Dear Jenny,

I hope this finds you and your family well, and I’m sorry I haven‘t been in touch recently. I’m writing now to let you know about my new job.You remember that I was working for that construction company a few miles outside the city? Well, I just got so fed up with it-I was working really long hours and, to be honest, the pay wasn't great. So basically I applied for a job at a new international company that was looking for admin staff for a new branch in the city centre.

I was a bit nervous in the interview, but in the end I got a job as one of the senior administrators. I am so happy! The pay is better, the working conditions are great and I don’t have to drive to work anymore. Anyway, I have to stop now because my sister is staying with me and has brought my baby nephew to meet me. She sends you lots of love and is asking when we can all meet up. Soon, I hope.

With love,
