Or more accurately, since I really hate London, "Harry Potter, baby!"

I've been meaning to post this for a while and since I have plans for posts for every day up to July, I thought I'd better do this one before I got side-tracked yet again.

It was my sister's 30th birthday on the 7th and we celebrated first by going to Rockcliffe Hall Spa, where we had a very relaxing day of mud baths, cake and wine. I had an Indian Head massage and then fun exploring the spa while my sister and her BFF finished up with their treatments. I haven't had a really good massage in years (with [livejournal.com profile] ditchwitchbitch in Oklahoma), but this one was lovely and she managed to do my whole back as well as my head so I certainly got my money's worth.

On Tuesday we went down to London and were lucky with the weather, because it was the one gorgeous day in a week of rain. We walked from our hotel to Buckingham Palace and then did some shopping, before heading out to dinner and Les Miserables. I'd never seen it before and only knew the barest outline of the plot, so I was pleasantly surprised. It's a fantastic musical. I cried my eyes out and I loved every minute of it.

On Wednesday we went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, which was the thing I've been looking forward to for months. If you're a fan of Harry Potter and ever get the chance to go, do. It was absolutely incredible and they go out of their way to make the whole experience magical for you.

I won't give away too much in case anyone is going, but there are a few photos under the cut.

If anyone would like a holiday card, please comment below with your name & address. Comments are screened.

I'm ignoring my disappointment that this season of Psych sucks by concentrating on the fact that tomorrow is HARRY POTTER DAY! It is going to be awesome. I can feel it in my bones. Tom Felton's interviews and Twitter this week, have made me so happy.

Last weekend I said I was going to post my holiday photos and then the internet went all stupid and my sister went to Sweden meaning most of the best photos (ie, ones I didn't take) I still don't have. I am promised I will have them tomorrow, so lets pretend I said I'd do a holiday post this week instead.

I have to make a fuss about it because my sister and [livejournal.com profile] ditchwitchbitch made sure I had the most amazing time and the best birthday. They deserve all the credit for making me happy.

In other news:

1. Work is going really well. I got some great feedback from a contractor so hopefully that means the people higher up will trust that I know what I'm doing now.

2. My rabbits are crazy, but so adorable. I have built them a run so they have more space outside and they have both come to sit on my knee over the last couple of days. ♥

3. I have gained 100 stars on Guitar Hero, which probably isn't a lot but I'm excited because I'm pretty rubbish at most games, so I often give up easily. I'm enjoying this one though. It doesn't hurt that my band consists of Juliet O'Hara and Draco Malfoy.

4. Speaking of Draco Malfoy and thereby taking a leap into Harry Potter territory, the new Harry Potter film will not be released in 3D. WOO HOO! \o/ More things should not be released in 3D.

5. I won £6.80 on the lottery! Okay, I'm not a millionaire but it's the first thing I've ever won on the lottery, so yay!

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows trailer here. It looks amazing. I can't believe we're this close to the end. I guess I'd better read the book again and try not to cry this time.

Also, because I am some sort of masochist, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo. My fabulous card is below the cut. )

[livejournal.com profile] doublefourtime came to visit me this weekend and we have had three fun days of discussing bandom, harry potter, panic(!), not(!)panic, plotting fics, visiting museums and watching awesome, hilarious, awful TV.

Harry Potter was even better on second viewing. I still can't think of anything to write for [livejournal.com profile] harrypotterbang but I have plenty of time to decide.

I'm not signing up for [livejournal.com profile] bandom_hc because the list of things I have to write seems to be increasing every day. I am looking forward to reading all the fics that come out of it though.

How are you flist? Has everyone had a good weekend?
wednesday_whimsy: (hollyoaks_craig/jp dream)
Just to prove I do think about things that aren't bandom.

I'm going to see Harry Potter on Wednesday. \o/ I'm so excited. I'm hoping I'll get inspiration for my Harry Potter fic. I'm spending my weekend watching all the films so that I'm prepared. Prisoner of Azkaban is still my favourite. I love everything about it.

I also watched Slumdog Millionaire this morning. I had not idea what it was actually about going in, but I thought it was a brilliant film. First rate. :D

Yesterday I spent a lovely few hours with my friend Ishola and her baby son Sean who is now six months and will not stop moving. He's adorable. ♥

I ordered an iPod on Friday. A proper iPod 120GB iPod Classic. It should arrive tomorrow or Tuesday. Eeeeee!

And uh, I'm writing.
wednesday_whimsy: (Default)
See what I did there? No, probably not.

Thoughts and feelings on day two are too long and muddled to be put down here. Other people have said it better here, here and here.

I am sad. It hurts. It will get better. Maybe I'll even be able to write that Disneyland sequel one day. Just not any day soon. I'm staying in bandom. I still have FOB and Cobra and lots of nice friends. I just need to take a step back.

And so I have signed up for the Harry Potter Big Bang. \o/ 15k by November. Piece of cake. Now I just need to think of a plot.

In other news, I finished watching Arrested Development. How could they cancel that show? That awesome, wonderful, ridiculous show. I can't wait for the film.

And, my sister and I are going to see Wicked for my birthday in September. Woo hoo!

EDIT: Also? Torchwood is damn good this season.

Wow, I haven't posted anything since my Big Bang. I shall remedy that by making several utterly pointless posts tonight.

First, I bought my tickets for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. July 15th cannot get here fast enough.

On a slightly related note, Tom Felton and Tom Fletcher (of McFly) continue to flirt like mad with one another on Twitter. I find it rather adorable.

Second, on a completely unrelated note, I've been sick (ish, sort of) since Sunday. Today has been better though. At least the urge to vomit has faded, even if the headache hasn't.

I have spent two days reading the best Harry/Draco, Albus/Scorpius fic I have read in a very long only to find that the last part isn't written. Now I sitting staring longingly at the screen trying to will the final chapter into existence. *cries*

I need a good, long, angsty-with-a-happy-ending, finished fic to make up for it. *sighs*

So I've had a pretty fantastic day.

I woke up early, went to the post office and sent all (bar four) of my Christmas cards and the last of my presents. It cost less than every other year in the last 4 years and yet I sent more than I ever have before. Not that I'm complaining. I went to the bank and got out my money and made sure everything was paid/accounted for.

I was out of the house for 45 minutes.

I finished reading a lovely Spencer/Jon fic.

I watched Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. POA is still my favourite Harry Potter film and book. There is nothing about it I don't love. I could put it on again right now and watch it all and enjoy it all and never be bored. It's just a good film.

I finally managed to make a balloon brontosaurus but his back legs exploded after a minute and he was an amputee for a while before I managed to turn him into a mouse with a large tail.

[livejournal.com profile] hils and I then watched Merlin and Strictly Come Dancing, (not in that order but it's SCD I want to talk about.) I have spent the last hour or so on You Tube watching clips of season 2 because I don't care how good any of the celebs are this year, I don't care how attractive you find Mark Ramprakash and I don't care how good Alesha Dixon was (and she really was,) no one will ever hold a candle to Jill Halfpenny. Cut for major hearteyes )

My bedroom is tidy, the living room is tidy, my laundry is half done, I have wine and tomorrow is Sunday, meaning I have nothing to do but watch two more Harry Potter films.

Life is good today.

OMG I had forgotten just how much I love Harry/Draco. They were my first ever slash OTP and I am now throwing myself into fic with abandon because I have missed them.

I may even have to watch GOF just for Draco's facepalm moment when the dragon is chasing Harry. ♥

I loved it. The End.

I've just checked my flist for the last time until I'm done with the last Harry Potter. I'm going out at 11.45 to queue for my book and then I have tonight and travelling time tomorrow to read as much as I can.

*is excited*

I had a crappy day at work so I'm just going to relax and enjoy my evening. Have fun all!
