Hello,

I have no idea how to start.  I’m just sat in front of my computer hoping that I’ll be able to find the appropreate way to say the things I want to say.  I guess this is one time when the well practiced English skills have deserted me.  Starting’s always the most difficult thing to do in letters and E-mails.  Once you have the start the rest should just come out of thin air.  But I’m a paragraph in and still have no idea how to say it.
