    Hi everyone, hope you’re doing good with your english!

    I’m happy to talk about my family. That’s an extended one but there are not so many people. I live with my grandmother, my grandparent and my little sister. We get on well and like spending time together. I think it’s really good to have an extended family when everyone can take care of each other, especially of the elder people.
