I like using email.
I use email to keep in touch with my family and my friends, who I don’t see very often – because they live away. It’s good to know what they are up to, and what they’ve been doing, and I like to see pictures of what they’ve been doing and where they’ve been (like where they’ve been on holiday.
My family and friends can’t always find the time to come and visit me, because of how far apart we are, so it’s good to know that they’re doing okay and that they’re still thinking of my – sending me emails asking how I am and what I’ve been up to.
I like using emails, because it saves my family and friends a lot of time, because they don’t have to come and see me – because they tell me they’re alright. I also like using email because I feel like I’m not bothering people who I email, because they don’t always feel like they need to come and see me, if they’re busy.
