It's been a busy time recently for me and my humans so I am sorry I have not posted much. Still, that's past us for a day or two and it does mean that I have lots to tell you about.
We have just come home from a tour around parts of the south of England. The first stop was the Warner Bros studio where there is the Harry Potter tour. This means we have more toys in the house. One of them is a large spider.
The humans enjoyed the Harry Potter tour enormously. Mikki was much more a fan of the books but Andrew is much more a fan of the mechanics of theatre and movie-making. The tour gave lots to look at for both interests. Here are a few more examples.
As well as the tables and furniture you can see, there are mannequins wearing costumes from some of the teachers standing at the high table behind us.
This next picture is of something that wasn't used much but I can understand the studio was very keen to display it on the tour - and Andrew was keen to stand in front of it for is picture: the "snake" door from the Chamber of Secrets.
If you are wondering where Mikki was, she was taking these pictures. She also took this one of the set for Professor Dumbledore's office. It was a magnificent set - as I suppose fitted the great wizard himself.
Outside the sound stage, there was lots to see too. Mikki climbed onto the three storey "night bus" and the Hogwarts bridge. Andrew couldn't resist taking a picture of her in "Privet Drive".
There was a whole lot more to see - like the complete "Diagon Alley" - and I may show you more pictures later. There was also a magnificent model of Hogwarts used during the first four films (in the later ones, they had a "virtual" model and did shots of people flying over the castle with CGI). One further huge attraction was a chance to fly a broomstick like the stars (i.e. in front of a green screen).. Of course, my humans did that. Here's Mikki.
