She wasn’t going to get one until she was at least in secondary school.
But with her walking home on her own, and in fact wanting a bit more independence all round, it seemed like a good time.
It’s not all singing and dancing. It’s a very basic phone with data switched off. She can phone, text and take pictures.
I can’t begin to explain how excited she was!
I suspect this will become a common sight in the near future…
