Dear such and such,
Thank you for your lovely card. So pleased was I to hear that you’re enjoying yourself and having a wonderful time. Delighted the celebrity haunt is doing well, there’s just not enough of those places coveting the market, riding on the name of a celebrity and staffed by hardworking chefs who’ll never quite live up to the name.
And like you said, you were needing a break away, a need many surely share.
You’ve been skiing? Isn’t that pleasant, I do love the snow.
The Snow Queen’s been taking to the slopes, didn’t you know? I love getting a little glimpse in the papers of her derrière on the way to work. Always lifts the spirits to see the Civil List put to good use. They’re so good for the economy. Sure the Americans don’t like France since they got rid of theirs. The Eiffel Tower? Not even comparable.
Sorry where was I? “Paris is lovely in the Spring?” Yes, I’m sure it is. Just a short drive to Disney World.” Is that right? Lovely.
Us? No, no just like to stay at home. Honestly, yes, there’s just so much to do. Staycation they call it. There’s just so much on offer, you know! So many lovely places to see, you wouldn’t have known its been raining. Didn’t dampen the spirits. Just lovely. So many places you never knew existed, right on your doorstep. Oh, and the train, they loved the train too. With a National Trust card, there’s just so much on offer.
Yes, we’re having a great break. It’s just lovely, lots of children and playdates, each has to be returned though. But it’s lovely welcoming multiples through the door. The more the merrier. What’s another three children when you’ve got your own two? Well, it’s five but I’m not complaining.
It’s been marvellous, lovely, really lovely.
Looking forward to catching up.
Lots of love,
