  1. Hello,
    To tell good night or have sweet dreams is very fine.
    Getting something fixed by himself is very nice instead to call someone to fix it.
    Discussing with our family about to do something is important.
    Have fun English learners.

  2. Good afternoon.
    I am ready for bedtime early before 11 pm, when I am feeling sleeping, but my daughters go to bed around 2 or 3 hours after. They do not make noise, and just listen music or watch movies on the computer.
    I have my car towed to the mechanic shop in two or three times. This kind of service is expensive in a big shop, but if you have a good mechanic to fix small problems you save money.
    To eliminate any water leaks whenever it rains is easy, just keep maintenance in your roof every three or four years. But if you see a few roof leak call your roofer to fix it without loose time.
    Thanks a lot.
