294 - The Exciting Things in Life

Life is not so exciting for me at the moment, so I need to look for thrills in the small things in life, so that's exactly what we do today! Have you ever woken up at 2.30am and thought "wow, still 5 more hours before I need to wake up!" If yes, then this is the pod for you! So get the headphones on, sit back, relax and just keeeeeeeep on ROCKIN', baby! 👊

Keep an eye out for the following RnR Vocab in today's episode....

RnR Grammar:

In today's episode, I used some lovely 3rd conditional when I said "if someone had said to me 10 years ago, "you'll be working at home every day", I would have said "that's a dream!"

So as we can see, we use this structure to talk about hypothetical actions in the PAST and we used HAD + PAST PARTICIPLE to represent this. Then for the second part, we use WOULD HAVE + PAST PARTICIPLE.
