Texto con phrasal verbs: working from home
It’s a challenge for many people to get up early in the morning and get to their offices on time.
Like many others, I believed that working from home was a blessing.
So last Tuesday I called in sick to work and told my boss that I would stay at home and do my job remotely.
I switched on my computer and logged in to Facebook first thing.
Then I reminded myself that I needed to concentrate and quickly logged out.
Since I wasn’t going into the office, I called off a meeting I had planned with a coworker and texted my friend to say I was staying at home.
After that I managed do a bit of work before my friend called me back saying she would drop by in half an hour for a cup of tea.
I checked out the contents of my cupboard only to discover that I had no tea. So I put on my coat and went to the nearby shop.
When I got back home, I understood that there would be no chance for me to get around to working again.
My friend turned up minutes later and we spent hours chatting over tea and sweets.
I returned to the office the following day, sure that I would never try working from home again.

Otro texto: A Terrible Day
I don’t believe in superstitions, but last Friday the 13th was simply terrible.
I woke up late because my alarm didn’t go off, but that was just the beginning.
I left the house as soon as I could, and I was on my way to work when my car ran out of petrol.
Then I took a cab but it turned out that I had left my wallet at home, so I had to go back again!
When I finally arrived at work, my boss got angry at me about the report I hadn’t submitted before the deadline.
He told me that if I kept coming to work late, I would get into trouble.
So I got to work, but I couldn’t concentrate because one my colleagues kept on talking about the weather, her family, her dog and other stuff.
I usually get on well with her but I was in such a bad mood that I just told her to leave me alone. Now she is not talking to me!
Well, I’ll get by, of course, but the day was really awful.

A Christmas Card
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
It’s been a long time since we last talked to each other, and I wish we hadn’t fallen out.
This is an update on what’s been going on with our family lately.
John has proposed to his girlfriend at last – they’ve been going out for five years! She gets on well with everybody, and our family loves her!
Sadly, Mary has broken up with Steve and is trying to move on now. She has taken up a new hobby – dancing – and started learning French.
She is very stubborn – she really takes after her father. We’re hoping that maybe Steve and Mary will make up and get back together one day.
Little Denny has grown up so much – you wouldn’t recognize him! This is a photo of his from the Halloween party – he’s dressed up as a black cat.
I miss you so much and hope you will come round to spend some time with us after the new year.
