Describe an activity you enjoyed in your free time when you were young

  • You should say:
  • What it was
  • Where you did it
  • With whom you do this activity
  • And explain why you enjoyed it

● I enjoyed many free time activities when I was young, such as playing hide and seek
reading comics watching cartoon shows on TV and so many more
● Here, I would like to talk about playing cricket.
● There was an open ground in front of my house
● All the children of the neighbourhood used to play in that ground
● We made a team of 10 and started playing cricket
● I remember I was in seventh at that time
● We all pooled in money from our pocket money and bought a cricket kit
● I used to keep that kit in my home
● We used to play for 1 to 2 hours after school time
● I remember are used to finish my homework imagery after coming from school so that
I could go and play cricket.
● If I did not finish my homework, my mother would not allow me to go and play.
● It was the same with all other friends.
● So, in fact, this game brought some discipline in our lives.
● Our parents had no problem with us playing there as long as we did not disturb
the neighbours.
● I remember once I hit a six and it broke the window glass of one of my neighbours.
● My father had to pay for the damages done by me.
● After that we made it a point not to hit so strongly.
● This activity went on uninterrupted for about three years.
● After that a coloniser bought that area and started building houses over there.
● We could not play any more over there.
● But I still remember how much fun we had then.
● On Sundays we used to spend the whole day playing cricket there.
● The scorching heat of June and July did not deter us from playing.
● Whenever I see children play cricket in any ground, I am reminded of those good old days
of my childhood.
