2. The view outside your window

Transcript item

This is the view outside of my bedroom window. I'm up in the attic of a massive house in Brighton. So as you can see, I can actually see the sea. I know you have to squint your eyes, but it is there in the background. So I can also see my pansies. They're the little flowers in the flower trough in front of me. The sun's just coming up because it's quite early. It's pretty chilly out there. I can already feel my nose a little bit cold as I've got my head stuck out the window. But the pansies are facing the sun, which is lovely. It's blue skies today and just a few clouds. I reckon it could be pretty chilly on my walk this morning. I look out onto lots and lots of houses and buildings right across to Brighton. It's a seaside town and I love it. I can also hear the seagulls. I'm not sure if you can today, but they're pretty loud, especially in the morning and especially as it's coming up to springtime when they'll start to get together. They also tend to have little baby gulls on the top of my roof, which gets very noisy because I'm sure they put their boots on. What else can I see out the window? Well, we've got trees, but they're not many leaves on them at the moment. They should just start to spring into action in the next couple of weeks, I reckon. I haven't got any flowers on my rosemary either, but I do tend to use that for cooking. Tell me about what's outside your window, as I'd love to know.

Look at the photo and listen to Tina talk about the view from her window.

This is the view of my vacation in the hotel Las Margaritas, it is front of the beach. I was resting in the hamaca, I felt the sea  breeze, and I  enjoyed my vacations, swam in the pool and the sea. I ate seafood. And I saw the down.

This is a summer view from the terrace of my country house. It's amazing, isn't it?

This is the view from my window...it's a misty morning where I live. It's the beginning of spring, and the trees are still quite bare, but soon they'll have lots of new, green leaves on them. Where the trees are, there's a small stream running past. And in the distance you can see our village church. In a few months, we'll only be able to see the top of the roof because it'll be hidden by the trees. It's very peaceful - you can just hear the sound of the birds chirping.
