I've had my first phone call!

On my mobile!

I've just come back from Sainsburys and was reading blog comments, while waiting for the kettle to boil, when a strange sound started. At first I thought Welshcakes - as it was her comment I was reading - had managed to attach music to her comment, and I was very impressed, but then I noticed it was coming from behind me. From my handbag in fact.

After staring at it for a moment I realised it was probably my phone!

I got it out and continued my impression of a goldfish. Okay, it was definitely the phone ringing but what did I do now? Green usually means go so I pressed that and said, tentatively, 'Hello?'
'Hello, mum, what do you want?' It was Younger Son.
'What do I want? I don't want anything; you phoned me.'
'Because you just phoned me.'
'No, I didn't.'
He sighed. 'You haven't got the key lock on, have you?'
'How do I do that?'
I don't know without looking at your phone.'
'Okay. I'll come up now.'
'Where are you?'
'Downstairs.'

For some reason this made Younger Son and his friends, who were with him, laugh even more.

I wonder who else I've phoned unknowingly.

Back on the Christmas card front, we had a card again this year, with love and prayers, from Jack and Betty. They don't seem to mind that I don't send them one.

If I knew who they were, I would.
