A Happy Elf Birthday to…….?

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear…….I have failed! I have not written a single illustrated letter for 10 whole days, and I beg your forgiveness. You see it was like this; I’ve just worked a seven day shift at the museum, its half term and we have been getting 700 to 800 visitors EACH DAY. Running up and down seven flights of stairs and chatting to hundreds of lovely people took its toll. Each night I got home, had dinner and then promptly fell asleep on the sofa.

But, now I’m on holiday. Yipee! And yesterday was my birthday. Hooray! So I’m in a celebratory mood. And what better way to start than with a Birthday Elf. You will see below the start of an illustrated letter, but who is it going to? If it’s your birthday or you know someone whose birthday is coming up how about an original Ziggy Elf? I will send it with birthday wishes to the first person to email me their postal address to ziggy dot shortcrust at gmail dot com headed “birthday elf”.  But don’t worry, if you’re not first, I promise I’ll still write to you. Yes, everyone is a winner with Ziggy.
