Hello Auntie Pauline.
Thanks so much for writing - it's been so long since I've heard from you, we
haven't spoken since that holiday in June 2001 and that unfortunate incident
with the jelly and the light bulb (I'm so sorry about that - but the plumber
sorted it out in the end). How are you? How are things in Nigeria? How is Uncle
Mbutu doing? It sounds like your job at the bank is going well.
I'm doing well, I finally finished my degree and I am now a qualified financial
planner. This is a very interesting deal you've told me about - have you spoken
to Cousin Jenny about it? I think she'd be interested, but I have some clients
who would be interested if Jenny isn't.
Love and kisses to you, Uncle Mbutu and little Mfume.
