Write a letter to your friend. In your letter

- give instructions about how to care for your pet
- describe other household duties
Write at least 150 words.
You do NOT need to write any addresses.
Begin your letter as follows:
Dear ...., Balia

I am very happy that you have agreed to look after my house and pet while am away for two weeks.

My flight as been scheduled for on the 8 of March. I would like you to come and live in my house while I am away.

In the case of emergency you can send be a message via yahoo or you can even ring my cousin Faith on 0049755478 whose house I will be staying.

My dog fail from the tree two days ago and broke his right leg, so it need to take his medicine every day after lunch, you will find the medicine on the dining table . Please it needs to take his shower once a week.

You can make use of the kitchen to prepare food for yourself and my dog, please avoid giving it lots of food the doctor said it is not good for it health. At night it drinks milk before going to bed..

It needs to be taking out for a work every morning for at least an hour. if possible please do not play music at night otherwise there would be complains from my neighbors.

The most important thing is paying my electricity bill for the month of March. There is some money and the electricity bill on top of the fridge in the kitchen.

Thank you very much for willing to help me
Best regards

... don't you thank this person for undertaking such great responsibilities? :D
I am so glad that you agreed to look after my pet and the house while I am away and thank you so much for that. You indeed are a great friend.

... tell him the return date too;

As planned, I will be leaving on the 3rd March and be back on the 5th April. I have cleaned up the house and made all arrangements for you to have a comfortable stay in my house during my absence. In any emergency, you may ring me on 0049755478. This is the number of my cousin, Faith with whom I will be staying.

Good advice by Pahan. Yes, you need to quickly set up the mood of the letter. Here you are asking for a help and therefore you need to show that you are obliged to the other person for offering you a helping hand.

You can make use of the kitchen to prepare food for yourself and my dog, please avoid giving it lots of food the doctor said it is not good for it health. At night it drinks milk before going to bed..

I have stored provisions in the kitchen for you to make use of when cooking meals for yourself and my dog. The dog food should be pretty lite as per the doctors advice and it can survive with a bottle of milk only at nights.

here, it is not a problem if you put it/ his to change the word 'dog/my dog'
but, pay more attention to be consistent, if at first you use 'it', so you should use this word in all parts of your essay, don't change by word 'his/ him'
