How are you doing? Hope this letter finds you well. It’s been really long since we last met.
I’m excited to let you know that I’ve shifted to a new house, a fortnight back. Things have settled down and I’m planning to organize a house warming get-together this month end, preferably on the 28th. Since, it’s a long weekend, you can come on the 27th itself. This would be a great opportunity for us to spend some quality time together. We haven’t really been able to bond up since you moved to the suburbs for your job.
I can’t wait to tell you about the house, it’s just what I always dreamt of. The location is a little off the city centre, away from the maddening traffic and noise. The best part is that it’s a ground floor independent house which comes with a garden and a backyard. The garden has some lovely fruit trees, giving it a rustic appearance. It’s amazingly serene to stroll there while hearing the birds chirping in the background.
What I really like about the place is that it brings the best of both the worlds. Not only do I get to enjoy the countryside calmness but also am able to avail good transport system and all other amenities of a city life. It’s very comfortable to reach the office in the mornings and do my grocery shopping during the weekends. My parents too have adjusted very well to the new place. Moreover, the house is spacious with three big bedrooms making it easy to accommodate our guests.
I can’t wait to see you on the 27th. Give my regards to your mum and dad.
