My Birthday

   Birthday is a very wonderful day. Everybody likes to celebrate it. It is a good opportunity to spend time with friends, parents, relatives.
   I was born on the 10th of January. In the morning on my birthday my parents lay the presents near my bed. So the first thing I see when I open my eyes is my presents. My Mom and Daddy and my little brother come to my room to congratulate me and to sing "Happy Birthday".
   Usually we hold my birthday party in the evening. Once we went to a cafe to celebrate my birthday, but usually we celebrate it at home. We clean the house the day before birthday. In the morning of birthday party day my father goes shopping and buys everything we need.
   My mother bakes a cake or pie. By the evening food is cooked, the table is laid. We put on evening suits and dresses and wait for the guests. The flat looks nice and cosy. I am always very glad to meet my guests. I like to get flowers and presents. Mom gives me the telegram from my aunt.
   We have an abundant dinner on this day. Mom brings in the birthday cake. I blow the candles out. We dance and sing songs, play games and laugh, joke, tell funny stories. I think that my birthday is one of the best days in a year.

Мой день рождения

   День рождения — замечательный день. Всем нравится праздновать его, потому что это замечательная возможность провести время с друзьями, родителями, родственниками.
   Я родилась 10 января. Утром в день моего рождения мои родители кладут подарки рядом с моей кроватью. Поэтому первое, что я вижу, когда просыпаюсь, — это мои подарки. Мои мама, папа и маленький брат приходят в мою комнату, чтобы поздравить меня и спеть мне: "С днем рождения".
   Обычно мы отмечаем мой день рождения вечером. Однажды мы ходили в кафе, чтобы отпраздновать его, но обычно мы отмечаем этот праздник дома. За день до моего дня рождения мы убираем квартиру. Утром в день проведения вечеринки, посвященной празднованию моего дня рождения, мой папа идет за покупками и покупает все необходимое.
   Моя мама печет торт или пирог. К вечеру еда приготовлена, стол накрыт. Мы надеваем вечерние наряды и ждем гостей. Квартира выглядит красиво и уютно. Я всегда очень рада встречать моих гостей. Мне нравится получать цветы и подарки. Мама подает мне телеграмму от моей тети.
   В этот день у нас обильный обед. Мама вносит праздничный торт. Я задуваю свечи. Мы танцуем, поем песни, играем в игры, смеемся, шутим, рассказываем веселые истории. Я думаю, что мой день рождения — самый лучший день в году.

My Day off 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 ha
