If your a regular reader of my blog you will remember that my older son got a job in August 2008 after being un-employed for 9 months.
This job is at the Bircham Newton Construction College a good 12 miles from where we live.
The only way for him to get to work was to cycle ,so that a 25 mile round trip.
Thankfully he was already very fit so the cycling was not a problem for him.
I have worked out he has now cycled at least 2000 miles in all weathers and never once complained.
That 2000 miles does not include any over time either.
NOW I think the time has come to encourage him to take his driving test again which is proving to be a hard task.
Even though I kept my red Clio for him when I got my new car.
It seems that as he is only contracted to work part time he is worried he will not be able to afford to run a car.
After looking into insurance for him I can see why he is worried BUT he really needs to be driving.
So when we return from our holiday I will book a test for him then he has no choice 🙂
