This weekend will be long because we have a catholic Easter, and there will be no work from Friday till Monday. All the supermarkets will be closed on Friday and Monday. We're gonna make a tripe probably, work in our small garden and go a lot for a walk.

No I don't have any plans for weekend. In these days, everyday is weekend for me because of my country situation. Sleeping, eating, surfing the internet, studying English from British Council web and watching movies are my daily life cycle.
