Quite simply, I am delighted to say that my Drivers' Licence was returned to me today. Hurray!
I am so glad I was able to persist with the sleep apneoa machine, and I now feel I have made friends with it, which is just as well for I fear that I will have to sleep with it for the rest of my nights.
Now I will again be able to do the shopping for the B & B, get to the hairdressers' and occasionally take a trip to a restaurant. I have been so fortunate to have folks willing to drive me around for such a long time, and I want to thank them all.
