My Day off

   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 or pie. 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 and read.
   Sometimes I do something special on weekends: go to an art exhibition, to the theatre, to the concert. 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.

Мой выходной день

   Я хожу в школу пять раз в неделю, так что у меня есть два выходных дня — суббота и воскресенье. Мне повезло, так как у других учеников всего лишь один выходной. В течение недели я очень занята, поэтому на выходных мне нравится отдыхать.
   Я не отношусь к людям, которые рано встают, поэтому случается очень редко, что в субботу или воскресенье я встаю раньше девяти. Мне нравится нежиться в кровати, если не нужно никуда спешить. Мы завтракаем поздно, в 10 часов, смотрим телевизор.
   Обычно на выходные мы едим что-нибудь вкусненькое: мясной салат, жареный картофель, курицу, торт или пирог. Если погода хорошая, я не остаюсь дома, я и моя собака идем на улицу. Мы часто ходим в парк и играем там. Если погода дождливая и мрачная, я остаюсь дома, смотрю телевизор, слушаю музыку, читаю книги.
   После обеда мы идем проведать наших бабушку и дедушку или родственников, или просто дремлем. Иногда, когда мои друзья звонят мне, мы идем кататься на роликах к оперному театру.
   Мне очень нравится кататься на роликах, я думаю, что это очень весело. По вечерам я люблю смотреть видеофильму и музыкальные передачи. В моей комнате стоит большое кресло прямо рядом с лампой с голубым абажуром. Если на улице холодно, я люблю сидеть в этом кресле с чашечкой кофе и читать.
   Иногда я делаю что-нибудь особенное по выходным, посещаю художественные выставки, хожу в театр или на концерт. В воскресенье я всегда ложусь спать поздно, и утре в понедельник — самое противное утро всей недели.
   Я очень люблю выходные, потому что я могу отдохнуть и набраться энергии на следующую неделю.

At the Library. My School Library.   Libraries are very important in the life of all people. We can't buy all the books we want to read.
