Warner Bros Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter – Review

I LOVE Harry Potter. I read Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone back in 2001, soon after I’d had my eldest. I was hooked from the very first page. I devoured the next three books and then I waited. While I waited for the next book to be published, the very first Harry Potter film was released.

Mummy’s little helper

Getting ready for holiday in our house is a nightmare. Although I’m sure it’s the same for many people, it’s hard for me to explain just how hard my husband works – and therefore how little he’s around to help with things. He gets up at 6, goes to work at 7, comes home at 7 and often goes back to work at 7.45 until about 10 and then carries on working in front of the TV until about midnight. Or sometimes...
