I'm considering what will be for me a long distance year long contract from Manchester to Chester of 48 miles. I have the option to work from home one day a week after the first 2 weeks on site full time. Google maps gives me an estimated time of 55 minutes in normal traffic. Is this do-able on a daily basis? The train isn't an option as I'd have to make 2 changes and a one and a half hour journey. Has anyone done a similar journey and remained relatively sane?
