Hello Mum ( The Reply)
Mum here, got your letter yesterday, been trying to call you ever since but keep getting voicemail or answer machine, but then again I do know how busy you are these days.
Don't worry about the flowers, they were Lillys by the way, they always make me think of funerals!
Dads knees got worse, he's now got to use a stick, but I suppose you have to expect these things when you get older. I do wish you and Dad would sort out your differences and get along better. Silly having a falling out about money, I know you'll pay us back the money we lent you for the kitchen extension but I also understand that these things take time and it was only 6 years ago. But you know your Father, he's always been impatient.
Little Stevie popped over this morning, what a suprise. He's such a good boy and so handsome, he's going to break hearts is that one. Can't beleive he's 18 next week. He said he is going out with his mates to celebrate on his birthday but wanted me and Dad to come over for Sunday lunch the week after. I said I would run it by you first to just to make sure, as I know how busy you are.
By the way, I spoke to him about the car he wants. You got it wrong, silly. The car he wants is only three thousand five hundred pounds! So I remember in your letter you said you were putting two thousand towards it, so I gave him a cheque for fifteen hundred. I made the cheque out in his name so that if he changes his mind he can then spend it on what he wants. Hope thats ok.
By the way I paid the latest yoga lesson invoice this morning.
