Model Answer:
Weekends usually are reserved for some relaxation and fun. But, unfortunately, my weekends aren’t exactly like this since I have to work during the weekends also, most of the times. But, luckily, I got a rare free weekend about a few months ago when I really enjoyed my time.

But, before I tell you what I really did during that weekend, or how much I relished it, let me first tell you how I really had managed to get that free weekend, even though, I was very much scheduled to work during that weekend. But, things got little interesting when I received a call from one of my co-workers, just the evening before the weekend, in which, he told me that he was going to fill in for me on that weekend. When I asked, why he would want to work for me on that weekend, he simply told me that it would allow him the opportunity to stay away from his “mother-in-law” who was coming to visit his wife on that weekend. Needless to say, I didn’t say a word after learning the reason from my co-worker because I also know how difficult the “mother-in-laws” can really be sometimes!

Anyway, I did everything, I could, to enjoy the weekend, which included visiting some of my close relatives who I hadn’t seen in a long time. I also watched some of my favourite and old movies with my family. Apart from that, I spent a whole afternoon doing some shopping in order to buy myself some fashionable and trendy clothes. All in all, it was a terrific weekend for me.

I remember this weekend, mainly because it allowed me to spend some quality time with my family members and relatives in a very relaxing mood which happens with me only on some rare occasions. I remember it also because it allowed me to freely roam around outside and do the things without feeling the stress of work after a long, long time.
