I'm sorry I haven't written for so long. I've been terribly, terribly busy at school. This is a really crazy year. We have three big tests a week. I don't go out, I don't watch TV, I just study all the time. I hope your life is a bit easier!
Recently we had a big family event: my sister got married. I like her husband. He's a car mechanic. The wedding was huge, there was a party for 150 people in a sort of palace with a garden. There was lots of food and I don't know how many bottles of champsgne. We had a good time, but it cost so much that now I can't go sailing in the summer because there isn't enough money left! I think it's stupid to spend so much money on a wedding. When I get married. I'll have a dinner for the family and a small party for good friends.
Last week we also had a party to celebrate the last eighteenth birthday in my class: my friend Luiza's, who's the youngest in our year. I danced non-stop for three hours! It was fantastic. But that's enough about me. How are you? How are your friends? How's Ellen doing in her first year at university? Please write to me soon and tell me everything.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
