It's a Long Way

Just had an e-mail from my son in Australia.

Broken up with his partner, not much work (he's an actor), 50 next year and looking at a total life change, he's quite low.

Times like this you realise that if he was still in Exeter you could go down and share a pint, but it's not that easy when he's that far away!

A very distressing time for you and your son.Re telephone, I pay about £10 a month for a Vonage broadband phone. They send a small box that plugs into the modem, and normal phones / answer phones can be used.They give you a BT style number. I can ring Australia, USA, Canada , Eire, UK, most of Europe for unlimited time any time of the day or night. I keep the BT line for incoming calls as only friends know the Vonage one. No need to have PC switched on.See Vonage

We`talk regularly on the phone, but he's not into VOIP. I'm the technology freak!

He only got his first computer ten years after me, and his first mobile just a couple of years ago!

Thanks for all the suggestions and thoughts though.

Like they say, it's the first fifty years of parenthood are the most worrying!
