Nick. What lovely weather we had last week. I hope it keeps dry and sunny this week, too.
Mary. Well, I wouldn't be sure. Have you heard the forecast?
Nick. No, what does it say?
Mary. Occasional showers tomorrow morning, drizzle and more cloud later on, unsettled for the rest of the week.
Nick. Oh, isn't that awful! I do hope it clears up by Saturday.
Mary. Why are you so eager?
Nick. Don't you remember? We were planning an outing for this weekend.
Mary. Oh yes, shall I ask Ann? She is a great one for outings.
Nick. Of course. Phone her straight away, will you?
Mary. All right.
Mary. Can I speak to Ann, please?
Ann. Speaking. Is that you, Mary?
Mary. Yes. I say, Ann, what are you going to do over the weekend?
Ann. Well, I haven't made up my mind about the whole of it yet, but I'm staying in on Saturday night. Why?
Mary. Nick suggests an outing on Sunday. Would you like to join?
Ann. Of course. A camping weekend would've been a better idea, only I've got to stay in on Saturday.
Mary. Well, I know camping's your hobby, but you'll have to put up with a day's outing, this time.
Ann. All right. When shall I see you about the arrangements?
Mary. Tomorrow after work I suppose. Will that be convenient?
Ann. Yes, quite. See you tomorrow, then.
