Перепишите и письменно переведите текст. We live in a new nine-storey block of flats



We live in a new nine-storey block of flats. It is situated in a very picturesque place, but far from the centre of the city. Our house is a short walk from the bus stop. It usually takes us about an hour to get to the centre of the city. There is a big supermarket on the ground floor and it is very convenient to do every day shopping.

Our flat is on the first floor. It is very comfortable and well-planned. We have all modern conveniences, such as central heating, electricity, gas, cold and hot running water and a telephone. There are three rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a hall in our flat. There is also a balcony and we can enjoy a lovely view of the river.

The living room is the largest room in our flat and we use it as a dining room and as a sitting room. In the middle of the room, there is a big table and six chairs around it. Opposite the window, there is a wall unit with lots of books, a TV-set and a videocassette recorder. There are two comfortable armchairs and a small coffee table in the right-hand corner. There is also a sofa and an electric fire in our living room. We like the living room best of all, because in the evenings we often gather there to watch TV, talk and have parties.

My room is the smallest one in our flat, but it is very cozy and light. There is a bed, a wardrobe, a desk, an armchair and several bookshelves in my room. There is a thick carpet on the floor. The walls in my room are light brown and there are some big posters on them. There is a computer on the right-hand side of the room. I like my room very much, but from time to time I change it round. I quite often move the bed and change the posters on the wall.

Our kitchen is rather large and comfortable. It is very well equipped. We have got a refrigerator, a freezer, a microwave oven, a coffeemaker and a toaster. We haven't got a dishwasher yet, because it is very expensive. But I am sure we'll buy it in the nearest future. The nice curtains on the window make our kitchen very cosy.
