Mount Bulla is one of the most popular winter resorts in Australia. It is about a six or seven-hour drive from the city. The resort itself is on the side of the mountain about one thousand meters up. The drive up is breathtaking. As you go up the winding road, the pine trees surround you and you can smell how fresh and clear (A8) ... air is. Snow has fallen and the ground is covered (A9) ... a white blanket. The actual resort is made (A10) ... of three traditionally-built hotels. The largest of (A11) ... three has a disco.

Just above the hotels is the ski-lift which takes you (A12) ... the top of the slopes. There are also skiing instructors who teach beginners. Quite often there are special shows put (A13) ... by professional skiers, which are fascinating to watch. You must like skiing to enjoy your stay as the resort is (A14) ... real paradise (A15) ... ski-lovers.

We used dried cranberries for the eyes and a baby carrot for the nose because it was a baby snowman. People are so amazed (A11) ... the weather that I have seen some of them just standing there staring as if they were in a trance. It looks like the work of a skillful decorator for a movie. It was chaos, though, for people going to work, a whole load of trucks were stuck (A12) ... the snow. And it's been (A13) ... very bad news (A14) ... the citrus trees — they're all frozen.

We decided not to send her to school, and we had (A9) ... great time — we even made a snowman (A10) ... the backyard. We used dried cranberries for the eyes and a baby carrot for the nose because it was a baby snowman. People are so amazed (A11) ... the weather that I have seen some of them just standing there staring as if they were in a trance. It looks like the work of a skillful decorator for a movie. It was chaos, though, for people going to work, a whole load of trucks were stuck (A12) ... the snow. And it's been (A13) ... very bad news (A14) ... the citrus trees — they're all frozen. Even if (A15) ... snow melts tomorrow, the damage is already done. So I'm afraid we won't be eating any local oranges this year!

Why do so many amusing incidents occur (A8) ... train journeys? I remember the day when a ticket inspector entered the compartment where six or seven people were sitting. Everyone quickly found their ticket except for the man sitting next to me. His hands dived urgently (A9) ... his pockets, and then he began to search through his briefcase.

Then, equally calmly, he drew the ticket from between the man's teeth, examined it with (A11) ... frown and popped it back again.

Why do so many amusing incidents occur (A8) ... train journeys? I remember the day when a ticket inspector entered the compartment where six or seven people were sitting. Everyone quickly found their ticket except for the man sitting next to me. His hands dived urgently (A9) ... his pockets, and then he began to search through his briefcase. Everyone else could see exactly where his ticket was — he was gripping it between his teeth. The ticket inspector calmly dealt (A10) ... all the other passengers. Then, equally calmly, he drew the ticket from between the man's teeth, examined it with (A11) ... frown and popped it back again. Once the inspector had left the compartment, (A12) ... most of the passengers settled down and carried (A13) ... reading their morning papers. As for the passenger who had had his ticket in his mouth, he popped it into his pocket, looking very relieved. He was generally quite (A14) ... friendly person, so to make conversation I said to him, "You must have felt foolish — searching (A15) ... all your pockets while it was in your mouth." "Foolish?" he whispered. "Not at all — I was chewing the date off."

At one time, I used to think that jogging was simply impossible.

Dear David,

You'll never guess what's happened — I've got a job! I saw an advert (A8) ... an administrative assistant at London Insurance, and sent in my CV, more (A9) ... curiosity than anything else. Well, to my surprise, I got an interview, and I managed to convince them that insurance is (A10) ... very career path I intend to pursue. Apparently, they were impressed with my ambition, especially when I said I was looking for the job (A11) ... good promotion prospects, and (A12) ... week later I was offered the job. They seem to look after you well — for example, I was told to send in a claims form so that they could pay (A13) ... my travel expenses to the interview. Little things like that make all (A14) ... difference. So I'm actually starting work on Monday David, why don't you apply? They take (A15) ... 20 new graduates each year. It would be right up your street.

Imagine the situation: a busy mother is pushing a heavy trolley around a supermarket. Her baby is sitting in the seat and crying (A9) ... food, while her two bigger children have become bored and are starting to run (A10) ... the shop. They have already spent (A11) ... hour in their car, stuck in queues of vehicles waiting to park, and the mother will soon have to carry a large number of bags back to the car. Wouldn't it be a whole lot easier (A12) ... the mother to order her shopping (A13) ... the Internet? This method of shopping saves time and transport costs, enables you to see (A14) ... much greater range of goods, and must surely be a lot less stressful. So why has internet shopping not caught on to (A15) ... greater extent? The answer may well be that most people still enjoy leaving their homes to shop. They want to be able to see and touch the goods, try (A16) ... clothes before buying them, for example. That is why, in my opinion, internet shopping will never replace conventional shopping.
