I rang the breakdown people who sent someone out to have a look. It turned out that the car battery was kaput. The chap managed to jump start the car and suggested I take it to get a new battery, which is exactly what I did.
Unfortunately the shop that I got the replacement battery from didn't fit them so I found myself with an impromptu afternoon off in order to change the battery. Luckily the rain that had started just as we'd got the car going, stopped so I was able to do this little task while it was dry.
But I didn't mind. It could have been pouring down with rain and I'd have been happy.
When I got home I found a letter for me on the couch. One look at the envelope and I knew who it was from and what was inside it. On the envelope was the word Southmead. The place in Bristol where the Laurels sends us for our second opinions.
Carefully opening the I found a letter inviting me to an appointment with Dr Dan for my second opinion. Its still a while away, Ash Wednesday in fact. Not only will Lent be starting but I will be starting the next part of my journey to finally being physically myself.
Just waiting to go further around the clock.
