I too, am not a phone person. Mum usually calls when I've put the kids down at lunch time. Our house is so small that it wakes them up every time. I've asked her not to call then but she doesn't care as it suits her then. When I think of it I take the phone off the hook. It's always awkward talking to mum anyway as she isn't all that interested in what I have to say and will talk over the top of me with what she already has planned for the phone call.
