Just come back from abroad to find my bill for 13 texts and 3 mins of calls is £33! A bit shocked as I didn't expect the charges to be this high. I didn't get a welcome text on arrival in country, if I had I wouldn't have used the phone at all at these prices. Anyone had similar?

That seems excessive even for the most expensive zone:
Zone 8 Rest of World (exceptional) Bahamas, Benin, Cape Verde, Chad, Congo, Cuba, Djibouti, Falkland Islands, Kuwait, Laos, Maldives, Mongolia, Palau, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan Make Call Receive Call Text £2.50 £2.50 £1.00
where it would cost about £20.50.

What country was it? As @XRaySpeX says it doesn't look right

Falkland Islands. I think because they were short calls they all added up. I would have presumed you got charged part of the minute so a 1 min 1 sec call would cost say £2.60 not £5.
You live and learn but I wish I had received the welcome text.

You are charged to the next min. on calls. So if you had 3 calls of just over 1 min. each your total would be £28, closer to the amount you were billed.
