Sample Answer:

Dear Simmons,

Hope you are doing great. I'm still relishing the pleasant memories we had together during our last trip - it was wonderful. I'm writing to let you know that we have moved into a house in Bath, a town set in the rolling countryside of southwest England. I hope you would visit us soon.

As you know, my previous apartment was far away from my office and it was inconvenient both for me and Anna to commute a long distance daily. However, we could not shift our house considering Julie's school location. This summer I transferred her to Kingswood School in Bath and moved here soon after. Now the daily commute is no longer a cause of concern for us.

We moved into this house at the beginning of February and we really like it. A small garden at the front makes it even more beautiful. We now have enough space to park 3 cars! It has five rooms, a lawn and two large balconies. The best part is that the area is quiet and surrounded by astonishing natural beauty. After living in a flat in a busy area for nearly 8 years, a spacious house seems like a dream come true.

I hope you would visit us soon as I am really looking forward to having you and Linda with us for a few days. It will be fun.

Hope to meet you soon.

Warm wishes,
