    Hi everyone!!!!

     

    The weather has been quite cold but today it was pleasantly warm. We got below zero a few times!

    Did you enjoy the year-end holiday? I did. I did very little. I relaxed, I relaxed and then I found more time to relax.  I had a few adventures in Tokyo. The roads were quite and the shops were quiet. The city empties when the year-end holiday rolls around. I guess most of the people who live in Tokyo are not actually from Tokyo. Well, I had a relaxing time and I hope you did too.

    With the new year comes new year resolutions. Did you make any? I hope so. I have several, both business and personal which I hope I will be able to accomplish this year.

     

    Last time I asked you about the following idiomatic phrases. Could you get them?

     

    1. Let’s go out for a drink for old  times’ sake.
    2. We’re living in rented accommodation for the time being.
    3. I haven’t seen Rob for donkey’s  years.
    4. I don’t remember that song – it was before my time, I’m afraid.
    5. The pace of life was slower in the past.
    6. We had to get up at the crack of dawn.
    7. We arrived at the station just in the nick of time.
    8. She decided to go to Paris on the spur of the moment.
    9. The coach will leave at five o’clock on the dot.

    Did you get them right?

    For today, I have one question. What is the difference between the following two words and where do they come from?

    CATSUP   and   KETCHUP

     

    Good luck and see you next time.
