A day in the life of James Blunt
James Blunt is an ex-soldier who is now a singer.
He lives alone in Ibiza, Spain.

I live in a beautiful house. It's about 150 years old and it's on a hill with a lot of trees. From my window, I have a fantastic view of the sea.

I usually get up at about 9.30, and I have a shower. I always wear jeans and a T-shirt. Clothes don't really interest me. I have two pairs of jeans, one jacket, and six T-shirts. I never have breakfast - I'm not hungry in the morning. I make a fire and clean the house. Then I play the piano, or I sit on the sofa and play the guitar.
I live near a small village. For lunch, I go and buy bread and a tin of tuna, or maybe ham or cheese. I never cook. After lunch, I sometimes work in the garden. I don't have a TV- I only have a music system and my music collection. I like singer-songwriters from the 1970s, like Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen.
In the evening I usually go out with friends. We have dinner at one of the old Spanish bars and then we sometimes go to a club. Before I go to bed I lock the doors. When I'm in bed I look out of the window at the night sky and think how wonderful life is.

a) Where does James live?
b) What time does he get up?
c) What clothes does he wear?
d) Does he have breakfast?
e) What does he do in the morning?
f) What does he have for lunch?
g) What does he do after lunch?
h) Does he watch TV?
i) What does he do in the evening?
