Dear Ruth,

Thank you very much for the lovely present you sent for Laurie. It was very kind of you. You say in your note that you haven't  got used to 1......................... (be) an aunt yet. I used to 2....................................( think) that being a father would change me. I was wrong, of course. Life will never be the same again. We used to 3.............................( go) to bed at midnight or later. Now we are in bed by ten because we've had to get  used to 4..................................( wake) up at five o' clock. Actually, that's quite good in a way. I always used to 5 .................................... ( arrive) late at the office,  but since Laurie was born my secretary has got used to 6...................................................( find) me hard at work by the time she arrives at the office. Now we are both used to 7.........................................( have) a cup of coffee together by 8.

It hasn't been so easy for Jenny. I think she found it very hard at first, being with the baby instead of going to work. She wasn't used to 8.........................................( spend) all day without adult company. Now she' s used to 9.................................... ( be) at home and she's beginning to enjoy herself.

When are you coming to visit? Hurry up, she's growing so fast!!!

All the best,

Dan
