I’m looking, forward to seeing you at my party.
As the school year is coming to an end. I’m giving a farewell party before we go away for holiday. Would you like to come? It will be held at my home at 7 p.m this coming Sunday. I intend to invite about 10 people, so it will be a small gathering. I will order some pizzas and buy snacks and fruits. There will be dancing and karaoke competition, so there will be a lot of fun.
Please let me know if you can come. Just leave me a message on the phone if you can’t catch me at home.
