Rowena. She just wants to make a phone call.

Poor Rowena is getting on a bit. She’s also rather bad-tempered, especially when she wants to call ‘her Colin’ and the phone doesn’t work. Strange, because someone already came to fix it.

And she can’t even call the repair man because – you guessed it – the phone doesn’t work.

But then someone else turns up and his solution is sensitive and unique. He doesn’t patronise her like the others. I love the idea, but you’ll have to listen to find out what he does. Tea and a Garibaldi anyone?
