Gatwick is a much easier airport than Heathrow, recovering from the flight and all I have to say. I did arrive nice and early - which always helps - and am now

, so will have to ask that they get thrown away - . My other concern is the limited length of time (how sad was I? Worrying about getting back before I've even gone out??!!) The Friday will be a wash-out, what with t recovering from the flight and all, and that only leaves Saturday and Will there be delays? Will I get through security?
