Experiences of new work carpark

Went to work on bike twice this week after receiving permission from on high to park in an un-used corner of the carpark. Unfortunately it's under trees so is covered with moss, has yellow paint markings all over it and is slippery as a slippery thing!

There's also 2 large vehicles (bashed and dented Toyota Hiace people carrier and a Passat) allocated the spaces either side of it which means when I arrive at 8am with nobody about it's fine parking up, but leaving at 4pm it's a struggle to get through the gap which is bike or Helen sized - NOT bike PLUS Helen sized!!! After going nose in on Weds and ending up with pulled arm muscles manoevering him out, I fiddled about getting parked bum in today which looked easier to get out sitting on and padding out but they'd both left by the time I went home so didn't get chance to see. Thought today was supposed to be fine, hence using the bike, but oh no we had a monsoon in Middleton after lunch and heavy drizzle on my way home. Will this rain ever stop??!!
