Translate the following sentences or sentence chunks into Hungarian.

1. I’m fine once work starts, and the parlour is full of cows, with their sweet breath and big soft eyes. This morning, Ted’s sister, Susie, was with me, and as she worked down the line of the udders, disinfecting, she asked: ”Did you ring that number?” - ...


2. Of course I hadn’t. Susie has been pestering me lately to get a life – and, crucially, start earning money – because even with the cereals we grow, and the sheep, Westcott’s 250 acres don’t make enough to support our two families. -...


3. She’d seen a job in a flower-nursery advertised in the village shop and wanted me to try for it. „Active body wanted, with nimble fingers.” it said, as if anyone with a brain (or, indeed, a head) was not required. But Susie was wearing the T-shirt her husband gave her, with ’Stroppy Mare’ on the back – and it reminded me about her bad temper, so I did ring, and was told to come straight over for an interview.- ...

I just hadn’t ever thought of it that way before. -...


6. „Are you sure you don’t want to see those bullocks?” he twinkled. I noticed he had a misspelled tattoo – ’No Regerts’ – on one forearm „Absolutely,” I said, starting the negine. „You know where to find me if you change your mind,” he called out as I left. -...


7. When I got home, Henry was angrily greasing a tractor in the yard. He took over Ted’s contracting business when he died, and often wishes he hadn’t. I went upstairs, feeling stangely ruffled – and flattered – by that meeting with the bullock man.-...


8. It made me realise there’s a whole world of fun out there that I’d like to be part of again. Maybe I should even start dating, although I’ve no idea how: do I go on the internet or get friends to matchmake for me? The one thing I am sure about is that I’m never taking up bullock man’s offer. I know I’d regert it. - ...
