Hi Tom,
 
how are you ?  i hope well . firstly i must say thankyou ,, your lovely gift arrived , i have not heard of the paper cutting before,, i read that it is also done by hand, but yet such fine detail,, thankyou my friend.  can i send you something Tom ?  do i use the honk kong address that you had on the parcel ?
 
the fires are still burning here,, it has been very scary over the last week as they are very close to me,, the flames were too big to stop and nothing was spared ,, a friend of mine had to run for his life, he lost his house , car and all his personal things,, many people had to jump into the sea,, there is so much wild bushland where i live,, very beautiful but very dangerous when these fires happen,,  so with so many towns evacuated ,, the remaining houses were left and unfortunately some horrible local people used this time to steal belongings from these houses. everyone in our little community has been helping tom clean up and help the families affected with basics such as food , water and temporary shelter. i feel lucky to have my house and not been killed.
 
my daughter gave my wife and i a voucher for a river cruise today, so it was nice to relax and do this. i made friends with a family from south korea who came here for a holiday, i will send you some more photos of my family and add names so you can see and know who they are. how have you been my friend ? you are still working hard ?  your english is quite good, maybe a little harder to pronounce the words , but i think you will do well in being a teacher in this language. remember the five vowels ( a,e,i,o,u )  and the rest are consonants.  and a little rule in spelling some words in english is a simple little rhyme ( i before e except after c ) for example the word receive, and the word piece ( maybe this is too much information  )
i will say goodbye for now,, but will write soon,,, thankyou so much for your wonderful gift that i will treasure ,, have a good weekend,, your friend Nance
