A heartfelt thank you to the kind gentleman who came to my aid at the Tesco service station Tuesday mid-morning when my car battery died.

I had the jump leads but he knew how to use them!

He also recommended a supplier for a replacement battery, and if he's reading this, I was very pleased to use his advice later.

Thank you too to the young lady from Tesco who pushed me and the car to a safer, out-of-the-way spot. I was impressed!

(I've not previously appreciated ANY advantage in being a white-haired older lady! Thank you both.)
