    Question Adverbs of frequency and the past tense

    Would correct this short paragraph, please?

    Check the usage of the adverbs of frequency with the past tense

    Daisy Humple had a small apartment near the center of Wickam City. Her boyfriend, Simon, was a magician. He lived a long way from Daisy, on the other side of town. Every weekend he appeared at her apartment. He usually brought her chocolates or flowers. He pulled them out of his hat. Sometimes Daisy and Simon played cards. He always won, and Daisy thought he was lucky. Actually, Simon never lost at cards or any other game. He was a very cleaver man. He was also very amusing. He told a lot of stories and Daisy always laughed . Simon and Daisy were very happy together, but they were a mysterious couple. They often disappeared on weekend, and nobody knew where they went.


    Thanks a million in advance

    Wickam is normally spelt Wickham, but it's your story.
    Nothing wrong your adverbs or tenses.
