So she may have wanted a Barbie camera, pink Nintendo DS or Bendaroos, but my daughter has just turned six, and in this house that means you get your own set of stainless steel, ash-handled child-sized garden tools - whether you want them or not.

Could this be the worst present ever given?

As a back up, I did also buy her some fairy wings - just in case she starts crying...

I expect she will probably make a tent out of them,including your best bed linnen,and trample in the mud.....!No really lucky girl! hope she got a great bit of garden all of her own too!!

That's the next stage to the plan.  In the meantime I'm trying to encourage her not to attack her brothers with them...
