You are going away to travel for the summer. A friend will be looking after your house while you are away. Write a letter to your friend.
In your letter:
Say where you are going
Describe your house
Explain some of the things your friend must do to look after your house
Hope you are doing well.
Thanks again for helping to look after my house in August while I’m away. I really appreciate it.
As I mentioned to you I’m going to France for a vacation. I’ll be getting the ferry over to northern France where I’ll spend a few days, and then I’m heading to Paris for the rest of the trip. I’ll be staying with some friends there in the city most of the time. I’ll be online and will have my phone so you can contact me any time.
My house is fairly small so it shouldn’t be a problem to look after it. There’s an open plan kitchen/living room downstairs and then a couple of bedrooms upstairs. You can sleep in the spare bedroom, which is at the top of the stairs on the right. There’s also a small garden which you can sit out in when it’s sunny.
The only things I’d like you do to are to make sure you put the bins out on Tuesday night of the second week as they are collected Wednesday morning. Also, if you could water all the plants once a week it would be great. If you go out, please set the alarm as there have been burglaries in the area recently (I’ll leave you the code by the door).
Anyway, must get off now. I’ll give you a phone call a few days before I leave.
Bye for now
