So my boy started school last September, since then due to my wife starting work at 7.30 we have booked the boy into a breakfast club at a cost of £6-£12 per morning. This started to completely wipe us out financially after the first couple of months and as the boy is pretty good on his bike and schools not far away I decided to start cycling with him to get him to school for 8.45 and then hop on my bike for a 5 mile sprint to get myself in before 9am. The first couple of trips I arrived at work at 9.02am which resulted in my boss not being happy but after working out a few shortcuts I can now get there for bang on 9am. The company I work for participates in the cycle to work scheme so I was hoping that they may be a little more understanding on days when there's likely to be black ice... But apparently not. Does anybody else experience this from their employer? Any advice?
