One of the boys in the group was able to light a fire and we proceeded to prepare a meal. However, as we (A5) ... the mushrooms, they (A6) ... fire.

He (A5) ... a few family dramas to deal with recently. Apparently his dad has been laid off from the bank where he worked and his sister (A6) ... out of the university so they're both at home feeling miserable.

Hi, Tom!

The holidays have arrived again! It doesn't seem like a year since the last summer break, but in a few days we'll finish school for six weeks! I'm not sure what I'm going to do this year. Last year I did a summer job. I (A1) ... out my dad in his office when he asked me if I wanted to get paid for it! It was only two mornings a week, but it (A2) ... me some money to spend. How about you? (A3) ... to go away anywhere this summer? I (A4) ... by some friends to go on a sailing holiday and I think I will go. I love sailing. One reason I (A5) ... to you is to ask if you would like to come and stay for a weekend. If you (A6) ... at the end of August, we will go to the music festival in the park. I'm not sure if Lily Allen will be there this year, though. Write and tell me soon because there (A7) ... many tickets... .
