Thankyou for the lovely meal.

2. FUTURE CONTINUOUS
  To talk about the future we use will.
 
  To talk about actions that are continuing we use the ing form of verbs.
 
We use will with a verb that has the ing ending to talk about things in the future that will happen more than once, or all of the time.
I will be studying all day tomorrow.
This is called the future continuous tense.
ANNE
I’ll be thinking of you all the time.
  She doesn’t say ‘I will think of you’. This means just one time.
Here are more examples of the future continuous.
SARAH
I’ll be expecting a postcard from you Anne, so you’d better send me one.
STEVE
And I’ll be waiting for a postcard too.
ANNE
I’ll be counting the days until you come to Singapore.
counting the days means waiting impatiently
