I've got a sister. Her name is Kate. She's three.She has got many toys:
four balls - red, green, blue and yellow; three puppies - black, white and grey; two brown monkeys, a yellow giraffe, a white bear and two nice dolls.
Do you think she likes to play with her toys? No, she doesn't. What she does like is – she likes to play hide-and-seek with me.
Do you know the way she does it. She hides under the table and says: "Helen,
where am I?" I say: "Are you on the chair?"
"No, I'm not" "Are you under the chair?"
"No, try again." "Oh, Kate, I try and try again, but I can't see
you!" Then she runs up to me and says "Here Iam!". This is the way my little sister Kate plays hide-and-seek.Isn't she
I was born on the 22nd of March. Birthday is a very remarkable day for me. It is
spring and the weather is fine. In the morning my parents come to my room to wake me
singing "Happy Birthday, dear Andy". They give me the presents. I like to get them very much.
Most people hold their birthday party on their birthdays. Usually, we hold my birthday party on Sunday next to the 22nd of March. Once or
twice we went for a picnic on that day, but usually we celebrate it at home. We invite my friends and relatives to the party. I get up early in the morning on
that day. My father and I go shopping to the district marketplace and supermarkets. We buy everything we need for the party. My mother stays at home
to clean the flat and bake a pie and cakes. Then we lay the table together, put on evening suits and wait for the guests. At about four o'clock my relatives
and friends come to congratulate me and I am glad to see them. They bring a bunch of roses for my mother and books, sweets and records for me. I thank my
friends for coming and the presents. My aunts usually buy some clothes for me as a birthday present. We have an abundant dinner on this day. Mother brings
the birthday cake and I blow the candles out. We dance and sing songs, make jokes and play games. When everybody is tired, we just lie on the floor and
tell stories or just listen to the music in my room. I enjoy my birthday party and my friends like this day too.
