A Friend who is House-sitting

by Michelle Ozojie
(Abuja, Nigeria)

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.

Dear Mirabel,

I appreciate your acceptance to look after my house this December when I travel to Enugu.

My house is a four-bedroom duplex with an outdoor swimming pool at the back and a rose garden at the left side of the building. I have a housekeeper that comes twice a week and my gardener stays just down the street so, you don't need to worry about cleaning the house or the roses. The pantry is stocked so you don't need to bother about grocery shopping except for an occasional fresh supply of meat. And I live just two blocks away from the store.

The only thing I would like you to do is to feed my cat and take him to the vet every Wednesday. You will see his food at the bottom drawer of the kitchen cabinet.

Anyway, I have to go now. I will give you a phone call before I leave. Thank you once again for doing this.

All the best,

Dear Sheddy
I am really grateful to you for obliging to my request of staying in my house while I'm away. I'll be going to Lagos by the end of the month.
My house is a bungalow located at No. 4 Davis Close off Cliff Road. It is the second building you will see on your left when you enter the close and its painted Cream with a Black roof and a Black gate as well. You will see my Silver Toyota Camry Car parked by the left side of the house in the parking lot.
Please I'd like you to help warm my car at least 4 times in a week and also help me pay for the security dues when the neighbourhood watch come asking for it. I left some money and the car keys in the drawer just beside the Television.
I trust you will will be comfortable until my return.
Lots of Love.
