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....
This is a plea to everyone to please leave a review
The research is a bit of thorough this time
Working from home takes the edge off
We were in the office day in day out
Make some small talk with yourself
I’m going to throw in a caveat
If you wake up at 7.00 you’ve got your 8 hours and you can crack on with the day
Really sound financial advice
I on the other hand have a cracking spreadsheet
You spent quite a chunk of your day creating pictures of us in Paint
In the end, it paid off (using Microsoft Paint)
I’m happy as Larry to talk to people
Did you take out the insurance?
When the light is amber
That is living life on the edge
I’m a stickler for the rules
I was just trying to fit in, to blend in
There was not a car in sight
Literally got pulled over by the police
Just got a talking to
I’m an absolute hazard on the road here
You had to fight fire with fire
I was always on the front foot
It hasn’t gone down well in the UK
Are you doing it just for the kick?
A taxi is going to cost nigh on £100
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.
