So I finally build up the courage to ring.
I have the international code, the dates of the sub – when I sent it and when they received it from the acknowledgement postcard. Even what I’d say initially.
Frodo and Samwise are distracted by Cbeebies.
Me upstairs with the phone, the pad and a pen.
It rings. They answer…
…but it’s a recording.
The office is shut because it’s Martin Luther King day.
So I have to build up the courage again for tomorrow. *sigh*
