Dear Ammy, It’s great to know that Shahi has turned 8, loads of blessings for her. I would like to thank you for the
invitation, but
invitation but
my bad that I have an appointment at the passport office on the same day. So I won’t be able to join you
time. Let me discuss more in
regard, as you know I had switched my job recently. There’s good news that I need to fly abroad for a client meeting for the
time for the new organization. But my passport was about to expire and so I must get it extended on priority basis. It would have been exciting to be there in Shahi’s birthday, she is a big girl now. Please accept my apologies for
time. As I will be missing her birthday, could we plan to meet on the
weekend of the
month? We can have fun together and obviously I would want to meet her and make up for missing her birthday
she is going to be upset for me like forever. Let me know your availability on
or we can plan mutually somewhere near Holi holidays. Your’s friend Amandeep
