Hey Debs! How's it going?


Sorry I (not / write) before but I (be) really busy over the past few weeks. The exams start at the end of next and I (stay) up late most nights revising. I (also / have) a lot to do at work as we (just / move) to a new office and we (have) to do a lot of work to get the place in order. Excuses, excuses...Yes, I know!

I (see) Margie last Fiday as I (give) myself a night off from revising and we (go) out to The Deminka - your old favourite watering hole. You'd be disappointed if you (go) there now as it (change) completely. They (redecorate) the whole place in white marble with black leather sofas! It (look) awful and the atmosphere (change) too. Most of the students (go) and the new customers are mostly drunk businessmen. There you go. Nothing is for ever.

Margie (be) really well. She (start) a new job and she's got a new boyfriend too. Changes all round! I (not / meet) him but he (sound) really nice. The (go) out for a couple of months and she (already / meet) his parents. They're going to Greece on holiday together in August, so it sounds like things are hotting up! After our disappointment at the Deminka, we (go) for a bite to eat at a new Italian restaurant that (open) in Celebrity Square. Not bad at all. Great pasta, and the tira mi su (be) just divine. Needless to say we (make) pigs of ourselves.

Anyway, how about you? What (be) up to since you (write) last? (you / see) Howard lately? How about Miriam and Johnny? What (be) they up to these days?

I (post) some pictures of my night out with Margie on Mypix.com. Here's the link : http://www.mypix.com/adpo20-42343wsdf.htm

Write soon!

Love

Sally
