Answer

Dear Peter,

I hope you and your family are doing well. It is my sister’s birthday this weekend, and we are throwing a little party for family and close friends. You should definitely come!

The party is going be at the café in High Street, where we used to spend a lot of quality time together. I’m sure you know the way to the café very well, but in case you can’t remember simply text me, and I will send you directions. The program for the party is quite fun; we are going to eat, listen to music, and I’ll bring a specially ordered cake with my sister’s name written on it.

You and I have been friends for so long, and you know how much my sister loves you. She will be thrilled if you come. Also, I know you haven’t seen each other for a long time, since you left town to start university. I hope you are doing well in there, and my sister and I would love to hear all about it at the party.

Hope to see you very soon.

Yours,

Liam
