Sorry about the delay, had to move into my new flat so everything's been a bit mental.
Right, well, it looks like I can get the time off work. So that's good. Still need to book the hostel but for some reason the site isn't showing up (I don't think it's because this is a work computer but I can always try my housemate's being as we haven't set up internet in our new flat yet and my computer only infrequently picks up internet from elsewhere).
I'll be staying over the Thursday night too then heading back to my parents in the morning (I have to make cake there before we drive up to my nanna's in the evening for her big birthday weekend.
Someone meeting me at the station would be very nice. :D I've only been to London a few times before and never alone. It'll be some point during the day on Tuesday, probably earlier.
As to organising some sort of activity ... um, what I'm best at (thanks to three years hard service in the Cardiff Uni Harry Potter society) is silly games. Does it have to be diehard Snupin-related or can we do HP consequences/charades/Whose Line Is It Anyway-inspired games? I've got a general load of those up my sleeves, believe me. Sensible discussion isn't quite my forte... (or there's always the fic game the HP soc seem to enjoy - I have a magic box of words that everyone picks three of and then have to write something with. This being HP soc it also contains things like 'stopwatch', 'avant garde' and 'continuum' but they can always be fished out.)
