Surely it can’t be four years already?

When every waking hour becomes a working hour, struggling to find yet more global opportunities for astonishing price reductions on international phone calls for the good folk of Britain, time does indeed tend to fly.

Only last night I was jotting down a few target countries that we hadn’t cut the call rates to for a while (see below) in the margin of my Daily Telegraph, a glass of dry sherry at my side (Tesco Finest Albanian) when my cogitations were interrupted by the distinctive (and somewhat frightening) sound of Mrs J’s snoring alerting me to the fact that it was way past a normal person’s hour for retiring.

(Mrs J’s snoring is once heard, never forgotten. Somewhere between a jumbo jet with a full load taking off in a hurry and a hippopotamus bemoaning the death of its favourite mate. I had an awful battle just before Xmas trying to calm down our neighbour who complained to the council that we were keeping wild animals in cruel and inhumane conditions.)

So I have no argument in the time moving like an arrow stakes. But even the James brain, size XL, can barely compute that four years have passed since the last time the entire nation was united in that bizarre display of mass English hysteria called The World Cup.

It seems barely days since the mournful cry of England’s followers could be heard from every pub window: Come On England, Come On England. How strangely sad it always sounds. A poignant mixture of despair and hope, I suppose.

But, nevertheless, love it or loathe it, TWC is here again. And, to be honest, anything that makes my customers think of telephoning their chums around the globe is all right by me.

So if you’re enjoying Holland v Australia next Wednesday, say, and think “By jove, haven’t had a chinwag with me old mate Annie from Amsterdam for yonks..” you’ll need to know that, with Cherry Call you can call her on her mobile for only 2p a minute. Do the same with BT and it’ll cost you 49p for the very same 60 seconds!

And with Cherry Call you can talk to Annie for as long as you want, at any time, on any day.

Here’s a few of this week’s price cuts. I’d love to show them all but I seem to have run out of space somehow. But naturally they’re all on the main Cherry Call website HERE.
