at nine or
ten o'clock. I wasn't an early riser. I did my bed, washed
myself and went to the kitchen. In the kitchen the table had
already been laid and I always had something tasty on
Sunday: fried potatoes, meat salad or my favourite applepies.
After breakfast, if the weather was sunny, I usually didn't
stay indoors, I went to see my friends. We often played volleyball
or basket-ball in the yard and in winter if there was
much snow out-of-doors we went skating and skiing in the
But sometimes the day happened to be rainy and gloomy.
I preferred to be in watching TV, listening to music, reading
books, speaking over the phone or just lying on the sofa
idling away the time. Some of my classmates could watch
all TV-programmes from morning till night, but I think it's
rather boring, and I always felt sorry for those TV-addicts.
It's much more interesting to play a game of chess with
your grandfather, or help your mother about the house, or
argue with your father about the latest events at home and
In the evening, when all the family were together, we had
some tea with a cake or biscuits, we listened to my younger
sister playing the piano, sometimes we sang folk songs.
Every Sunday, when I went to bed, I was thinking that the
day had flashed past and the next week would bring new
problems and their solution.

When we have time for leisure, we usually need something
that can interest and amuse us. There are several ways to do
this. In big cities it's often difficult to decide where to go in
the evening. If we want to go out there are a lot of theatres,
cinemas and clubs in our country where we can spend our free
time. (But in small towns and villages they have no actors of
their own. So they invite a group of actors from a big town
to show plays.)
People who are fond of music join a musical
section where they are taught to play different instruments.
Those who like to dance join a dancing section. People who
are interested in sports can join sport sections such as tennis,
basket-boll, chess and others.
And, of course, all the people use radio or television. They
switch on the radio set or TV set and choose the programme
they like best of all. People who are interested in sports listen
to or watch football and basket-ball matches. Everyone likes
to see skating and dancing on the ice. Some people like musik.
They listen to concerts of modern and old music, new and old
songs and see dances. Television helps us to "visit" different
lands, see fish and insects, lakes, rivers and seas. We are shown
different countries, cities and people who live there. On TV
people could even see both sides of the Moon. Radio and
television extend our knowledge about the world. All that we
can do at home. So I think, that ways in which leisure time
can be spent are different and interesting!
