Country Cottage Holidays Dear Mr Jefferies, I was most interested by in your advertisement in “The Herald” and I am writing to obtain further information about your country cottage holidays. In particular, I would like to know in which parts of the country your cottages are located as my friends and I are interested in staying as far away from large cities as possible. I would also like to know if it would be possible to rent a cottage for six people for up to six months and whether pets are allowed as my friends and I have three well-behaved dogs we are planning to take with us. I should therefore be most/extremely/terribly grateful if you would send me full details of your larger more isolated cottages and any brochures you may have. Thanking you in advance for your help. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Yours sincerely Sandy Melville SANDY MELVILLE

  17. 17. Worksheet 12 When my mother finally became too old to live alone, we decided that she should stay with us in town. I was surprised at/by the amount of furniture she had, but there was no room/space in our flat to store it, so we had to leave it in her house. I always intended to clear it out and sell the place, but somehow I kept putting it off. One night I woke suddenly at four o’clock almost in tears. I was extremely upset by a dream in which I saw two men break a window, climb into my mother’s house, and start to take her belongings. Then the burglars must have heard someone’s voice outside or a door being closed, because they dropped what(ever)/everything they were carrying and left in a hurry. The dream made me feel very guilty that I had not taken better care of the house. Later that morning I received a phone call from a lady who lived next door to the house. To my astonishment, she told me that it had been broken into during the night. Fortunately, something must have disturbed the burglars because they left without taking anything. I didn’t use to believe in the supernatural, but now I’m not so sure!
