Mum wanted a train ticket and some other things from town, so I went shopping with my sister and brother yesterday. We caught the bus into town and got off at the bus stop outside the supermarket. First, we went to the shopping center and I changed my shorts there because they were too small for me. Next, we walked through the market. We didn't anything there, though.

After that, we went to the post office. There we some stamps and posted some letters. We couldn't find any white envelopes for Mum, but we did get a brush and comb from the chemist's next to the bookshop. They were quite cheap. Mum wanted some lemon soap for Grandma but there wasn't any. Then we collected a cake for Grandma's birthday. It was pink and it looked really !
