Sample response

If I had a day off I would most probably do some gardening. I had been meaning to do this for a while. We moved to our new home about three months ago after I got a job in the city. Although we have enough space to create a garden, I haven’t been able to plant more than a couple of saplings. The last few weeks were pretty hectic and I found myself working even on Sundays. I am in the probationary period right now, so I really need to focus on my work.

Of course, I could have paid someone to do the gardening for me, but I prefer doing this job myself. Our previous home had a beautiful garden. Almost all plants and flowers in that garden were planted by me. Actually I used to spend much of my free time there. But then I got this job, changed homes and became quite busy. Now I don’t get time for anything let alone gardening. I will get my sister’s help for this. She also enjoys this sort of things, but she lacks the initiative. I know she will be more than happy to lend me a helping hand if I start working in the garden but she is unlikely to do it on her own.
