With Covid the owners are requiring extra time to clean up after the previous visitors and so we can't be in until 5pm.
On the way up we will be calling in at Claire's sister's house in Suffolk.
With it being a Friday it's the worst day for getting through the Dartford Crossing. Leaving after rush hour gives us time to get through and maybe have some stops on the way up.
