Yay telescope! Hope your backyard is dark enough.

Not businesslike enough; too much emotion is in there. A simple "I received the coat and card" is all you need. Don't get into gratitude, sentiment and certainly not regret at how you are spending the day! Now it sounds like you want to get back together with her. She'll jump all over that.

ex responded to my mail.
"You are welcome NAME
By the way i also like surprises :P
With Regards,
See, she's already wheedling to get a comparable gift from you in return! Don't fall for it! Strictly business! No reciprocation! I know it's hard because you once loved her, but remember, now she's just manipulating you to get what she wants.

Sure, there was no conflict in that exchange, but you're still falling for her tricks.
