Task 2 - complete the gap


Hello, it’s Friday today and I’m thinking about what I’m going to do at the weekend, but because of the British weather it’s really difficult to make plans. I’d like to go for a long walk in the country tomorrow, but what if it rains? I won’t feel like going for a walk in the pouring rain, will I? So I’d better think of something else that I could do tomorrow if it rains. I don’t know. Well, there’s a good exhibition on at the Royal Academy, I could go there. In fact that’s a good idea, so if it’s a nice day tomorrow I’ll go for a long walk, but if it rains I’ll go to the exhibition. So that’s the day planned, but what about the evening? Well again that depends. If there’s something good on at the cinema, I’ll go and see a film, but if there isn’t, I think I’ll stop at home and watch TV. What about you? Have you got any plans for the weekend?
