Today Matthew was in respite and he was going to his day service. Matthew got up around 08:00 and had toast for breakfast. Recently the respite place has had new windows, and they are still carrying out refurbishments inside the building. Whilst waiting for his transport we were looking out of the window to see what other buses appeared to take other service users out for the day. One bus that turned up was Stanton's of Stoke minibus CN09 CJE.
