Hello there, I need to translate into English this sentence: "Mi sono decisa a scriverle, finalmente. Anzitutto, felice anno nuovo! (In ritardo, lo so, ma gli auguri fanno sempre comodo)." Is it correct if I say "I finally made up my mind and wrote to you. First of all, Happy New Year! (Late, I know, but best wishes are always helpful)" Should I say "are always useful/come in handy" instead of helpful? Thanks in advance!
