I know I'm probably being unreasonable but I thought I'd double check.
We only have one car between us. My weekend job is 15 minutes away in the car. Dp has taken to taking me and picking me up from work on the weekends so he can have the car to take the kids out.
This is fine in principle I know it makes sense for him to use it rather than it left in the car park all day. Why is it really pissing me off? That time driving to and from work was my time to be alone and have some headspace before being on parent duty again and now its been taken away. I know I'm being unreasonable but argh!

YANBU. I feel your pain. We used to have this arrangement. It wasn't too bad in the morning but there is very little down time in my job and by the end of the day, I just wanted some peace. DH was working alone all day and wanted to talk about roof tiles.

I'm without the car all week while he's in work looking after the Dc's he doesn't seem to mind about that.
'Dear, I love this new idea of the one at home taking the other to work so that they an have the car during the day instead of it sitting in a car park, what time are we leaving tomorrow morning?'

But then the op would have to get up early and put up with driving/traffic
It's a clear enough one op. You're being unreasonable.
But it's just one of those irrational petty feelings we all get from time to time. Once you don't make an issue of it, it can just remain as one of those things that we all let ourselves get irrationally annoyed by.
