There is more than one sentence here - which one do you want revised?Originally Posted by farcus
A possiblity is -
"If, for example, my Mum called at 3 p.m. to say that she wouldn't be back until 9 p.m. and I was to wash my clothes in the meantime, I probably wouldn't start until 8 p.m. and be lucky to be finished by 9 p.m.!"
For the second -
"During the whole ordeal I kept telling myself, 'No worries/Chill/Hey/Plenty of time, it's only 5 o'clock, or 6 o'clock, or whatever! There's plenty of time. I've got all the time in the world.'"
Hope this helps,
