Not having mobile phones we do everything through the house phone - but there's not a lot to that everything - contacting random companies about issues that come up with products, making hospital appointments (actually there's more of that at the moment) and calls to gossip with my sisters (who don't do email) and friends.

I think the most frequent call we make is to the Chinese to place an order (usually on a Sunday night) for the traditional Return-From-An-Event take away.

Tom actually does have a mobile phone but when he turned it on in case Kate and Malcolm tried to contact us about meeting up at the reenactors Market on Saturday we worked out that the last time he'd used it was the previous year when he switched it on at the same event for the same reason.... and as it turned out we ran into them without needing to resort to mobile 'phone messages or figuring out how to read a text anyway.

Oh yes, I understand the need for food orders. But if we order a delivery, it is usually done online. And — this might be quaint — I rather like the routine of going out to get a carryout in person. (Last night [personal profile] qidane and I went out to get the Chinese, while [personal profile] kateaw sat at home watching TV.)

Our favourite Chinese is sufficiently far away that the food would be stone cold by the time walked back to the house with it. There are closer ones but this is the onbe we like the food from.

I’ll accept that having a car makes collecting hot food decidedly easier.

{GRIN!} We do have a car, but only one driver - Tom - who has usually just got in from a looooong drive back from whatever event we've been to, and has no intention of taking the car out again for at least two days.
