Hi ‘Fulanito’,

I hope you’ve  had a good start to the week.

FYI there’s a board meeting at 4 p.m today so I’m going to need you to set up the meeting room ASAP and confirm the number of attendants with reception so we can order the exact number of chocolate muffins. TBH I haven’t prepared my presentation at all so I might need you to give me a hand with that too!

BTW, regarding the event this week, it’s still TBC whether it will be held here in London or if we will be renting the castle in Oxford as we did last year. I hope to have the final answer from our CEO before COB today.

I almost forgot to tell you! The coffee machine is OOO, so don’t even try to use it unless you want to drink dirty water. 

I’m just going to pop to the loo. BRB!
