I can’t bear to look at another deck of cards again, and yet I can’t tear myself away from them! The situation is hopeless. But you shouldn’t think that I spend all my time at solitaire; sometimes I knit scarves. I’ve even finished one.
Every day after our tea Felix' Papa reads the newspapers out loud. What a bore! Particularly as he always manages to skip the most interesting parts.
Dear Grandmother! I'm sorry I still haven't carried out my promise and haven't written to you. Our life here is quiet and calm. Felix's mother and father still fight from time to time, which is rather amusing. Felix himself caught a cold and spends his days in bed, which is rather boring. The candies you gave me are very tasty, I keep eating them all the time.
