Dear Ell
I am sure I can hear you saying good morning when I get up. 
We have spoken since your birthday and I did write ‘happy birthday’ in Greek but forgot to press ‘send’.   I’m afraid I do it a lot – but then I am a lot older than you and need to be forgiven for being a bit dozy at *****.
I just wanted to say good afternoon to you.  
Zoals ooit – met liefde
