Re the Winter Holiday timeline, the quarantine period is "near a month" or "Twenty-eight days the doctor says" (WH9).

There are three references to their original return day: "There’s another week yet" (Peggy, WH3),"Only three more days" (Dot, WH6), "going back .. in three days time, day after tomorrow is our last day" (Peggy to the Doctor, WH8).

There are several chapters which cover two days (To Spitzbergen by Ice, Days in the Fram) and some which could be three or more days: Doing without Nancy, Sailing Sledge, The uses of an Uncle.

We have two dates from the cache: 28 January and 10 February (WH24,27)

So the trick is to adjust the number of days in some of the chapters; see the Ransome wikia below.
