 Hi Sara!


We're looking forward to seeing you next Sunday  (under/at/above) the campsite. We're having a good time. Sam and I run (until/at/in) the mornings. Anna swims (in/on/under) the pool, and Eve gets croissants for our breakfast (on/at/to) a baker's in town. Then from about ten o'clock (from/till/at) lunch, we do what we want. There's a wood (above/from/behind) the campsite, so sometimes I go for a walk. We normally have lunch (at/to/on) one o' clock, and then we go (in/at/on) the car to the seaside. Sometimes we have a picnic (above/on/in) the beach, or we drive to one of the towns or cities nearby.

(At/On/From) the moment, I'm emailing you from an internet café (under/on/in) Perpignan. (On/In/At) night, we cook a meal. I've attached a photo of our kitchen! (On/In/At) the photo you can see there's a small fridge (under/behind/above) the table, and there are lots of pots and pans (under/on/above) the cooker! The weather is beautiful now, but the campsite manager says there was snow a month ago (in/on/at) Easter!


See you soon,
