I saw this in the paper and thought it was a joke! I just hope that my 6 (almost 7) year old doesn't see it as it will bring renewed pleading for a mobile phone of which she has no chance of getting! xxx

I think 6/7 is too young to have a phone. Cna you imagine if you gave her one, what will she be asking for in 3 years time??? I think this is one argument you have won, she might not know it yet!! She will be disappointed when its her birthday and she doesnt get one, but Im sure she will be pleased with what she does get!!

She knows that there is no chance of her getting a mobile but she is so used to getting her own way with Daddy she keeps trying - not knowing Daddy knows Mummy will castrate him if he even thinks about getting her one! lol She always appreciates presents we get her - she isn't really as bad as I make out! xxx

Well Tesco gave away a stainless steel chef's spiral cutter (whatever that is) today at their store in Salisbury. Thought that you'd be be excited. I didn't get one. Whilst everyone else rushed of to listen to the 'Store Representative" I made a beeline for the till and got out ahead of all the Mummies and their horrid screaming children.
