What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

    I have been expecting all the family members to join me for dinner tonight, but only you have come!
    I have been writing an article since morning and I have only few minutes left to finish it.
    I have been driving to the hill station, therefore I have only one way to go there.
    I have been sleeping all the day due to fever, so I have only few hours in the evening to finish the project assignment.

    I was working, when I broke my leg.
    I have been working even though my leg is broken.

    I have been struggling to learn English since I came to North America. Almost every day I struggle with my English when I need to write a report to my reporting manager. Last week I submitted a report but my boss redirected to me for correction. Since then I have been writing that report where I only have few hours left to finish. I have wasted a lot of time watching TV. I have just finished another assignment. So now I will go back to the report to finish it on time. I hope I will be able to respect the due date.
    I have been to Canada several times. I have done few English courses when I lived there. Those English courses are helping me to move on with my jobs. Sometimes I feel that I should have studied hard with my English. This time I have committed to study hard.
    please @Lynne make correction.
