I'm driving home from the supermarket when my mobile phone rings. I let it go to voicemail. At home I check my message and it's from Mum. She has started talking well before the beep, so I miss some detail but can pick up that she urgently needs me to call her.
"Hi Mum. You left a message?"
"I got this note today and it says, 'Don't do anything with Car Tax. Wait for G to come visit' "
"MUM, you didn't just get that note. You WROTE that note yesterday. I got you to write it!"
"Oh.... er... yes, I know that.. er... but next to it was this envelope which says, 'Renew your Car Tax online....etc'"
And Mum proceeds to read out the same letter she read to me 16 times yesterday.
