- Hello Grandma! Guess who it is! - I would recognise your voice anywhere Jeanne! How have you been since Christmas? Your mother told me that you were in Toulouse. - Yes, I moved here two weeks ago because I found a new job. - What great news! Toulouse isn't very far from our house, you know. Will you come and visit us? - That's why I'm calling you. I was thinking of coming next weekend, would that work for you? - That would be perfect!
