Here I am at King's Cross Station looking at Platform 9 3/4 . . . I was so excited! And please note that there were NO KIDS there at all, the only people milling around taking pictures were adults my age and older. ;o) And see the flowers that Adam surprised me with at the airport?
My flight was pretty awful, I've never been on a more uptight flight in my life. And the guy next to me smelled bad, and I couldn't fall asleep, and then we landed late and the line at customs was huge. But it's ok, cuz now I'm here with my boyfriend and we're gonna have a great time! I already ate chips, went to one store where they sell yarn (there aren't LYSs here, it's more like department stores and sewing stores that also sell yarn), and toured the Cambridge campus, which is stunning.
I'll be getting lots of knitting done on this trip, I can already tell! Adam still has some work to do before the week is over, and everything closes early, so we watch DVDs at night and I can knit. I have the Dream sweater body almost done, and am already dreaming of a new project.
We'll be going to London for a day later this week, and next week we may go to Barcelona for a few days. I'll post more pictures when I get a chance!
PS - new Special of the Week is up on the String website.
