Dear Weng Lee,

 

As you can see, Jeffrey and I have moved into our new house on Avana Avenue. In fact, we did so two weeks ago. You'll be wondering what happened to your letter, I guess. well, I've got it. We dropped over to our old place and picked it up.

 

Have you any idea of the work involved in moving house ? We've had boxes and bags of stuff all over, in the living room, the bedrooms, the kitchen and even in the bathroom. That doesn't mean that Jeffrey and I have been lazing around all day either. It's unpack, unpack, unpack all the time while the children play hide-and-seek and Cowboys-and-Indians around us, scattering the things I've just piled neatly.

 

Although I am soon going to become a nervous wreck, I am actually glad to be here. We have always longed to live by the seaside. And, when we heard that this house was for sale, we rang the people up immediately. It was going at such a reasonable price ( expatriate leaving the country in a hurry ). We grabbed it without a moment's delay.

 

Jeff finished painting the whole house before we moved in, that is, all except the kitchen. It is a real problem trying to cook a meal with ladders and paint tins in my way. However, after all these years of marriage, I have learnt not to quarrel with him over things like this. So, I'm just doing my best and trying not to lose my temper. However, if the job doesn't get done by the end of this week. I can't guarantee anything !

 

So, can you see what a state I must be in ? Aren't I a dutiful, loving sister write to you in spite of everything ?
