    I travel 20 minutes from DD's school to my work, her school is 10 minutes from home, so 30 minutes from home to work.

    It takes me about an hour after dropping DD off at daycare. I only work 2 days a week and I go against the traffic as I live near the city and work away from the city. I couldn't do it everyday.

    DF atm is only about 15mins from work but he works all over the place so sometimes it can be over an hour.

    The issue we are having atm is i am travelling 50 minutes each way to work but will be finishing up in around 2 months. We are looking to move out of brissy but this means DH will be travelling an hour each way to work. Argh. In my head thats alot. But it seems common enough and people survive it....

    I selected more than one hour which isn't quite true yet (but will be in 2-weeks time).

    Currently it takes me 30mins by bus into town, however I'm moving house and soon it will take just over an hour by bus.
