Thank you for the colour by numbers set. That is really kind.

Dear Uncle Ian,

I’ve just written one to a school of children in Stoke on Trent who sent me a stack of letters. They’ve been studying SHRUNK! this term and they’ve been to visit to model village.

They’re definitely worth a thank you letter.
