    Are they talking? Or is it just silence? If silence it could be outbound call centres. It happens to me every now and then from a private number. They have those machines that just call and then if the call connects it takes a while for a person to take over.

    Happens to me all the time too. It's super annoying.

    Thank you! As a volunteer family what you have done means a lot.

    My brother is a volunteer as well and I think that was the trigger. $5 isn't much but it is a tray of water at least.

    They rang yesterday on the landline and asked for my name (mum answered) and when I went over they'd hung up, and today the same thing but before I could answer they hung up then immediately rang my mobile then when I answered there was silence and then they disconnected.
    They're playing silly buggers with me.

    I don't have a whistle on hand either but I wouldn't want to provoke them anymore that they take it further?!?

    Fiery, I am not sure if you are with Telstra but if you are you can contact the unwelcome calls team, they can find the person even if they have a private number and block them from calling you. I used to work along side the team in Perth and they are all really helpful. The number is 1800 805 996 (I hope it is ok to put here) I hope this helps you :-)

    Thanks I'll give them a call if it keeps continuing. I am with Telstra.

    Getting nervous about flying to Sydney on Wednesday with a 6 and a half month old, on the way to the NSW Central Coast to spend Christmas with DH's family.

    Disappointed. Dd2 has a art piece going on display at our local art gallery today as part of the young artist awards. This afternoon they are announcing the winners. We were supposed to be going. She jumped awarkardly and has hurt her ankle. I am tossing up whether to take her to hospital for a X ray or just RICE it.
