How wonderful to hear from you again! Has it really been just four months since I filled out a 75-page form and paid the princely sum of £820 for the privilege of remaining in the country where I work, own a home and where the man I love resides? And now I learn that because the country in which I happened to have been born required me to renew my passport, you need my financial assistance again. I had no idea it was so costly to transfer a visa from one piece of paper to another, or that such a complex endeavour required the completion of yet another 15-page epistle. I hope my £165 donation is sufficient to cover the expense. Also, that the visa is made of platinum and framed in precious stones.
Helpfully yours forever,
