    A free day.

    A free day

    Today is my free day. I donít go to work. I must not receive any phonecalls related my job. So I do some houseworks. I go into my storage and take the vacuum cleaner out of the shelves. I use a towel cleans outside it, I switch on the power of it and start cleaning the floor of my storage. I work very hard within an hour so the floor of my storage is very clean, tidy and fresh.
    Then I walk out of my storage and go into the chicken. I wash my dishes and pots. I wash inside as well as outside it. Then I pick them up the shelves.
    I go in my bedroom. I take all of dirty clothes and bring to the chicken. I put them into the washing machine. About hour later, they are washed.

    Please correct my short paragraph.

    Does that describe your typical day off, or are you describing one specific day?

    Re: A free day.

    Are you quite sure you went into the chicken?

    We don't tend to use "much" in positive statements. We use it a lot in negative statements.

    I'm relieved to hear that!

    Re: A free day.

    How big is your storage room? You are saying that you hoovered (vacuumed) the floor of that one room for an entire hour! That seems unlikely.

    Re: A free day.

    Could you please explain "my wrong", "my error" and "my mistake"?

    Re: A free day.

    Certainly.

    My error
    My mistake
    My wrong

    Although "wrong" can be used as a noun, it doesn't work in this context.
