Typo or freudian slip?
Haha oh dear, it looks like I probably had too much wine with my dinner
I had the day off work today and Monday is a public holiday in the UK, so I've gone away for the weekend. The plan was initially to stay in Northumberland in the north of England, but I couldn't find any accommodation there so I'm in the south of Scotland instead.
Today was mostly spent travelling and I definitely didn't feel like opening my textbook by the time I got to my accommodation tonight. Luckily, I had foreseen this situation and packed a novel in Russian to read instead. So this evening I've spent half an hour reading the first chapter of 'Загадочное происшествие в Стайлзе' (The mysterious affair at Styles) by Agatha Christie. I have definitely read this in English once, but it must be a very long time ago because so far I don't recognise the storyline at all.
Total - Russian: 32 mins, Croatian: 56 mins
