Apologies straight away...a photo heavy blog post and, if you are not a
Harry Potter fan, this may not mean a great deal to you!
As mentioned, for my birthday the boys and I took a trip to
Harry Potter Studios (near Watford).
Elliott and I have been before but it was Mitchell's first trip.
I am huge fan and more so recently as I've been listening to the audio books
expertly read by Stephen Fry. I cannot begin to tell you how many sleepless nights I have
had since Elliott was diagnosed but a good friend recommended audio books to help induce sleep
and I am very thankful. I go to bed each night with Stephen Fry ....reading to me!
So here we go..it's like those times when friends offer to show you their holiday snaps!
The boys in front of the HUGE Christmas tree in the foyer.
A Christmas feast in the Great Hall, fully prepared by house elves.
I want a house elf!!
One table was laden with savoury, the other with sweet...
Ice cream anyone?
Keeping score with the house points.
The door to the entrance of the Chamber of Secrets. Elliott and I.
No 4 Privet Drive in the rain.
An empty Diagon Alley - being on the first tour we had the place to ourselves.
Mitchell captured Elliott and I deep in talk outside Flourish and Blotts!
It's us again!
And again....!! The Hogwarts model - it is incredible.
Finally it is Mitchell! Wearing the Sorting Hat.
And this is Hermione's Bag, during the Deathly Hallows she used an Undetectable
Extension Charm so she could fill the bag with everything needed - clothes, books, a tent!
You can purchase this bag, I must admit I'm really quite partial to it ..although I doubt if
the charm is included, shame - I could do with it for storing all my craft stuff!
I hope you enjoyed all the photos.
I will be back soon to announce the winning number for November's Charity Add-On Kit and,
of course, announcing the news of the special December kit very soon.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend - keep warm and take care friends.
