A family member is coming to stay with you. He/she will be arriving by train in the morning, but you won’t be home until the evening.

Write at least 150 words.

Dear Uncle John,

I am so excited that you’ll soon be here! I’m sorry that I won’t be there to meet you at the station – I have a work meeting I really have to go to but I’ve left the keys with David. Just go and see him so you can let yourself in. I’m sure you remember, but he’s the man living at number 21. Make yourself at home – there will be food in the fridge and your bed will be made.

The easiest way to get to the house is to jump in a taxi –it’s not expensive and the buses are so unreliable! I was thinking that when I get back we could perhaps go out for dinner? I’ll be back no later than six, so we could go to that restaurant we went to last time you came.

Well, I think that’s everything. It’s going to be great catching up!

Safe trip,
