Hi Gooday,

Would anyone please tell me which is of better sentence? Or you may want to suggest another way of writing this sentence? Thank you:)

1. It was a shame for me as it has been the 4th consecutive years i'd spent that special day away from my mum.

2. It was a shame for me as it has been the 4th consecutive years i'd spent that special day without my mum being with me.

Hi,

1. It was a shame for me as it has been the 4th consecutive years i'd spent that special day away from my mum.

2. It was a shame for me as it has been the 4th consecutive years i'd spent that special day without my mum being with me.

Both phrases are acceptable. I prefer #1. It's a little simpler and more direct in meaning.

I'd make a few small changes, ie It was a shame as it was the 4th consecutive time that I'd spent that special day away from my mum.

Best wishes, Clive
