    Welcome to the forum, mjld. . You might start trying to improve your English by looking back at that post. There are a lot of slips there, many of them caused by lack of capitalisation or apostrophes. Try to correct them and post your revised version here for our comments.

    If we are speaking one afternoon of things that happened that morning, the normal tenses we use will be past, simple and/or progressive. Write a few sentences and post them here for us to comment on.
