Today Matthew was going to Grandma's, but not before he had been to his day service. Matthew got up around 08:00. It was also the day that the Bull & Stirrup in Chester re-opens as a JD Wetherspoon pub. He got dressed and had a sausage sandwich and orange juice for breakfast. Just before 09:00 his transport to his day service turned up and it was Shelton Care Group DY08 FFX.
