It worked! But I gave her three presents that year:

First was a stuffed fluffy toy Penguin. This confused her.

Then an Airfix model of a spitfire. This really puzzled her, especially when I told her it wasn't for her - it was for the penguin.

Then the flying lessons.

Her father was in the RAF in WW2, but wasn't allowed to fly because of his eyesight being too poor - such people were known as a Penguins. And what happens if you give a Penguin a plane? He can fly. And so did she...
She still has the penguin, now called "Leslie" after her father Leslie John, on her computer desk.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
