My dearest all

How are you? I suppose getting excited, looking forward to your holidays. Oh! its so lovely here on the beach, the sun is hot & I think weather is on the change. We are here for a day, left home at 9.30 & return at 7o/c. Well all my love to you. Let us have P.C. when to meet children. Am here with Auntie & Uncle and we have all just finished our lunch. Love Jimmy.
