NICOLE’S BLOG
Growing up there were four people in my immediate family – me my parents, and my younger brother. My parents wanted us to spend time as a family, so we used to eat dinner at home together sereral times a week. But there was a problem. My parents both orked full – time and didn’t usually feel like cooking when they came home at night.

So we thought of a soltion. My whole family would plan the next week’s meals and go shopping for foood on the weekend. Then I would cook dinner for the family a couple of times a week. (That was fine with me because I wanted to learn more about cooking anyway.)

When we started this new policy, my cooking was really simple. For example, I would just put a frozen dinner in the oven and make a salad. But I got bored with tht pretty quickly, so I started to read cookbooks and try differen recipes. After a while, I even made up some of my own recipes – and they were delicious! Everbody loved it when it was my turn to cook.

OLD FASHION!!!
In many ways, fashion used to be much simpler. Women didn’t use to wear pants to the office, and men’s clothes never used to come in bright colours. People also used to dress in special ways for different situations. They didn’t use blue jeans as business clothes or wear jogging suits when they travelled. Today you can go to the opera and find some women in evening gowns while others are in blue jeans. Even buying jeans used to be easier-they only came in blue denim. I’m still not used to buying green jeans and wearing them to work!
1.    What was fashion like?        ____________________________________________
2.    Did women use to wear pants to the office? ___________________________________
