How was your day?

R: Hi Anya! How are you doing? 

A: Hi! I am doing well, thanks. How are you? How was your day?

R: I am fine. It was good, thanks. I woke up at 6 AM this morning.

A: Really? Do you always get up so early? Why?

R: Yes I do. I live out of the city and get to work by car. I have to leave home at least at 7 AM in order to be in the office by 8 o’clock. I usually have breakfast at 6-30, take a shower and go to work.

A: I see. What do you usually have for breakfast?

R: I like eating fried eggs with toast and a cup of coffee in the morning.

A: Lucky you! I can’t eat too much in the morning. So sometimes I don’t have breakfast at all!

R: Really? I can’t get by without breakfast. For me it’s important to have a good one.

A: Yeah. I understand. So how was your work?

R: It was good. I have too much work lately. So I really get tired by the end of the day.

A: When do you finish? At 6 PM?

R: No. As a rule I work from 8 AM till 5 PM. So I escape traffic jams. I really like such a schedule. I usually come back home at 7 o’clock.

A: Ok nice!

R: What about you? How was your day?

A: Pretty good, thanks. As you know I’m working from home now!

R: Yeah I remember! That’s awesome! You don’t have to spend much time on getting to work. 

A: Absolutely. I usually wake up at 8 AM, do some yoga, have breakfast and take a shower. Then I turn on my laptop and start working.

R: I see. Yeah it’s very convenient. Did you have a lot of work today?

A: Not so much. By 5 o’clock I’ve done everything and could finish my workday already.

R: Ok nice. What do you usually do after work?

A: I like spending more time outside. The weather is wonderful this week!

R: Right. So if you have some time, we could go to the outdoor cinema. What do you think?

A: It’s a great idea! Let’s go!
