Dear _________,

Answer – 

Dear Joey,

I’m just writing to tell you I’ve shifted to a new house last Sunday.

I took this step because, first off, it was quite far from my new workplace and the commute consumed so much time, and also, the traffic has become crazy these days. On top of that, as you know, the neighbours were nagging me all the time, which wasn’t ideal for me.

Anyway, my new house is a 2-storey building and is built-in 2000 square feet. It has a porch, a garden, 5 bedrooms with attached washrooms, a modular kitchen and a big hall. All in all, it has all the modern amenities that I need and is fully furnished.

I’d be delighted if you came over to my house for a sleepover. I’m sure you’ll love this place, and it’s been a long time since we met, so we’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Also, the neighbours are friendly and well-educated, so you’ll have no trouble making new friends here.

I hope to see you soon.

Keep in touch,
