Played truant today.

At 75 + I have earned my very first certificate, so this morning to celebrate Motley and I went out in the van.

This is a nice carpark that was built a few years back when someone thought the ferry to Poland was going to be popular, a lot of money wasted, but we motorhomers can take advantage.
This is the first time I have seen other vans there, I normally have it to myself with a couple of cars at the most.

The 2 vans one behind the other are Mum, Dad and son and they are full timers.

I didn´t expect it to be such a lovely day because at 7 am I could only just see to the bottom of the garden it was so foggy.
The temperature was +10°c when we left at 9.30, when we got back it was 20°. I hadn't taken anything with me, not even water for Motley or a cuppa tea for me as I had not intended being out long. Maybe I will go again tomorrow.

Well done you Jan! I'm still struggling on with my Russian. It's incredibly hard to write the language so I find it hard to make notes that would help me get to grips with it. But the predictive text is very useful haha!

It must've been lovely to get the van out again!

Certificate number 2

We walked our local part of the river this morning and I heard the first cuckoo over the other side in Poland, then a Pirol, I have never seen one in real life, they are very shy.
Also heard the first frog chorus of the year, I will record one when they really get going in a week or two.
The nightingales are also here, but not in full voice yet.

These certificates are only given to give you a boost to carry on learning I am sure, it´s when I can use the words in a conversation I will give myself a certificate.
Anyway, you know why I am missing these days I must keep up my lessons.

Yes. The superlative is "that's fecking brilliant" and the comparative is "My Da was bigger than your Da."

Very well done though.The only certificate I have is for Cycling Proficiency. It says FAIL on it, but I don't mind.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Put this way we all know what they are.



Examples of superlative adjectives
Adjective Comparative Superlative

good ----------better--------------the best
bad------------worse--------------the worst
far-------------farther-------------the farthest
little------------less ---------------the least

Talking Number 4

Still can´t grasp the grammar, it sometimes takes several tries to get it right, but when you speak it´s difficult to distinguish between unsurer, unseren and unserem I´m sure.
