I do like a list, or a plan, or anything project like really. So with only two weeks to go we have a plan. We went round the houses with the possibilities and then the discussion of van hire/storage/shipping, which to be honest we haven't really resolved nor have we worked out exactly how Duncan will get the wardrobe to Folkestone from Darlington, but heh. It will work out, it will change and you know what, that is fine, because as much as I like a plan, I also enjoy a bit of chaos and challenge.
There is much to be done and many people to see, and I get a little tired if I think about it, so I hope we folks understand.
1 - fly in land Heathrow 1615 (clearly the flight times (see fly out time) are why the flight was the cheapest)- stay at mums
2 - up to Folkestone - Dover castle with Dad Shelia, Jane and kids - stay at Dads
3 - day in Folkestone
4 - Canterbury with Dad and Shelia
5 - day with mum
6 - divide and conquer
Adam - gets to Darlington
KT - gets to Birmingham for wedding at 3pm (need somewhere to stay)
7 - KT gets to Ellsmere port
8 - with Di
9 - train up to Darlington - sort stuff out there
10 - drive to The Lakes
11 - at Lakes
12 - back to Darlington
13 - Drive south - stopping at grandads en route - stay Hastings (Jayne or Lizzie)
14 - sort stuff out at Lizzie's - ?meal out with work guys
15 - couple of days in Hastings
21 - flight out - need to be at Heathrow around 6pm - sorry should have thought that flight through a bit better!
At some point between days 17 and 19 we'll get to see and stay with the wonderful Emma, and there is car hire in there somewhere which Adam has totally under control.
I have goodies to bring back for folks, and my reading organised, a wedding outfit (that is warm weather dependent), so almost sorted then.
