2006/2007 – 2 nd TERM


My name is Nicola. I’m 13 and I’m from Dundee, in

Scotland. I live on a beautiful big farm, about eighty
kilometres from Edinburgh. Dundee is a small town but I love
living here because there are always many interesting things
to do. There is only one inconvenience! When I go out with my
best friend Mark, everybody knows it in the next day.
I usually get up at seven o’clock in the morning. While my mother prepares breakfast, my
dad feeds the animals and I have a quick shower, but sometimes, when its freezing, I stay in the
bathtub more than 30 minutes.
I have classes in the morning from nine to midday. After lunch I have to do my
homework and study. When I finish, I play with my sister, Sarah, on the computer and I often
help my parents: we feed the horses, cows, chickens and pigs, cut the grass, water the plants…
I always go to bed at half past nine very tired.
I have got lots of friends. In my free time I like going to the
cinema three times a month and watch football matches of Dundee
United every weekend. February is my favourite month because
once a year I travel to Africa with my parents and visit a different
African country each year.
