Fat Sister’s a hospital doctor and at this stage in her career she has little control over where she works. In August she was due to start a new job, which would’ve involved her living outside of London most of the time because it was so far away. This was a big worry because even though she works long hours and already commutes quite a distance, having her nearby is important for me. Fat Sister and King Russell frequently cover the gaps in my support rota, often at very short notice.
She appealed to her employers and explained our circumstances. Today she got the news we’d both hoped for – a new job that’s much closer and within commuting distance from London. So I’ll still see her as much as I do now and she’ll still be able to give me support when I urgently need it.
