My Cardio plan whilst bulking?

I know there's a cardio session, but this is aimed more around bulking and keeping lean so I think it fits in here.
 
As I've mentioned before, I'm getting a bit fat on this bulk and it's a long time til I cut next spring so I need to get on top of things.
 
The diet needs cleaning up for sure, but my will power is no good when it comes to eating.  So I need to get plenty of cardio back in the routine so I can still enjoy my food.
 
I'm a fan of morning SSCV and do a light 40 minute jog at the minute.  Now my wife has gone back to work 2 days a week and I have to help get the little one ready so I can only make 3 mornings a week.
Couple that with trips to London with work, bad weather, bad nights sleep or general lazyness..... I sometimes end up only doing 1 or 2 mornings.  So I need to fit some cardio in the evenings to make up for it.
 
It'll be about 8.30pm - 9pm when I get chance to do it, so I'm thinking of doing some HIIT to keep it short.  I'll be fully fuelled as I will have eaten about 7pm.  It'll do done outdoors so some kind of lamp post sprinting.
 
So..... my questions -
 
Does this sound ok? 
 
HIIT so late at night?? 
 
And I was thinking of just having a shake after the HIIT?
 
I have to do something because the mornings aren't consistant enough.

    I like HIIT in the evenings!  When i have eaten around an hour before I find it to be very beneficial if your short on time.  I found a 20-30minute HIIT session outside on a local football ground helped my fitness a lot, you wont know until you try, just do it with sufficient feed around to prevent catabolism.

    Sounds cool.

    Doing it in the evening is a lot better than not doing it in the morning.
