Subject: Winter/spring sun
My wife and I feel we’ve earned ourselves a break in the sun. Have you any special deals for a self-catering holiday in, say, Spain or Portugal? We’re not too keen on hotels – too many people! And we don’t want to travel too far.

Subject: Lunch?

Lunch would be great. Let’s make it next Friday. Perhaps we can have an old-style City get-together – port and all. You’d better get a lift to the station that day. Anyone else you’d like me to invite?

I know I said that we were putting any attempts to change the management of the firm on hold, but I’ve learned that Steve Hart may be looking to move. What do you think he’s up to? If you can make lunch in the City next week I’ll return your hospitality and introduce you to a good friend who is very much in the picture.

Hi stranger. Sorry not to have been in contact, but you wouldn’t believe what’s been happening. We need some help getting press coverage. How are you placed for taking on a job?

Many thanks for the invitation. I am very tempted to go for the whole four days. It does rather depend upon Liz letting me off the leash, though. Any chance you can find a pass for the whole Festival for me?
