Walking prompt

We have had our car park rota at work re-arranged to accommodate new staff. I will now get free on site parking for 11 days each month Parking close by is £4.50 per day which is actually way more than i was thinking of paying. Each month is spend, say, 23 days at work so there is to be compromise.

I manage staff in two other locations so I am going to aim to spend six days each month with my other staff. Happily I can claim for parking at the other locations. Sometimes I also have a day of training but not every month.

23 days required
11 days parking
6 days at other locations

Leaves me 6 days a month to sort myself out. Shall I cough up for the £4.50 a day? The only thing which has put me off cycling in the past is the thought of cycling home whilst completely tired out. Same thing with walking. Plus I drop my son off at college every morning except Tuesdays. He could walk but it is five miles and he has to set up really early to get their on time. Good thing is that my other son passes my office every afternoon at 4.30pm and could pick me up in his work van. One further complication is my laptop normally comes and home with me each day and isn't light, I normally use a wheeled bag.

Conclusion - walk to work every Tuesday initially with a laptop backpack and leave early in the afternoon to cadge a free lift home. Consider car sharing, although this hasn't worked well in the past as only the top boss and his secretary live in my direction and they often work madly late. Pay for parking as a last resort.

Consider rolling out walking days for any day when its not necessary to go to another location.
Oh, and remember to clean trainers and charge Ipod.

  1. How long of a walk is it? I am terrible about walking. even walking the dogs makes me whine.

  2. not very far, maybe three miles. I am just being a big girl about it! I told my son that we might be walking but he wasn't impressed as he has just committed to going to the gym every morning at 8am before college starts, so we need to leave home at 7.15, which is pretty much still the middle of the night to me!
