JACK’S WEEKEND

I am Jack. I live in Canada. I go to school on weekdays, but I have a weekend to myself. It starts on Friday afternoon and lasts till Sunday evening.

My typical weekend looks like this. On Friday evenings I can go to a museum. On Saturday mornings I usually play hockey with my friends, then in the afternoon, I do my lessons and help my parents about the house. My Sunday starts with a swim in the pool, then my dad takes us for a drive, with a quiet evening back home.

I try to work and play at the weekend. I don’t want to hear from anyone that “All work and no play makes Jack (and I AM Jack, you know) a dull boy” or “All play and no work makes Jack (me!) a mere toy”.
