    Explanation
    After I had had breakfast, I cycled to school and arrived about 15 minutes early. I definitely hadn't been looking forward to going to school that Tuesday because the headteacher had asked me to see him at 9.30. This was unusual. I knew I was late with some homework so I felt quite worried. I sat outside his office for ten minutes before I knocked on his door because I knew he liked punctuality. Surprisingly, he smiled when I went in. He obviously knew that I was nervous and that I had been waiting for the right moment. And our meeting wasn't about homework but about a competition I had won!
