Day 3 of our London odyssey began with a very frustrated me trying to wake up a very jet-lagged teen. Anna couldn't fall asleep on Friday night, and was up till nearly four a.m. Consequently, she resisted every attempt to get up at nine, nine-thirty, and ten, and finally by 10:30, I gave up and went across the street to King's Cross to do some shopping without her.
Once at King's Cross, I found what I'd been looking for since the night before: The Platform 9 3/4 Harry Potter Shop! We'd wandered in on Friday night briefly (just before they closed) and the place was packed. I saw one of the store workers walking around with the world's most adorable plush Dobby on his shoulder, but alas, they were sold out and he wouldn't sell me that one. Check him out!
