Thank you very much for your correction.
I just want to make sure of the following expressions.
1)We really had fun and not We had really fun.(the adverb goes between the subject and the verb)
It was a really boring day OR It was really a boring day?
2) I went to a party with some friends of mine
3) This year my Christmas holidays really flew by.(is the present perfect not possible because they are over now?)
4) In the afternoons I went shopping with my mum (the plural means that you did it every afternoon?)
5) After midnight I went bobsledding until the next (the following) morning
6) I returned home from the mountains on New Year's Eve.
7) I listened to music on my earphones on my walkman (can I use "on" twice in the same sentence?)
8) Our teachers always set us a lot of homework
9) I rested because long and tiring school days were approaching (can you tell me a synonym for approach?)

Thank you

    1 the first is fine; the second is not.

    2 period at the end

    3 fine as is -- question is correct

    4 fine as is, or you could say "Every afternoon,..." (notice the comma)

    5 comma after "midnight" -- delete the words in parentheses -- period at the end

    6 fine

    7 delete "on my earphones" -- simply "on my Walkman" gets the message across.

    8 "give" not "set"

    9 "approaching" is fine -- or you could write "coming"
