Writing

My last weekend

Last Saturday my husband and I woke up at 10 AM, he got up, but I didn’t get up, I continued in my bed more time enjoying it. While I was on the bed, he maked our breakfast, which was bread toast with mermelade, fried eggs and hot chocolate, but my husband didn’t drink chocolate, he drunk coffee. He almost always prefers coffee than chocolate. Was late for breakfast, so we had lunch at 2pm. He prepared meat and vegetables, it was delicious.
After that we saw the movie Rambo but I don’t know which was if 1,2 or 3, then when the movie finished we had nap.
That night we had a meeting with a friends, the meet was in the my friend’s Fabiola home.
We leaved of home and first we pick up some friends, then we pick up food to (at?) the restaurant, because last Thursday we girls went there and had lunch and choose some plates for that night.
Saturday night was fun, we was laughed and ate a lot. We back home at 12:30pm .
