Ronnie

I stayed in last Saturday night. I didn't do anything special. I cooked a curry for my wife, Anna. After the children went to bed, we played cards. Then we watched TV. Later I read a little, and we had a cup of herbal tea. We went to bed early because we were both tired.

Paolo

Last Saturday I studied biology all afternoon for an exam on Monday. In the evening I met some friends and we went-to the beach. Then we had a pizza and saw a film. It was awful! My friends went to a disco, but I didn't go. I went home to study. I hate exams!
