The Gorse Fox is not known for his use of the telephone. He finds telephones interesting, but always has trouble thinking of things to say or questions to ask. It's probably a man-thing, or maybe a by product of the endless hours spent on teleconference calls achieving absolutely nothing when he was still working.
Despite this, the afternoon has been punctuated with joy as Cousteau-Cub phoned for a chat and the Gorse Fox noted it is only 60 days until she is back here for a visit. After that he called Beloved Aunt in Canada. She has been quite unwell, but is clearly rallying. We had a lovely chat and it was a chance for her to catch up on all of the news regarding Urban-Cub and Ellie.
