Harry Potter and the Order of the Duvet

I need a duvet day. Following a marathon four and a half hours of Harry Potter excitement at Borders bookshop in Edinburgh last night I am rather tired today! Miss Lucy and Mr Adam had so much fun I can't tell you - and Adam won not one but two first prizes, one of which he very kindly gave to his sister (a gift token which she prompty spent there and then!). There was dancing, Top Trumps tournaments and quizzes galore - not to mention free samples of various drink concoctions from Starbucks. I forced myself to partake of blueberry swirl cheesecake and a coffee caramel frappucinno - pretty decent of me I thought. All the staff were dressed up as the various characters from the books and they were great with the kids. We finally got home around midnight by which time the frenzy of buying the new Potter book would be fully underway in the bookshop. We had ours on order from Amazon however and it duly arrived today. I haven't read a word of it as yet - I'm working my way through another book at the moment and I don't want to cross contaminate!
Off for a lie down now (I really hope Hagrid will be okay.........).

Well Dad and I went too!!! We got home about 1 am... It was fab - such cuties in their costumes!!! One of our family friends works there and was in costume too!! (although more Rocky horror than Harry Potter I thought!)

I'm up to chapter ten... trying to limit myself - but... I sense that will not last too long!!!!

A good time was had by all then. I'm lagging behind I've still not finished Order of the Phoenix and need to get a copy of the Half Blood Prince before I can even think of reading the last book. I'm hoping I don't hear from anyone what happens.

blueberry swirl cheesecake and a caramel whatsit frappacino, eh? how self-sacrificing of you. The things we do for our kids, honestly...
