Hello all :),
I started to write this post out yesterday but hit the wrong button and lost it all, very annoying.
Anyway, on Thursdays I travel to my nearest Headway which is a few miles away from me and the journey usually consists of a bus ride from my house to the bus station, a ferry trip which is right next to the bus station across Portsmouth harbour and then another bus trip to get to the centre.
Twas a little different yesterday because once I got over to Portsmouth via ferry, I then found the bus station in Portsmouth was fenced in!
This threw me off of my usual routine and I had to go around it a different way. I got to my stop only to find the bus I wanted was not running at that stop no more! So, this is where the 'fiddlers elbow' remark comes in, I had to walk one direction to find out where my bus would turn up, then another direction to get to it.
A little tiring it was but I found out where and got there and home with no qualms.
When I found the bus was not running at my usual stop, I was thinking "Do I need to contact Headway?" But I didn't. I found out how to get there myself so I am proud of that.
If it was a few years back, I wouldn't have had the confidence to do what I acheived.
Like someone once told me, every little thing you acheive is a stepping stone into the right direction :).
Once I got home, I contacted the bus company and asked them if they could notify me if there are any changes at all with the buses in the Portsmouth area.
It would be of great help if they could support me otherwise I could end up doing half a trip over to Portsmouth and find there were no buses running at all for some reason or it was chock a block.
There was one time a few weeks back when the America's cup was in Portsmouth and apparently it was like sardines. Thankfully I was noted the evening before about the America's cup and it would be very busy. I do not like crowds much.
