other members of the family
sit on either side of the table.
I unfold my serviette; and
spread it over my knees. We
have three courses, soup, meat
or fish, and dessert. Mable
changes the plates, and hands
round the dishes.
When dinner is over, father
and I smoke a cigar, or one
or two cigarettes. Then we
have a nice chat together or
discuss politics. Sometimes
father has a nap after dinner.
Do you mind my smoking?
— Not at all. — Can you let
me have a match, please?
18. A Swedish Flat.
I live in Queen Street. My
address is 21 Queen Street.
Our flat is on the third floor
(in the fourth storey). The
ground-floor consists of shops.
The shops are let to a
bookseller, a jeweller and a
carpenter. Nearly all the houses in
our town are built of stone or
bricks (not of wood). Some
years ago there was a big fire,
and a great many of the old
wooden houses were burnt
down.
There are a few stone steps
outside (leading to) the front
door. We have no lift, so you
must walk up the stairs, but
