I've been so busy with preparations for the concert recently, I'd quite forgotten I was meant to give a three minute speech on my country today! So, I got up at 6.30 today and managed to get it done just in time for the tea & speech meeting at 10.00am. It wasn't very good because my teacher corrected it heavily and I would have to pause every sentence and try to figure out where the rest of the sentence had gone. My own damn fault, really!
Still, a number of people came up to me afterwards and said they liked it. And, of course, the Anglophiles told me how much they liked my country. I had lunch afterwards with one such lady and my teacher, who confessed she loved Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie and custard cream.
(I was wearing nice clothing today because of this and the cat has completely chewed throught my sleeves and essentially ruined a nice top. Unless anyone knows how to repair a thin loose-knit sweater-y thing? Need to wash the kitty-saliva out first though... *deep sigh*)
