Hi, how’s everything? How’s your grandma? How did your father take Mia’s news? I think my parents don’t know anything about it or at least haven’t brought up the subject with me. Mother and I are currently working full time to get everything ready for the benefit. Hope you’re feeling better and are having a great time :) Looking forward to New Year’s!

Love,

Sooo? Do you have news from him?

Or Ian? From Mayra’s updates on insta I guess nothing good?

My brother is on facetime with J everyday, can you believe it?

I am having a great time though honestly I miss you. Some of my school friends now seem so boring in comparison to the mcr lot.

Also my mum suggested I diet, be honest, am I fat?

Love xxxxxxxxx

We got your package in time, everybody loved it. You got me the best present of all. It’s a shame you didn’t get to come this year though, but since we’re getting on a plane tomorrow, see you soon :)

Everything’s calmed down a bit here, Julia took Mia’s side with father and now they are friends again, finally. Also, father’s letting Mia come back to the house if she promises to apply for acting schools. Let’s see. How did the dinner party go last night? I’m sure you were wonderful and raised a lot of money!

I’m not too well tbh and have started to write a thousand times to Mary but never send it. Do you know how she’s doing?

Love,

We’re back again, such a pity, I could’ve stayed there with Tom. Are you back in England? We’re celebrating the new years with the Norris&co here and so not looking forward to that. Honestly you should see Frances’ parents what an actual bore they worry more about the kids in Africa than their actual living daughter. Anyways I’m happy that everything is back to normal, even if Ned’s sulkier than usual. Best x

Happy new year!!!!!!!!! How are you??? Did you go out last night??? I diiid. I have a big favour to ask you, but please feel free to say no! I’ve found a new place in MCR to stay, it’s cheaper and I like the area more, but they need me to have everything out of my current flat by Sunday and I can’t get into the new until the week after that… So I’m staying at Joana’s room until then but I need some place to leave my things for a week. You think I could leave them at yours’? Sorry sorry and thank you. Love,
