EN – Lazy day (Telling someone about your day)

Text 1:

It was a really lazy day for me. I woke up late and I immediately knew that I wasn’t going to get much done today. I just kind of lounged around in my pyjamas for most of the morning. I checked my emails and social media, had a light breakfast, and then just chilled. I did a bit of daydreaming, too. I guess I was trying to come up with ideas to make some money but somehow I ended up on Twitter. I had some errands to run in the afternoon, so I got dressed and went out. At night, I watched a few episodes of my favourite show, snacking on popcorn and chips. It was a really nice day. I didn’t get much done, true. But sometimes we deserve a day off, don’t we? 

Text 2:

Today was a lazy day for me. I started off by sleeping in for a few extra hours. I was supposed to go to the office today, but I called my boss and told her I’d work from home. The truth is that I didn’t really work. I did attend a meeting and send a few emails, but mostly I just pretended to work. In the morning, I made myself a cup of coffee and watched the news for a bit. After my 11 a.m. meeting, I had a light lunch and then curled up with a book. I dozed off a few times while reading, so I ended up taking a nap in the afternoon. Once I woke up, I grabbed my guitar and played some songs. I wrote a song about you. I hope you’ll like it. Anyway, at night I watched that show you recommended. I loved it! I’m already on season 3.
