Nice Weekend

I had a very nice weekend. I knitted, ate snacks, watched TV or played games and rested. It was very refreshing. I didn't once pick up my school books. I did look at them a couple times, feeling guilty that I wasn't hard at them but it did feel good to take a break. I almost have Ingrid's package done. I am just waiting for my handmade knitting gift to be finished. I swear I think my knitting spell has gotten slower and slower this year.

Oh dear!

There was a snake wondering around the Hufflepuff halls! It was quickly caught and done away with but someone was wondering what spell they used. I bet they used the banishing charm. I mean that is the one I would use to get rid of a snake. I can't stand the sight of them!

As for my health, I am taking it easy. This unfortunately meant I couldn't travel down to Hogsmead last weekend but some of my friends brought me some lovely treats! I do love liquorice wands and chocolate frogs! Thanks for those how have inquired about my health. I doing quite well and getting all my studies done.

Friday, June 6, 2008

Feel better!

My mum came to visit me at Madam Pomphrey's request. I think she was all ready to take me home with her but just seeing her and talking to her did wonders for my health and I am back in classes. I of course have to take it easy, which means no physical activities I have gotten a note for my professors and they are piling on the book work. You know I love book work anyways, much more so than broom class. I am going to stay a little longer this year after terms are over to make up for what I missed also. It is so good to be back. I really missed my Hufflepuff's and my other class mates too.

All this week, I have been in the informary. I don't know what it is I feel like I have drunk a sleeping potion that just won't go away.

Well with all this bed rest, I should beable to get Ingrid's surprise done in no time. Miss Pomprey said I was to lay here until she figures out what it is that is cause me to be so tired.

Back at Hogwarts....

Well I am officially a 2nd year at Hogwarts now. I got all packed (everything off my long list of things to take checked off)... glad Mum told me to take the magic bottomless carpet bag because it seems this year I have more "stuff" to take. All the school supplies alone took up half of my room, so many liquids in little tiny bottles. I am really getting into the potions book. Yes, I have already started reading it. I know we aren't suppose to or try out the lessons if we aren't in class but it couldn't be helped. I am really fascinated with how you put a little of this and a little of that and POOF you have a bit of chocolate. Granted, the first few times the chocolate tasted like something scrapped off a shoe, but hey I am just learning after all.

The train ride was uneventful.... ok, as uneventful as a train to Hogwarts can be... there was only a few 1st years turned into frogs. I got to help turn them back this year since I did so well last year in my wand classes. One little boy, though, has to go to the infirmary as soon as we get to school because his head would not unfrog. It actually was quite a funny sight to see a little boy walking around with a frog head. Although him trying to catch flies with his tongue was a bit annoying after a while... it still found it humorous.

Well I am all unpacked and ready for classes next week. I had to help a few 1st years navigate the moving stairs. They can be tricky until you get used to them. A few forgot the password too into the main hall and were stuck outside trying as they might to remember. I let them all in because I never forget anything and also gave them tips on how to remember. I just love Hogwarts.... Ok now back to my knitting.... going to meet up with some old friends in the commons and discuss classes and knit.... I am so glad to be back!

Getting ready for new term...

I am packing up for my 2nd year at Hogwarts. I am super excited yet again to be going back. There were such fun times to be had last year and after the holidays I am itching to get back to my books. I also going to be joining in on another sock swap! It was sooo fun to do last year. This year we get to knit our partner a sock, bag or scarf. That should be fun! I liked knitting the bag last year but it would be nice to be able to knit something different.

Ok let me get back to packing. I will be off for the train station in 2 days and I don't want to leave anything behind, most of all my knitting!!!

He should be back to his owlie self by the time his flight is over. Silly bird. He does love sweets. I hope Cassandra likes it.

I just came back from a lovely walk around Hogwarts. It is starting to feel like spring, which happens to be my favorite time of year! I love the flowers and the smells. I love the way the trees look with all the blossoms. It looks like a fairy forest. Oh and when the wind blows the petals fly through the air makes me want to dance in the midst of them. Ahhhhh lovely spring!

Kit for my pal

I have the bag done for my sock pal. I just got the yarn for her too it is beautiful. Now I have been shopping around in Hogsmead for needles and stitch markers. I have a few other things I have my eye on for her. I hope she likes the kit. I love how the bag turned out. It's my first time felted and I think it turned out quit well, if I do say so myself. I am sorry I haven't written much lately. I have been busy what with school, social outings and events, with a little knitting time stuck in here and there. It has been a busy time for me. I am hoping things will calm down a little bit soonish. Until next time

Hufflepuff Quiz

I finally figured out the quiz.... Took some thinking but I did it the answer is

"Then you should have died!" roared Black. "Died rather than betray your friends, as we would have done for you!"


This weekend we went to Hogsmead. It was soooo much fun hanging out with everyone looking at all the different sometimes odd or oogy things in Dervish & Banges. I also loved the butterbeer and relaxing after such a hard week of studies in The Three Broomsticks. Everyone was there getting warmed up. I think though my favorite shop had to be Honeyduke's Sweetshop. I do love my chocolate. No I didn't get any chocolate froggies. I love froggies and I would only beable to keep it and look at it instead of eating it.

Oh and no getting sick or you will be sent off to the hospital! Poor Madame Pompfrey is ill. How did this happen? I never knew she could get sick. She heals so well and has so many potions wonder what laid her up? I wonder if it is catchy? I mean I was there last week with my cold could I catch it!!!

I have been working on the bag for my swap partner. I hope it goes well. I am trying something new it's called felting. I have never tried doing this before. I mean knitting something big then shrinking it on purpose? What a brillant idea. A lot of the girls around Hogwarts say they have tried it and it worked out really nicely for them and produced a neat little item. So, I am trying this "felting" stuff out, of course having after reading all about it and doing tons of research on it. One can't be too prepared, can one? I really like my swap partner, Cassandra. She is a dear. We have been getting to know each other and she is a very sweet person. I am enjoying knitting for her and picking out the other things for her bag.

Oh and the most exciting news of all is the Quiditch match is starting Sat!!!! I hope I find the snitch. I soooo want to. Hufflepuff is still in the lead with the house points and I want us to remain in the lead.

Course Listing

Here is my course list:

Ancient Runes
Care of Magical Creatures
Defense Against the Dark Arts
Enchanted Kit Planning
History of Magic
Magic in Threadwork and Weaving
Muggle Studies

Pretty impressive, I should say. I will have lots of studying to do along with knitting and everything else. I am looking forward to DADA and Flying class. Herbology and History of Magic not so much, though. They seem like they would be booooring. I guess you just have to take the good with the bad, as me mum always says.

I haven't run into my sock partner yet. I have looked around for her but since I got the owl about the swap. I haven't seen her. I hope she isn't laid up or anything. Hogwarts is fun and an exciting place to be right now. The halls are buzzing with all the excitement. I have met quite a few fellow witches that knit. We have been chatting and knitting around the fire most nights. I am sure this will change when studies start up.

My partner

I got my sock partner today! She is Cassandra Hopkirk. A Ravenclaw girl. I have seen her in the main hall at meals but haven't spoken to her yet. I will make an effort today as I have time. I finally got flowers from my Orchideous charm. Lovely peach roses. My fav! Tomorrow me Mum is sending me my broom by owl. I totally forgot it at home. I could have sworn I packed it but I guess with all the excitement it was forgotten. I am glad I realized it before classes started. I wouldn't want to be stuck with one of the spare wonky brooms. I would probably end up on the other side of the world unable to stop it or something.

Everyone is so nice here at Hogwarts. Well there are still a few Slytherins that are kind of obnoxious but that's to be expected, of course. I received a note from Petunia the other day. She told me she would help me with anything I needed. She is a 2nd year student so she has a whole year at Hogwarts under her belt. I heard that the owls should be coming for my swap partner for my extracurricular knitting kit. I hope she comes soon. I am getting impatient, very unlike me. I must be excited. I think I will study my defense against the dark arts text book while I wait to tide me over.

I had one exciting lesson yesterday. I tired out the Orchideous spell. Penelope was teaching some of us 1st year Hufflepuffs. I can't quit get the spell down though. I don't get flowers I keep getting mushrooms that have this awful smell. Now my wand stinks of it. Not sure what I did and the others have assured me the smell with dissipate with time. I sure hope so. I had to stick my wand in its box and that in 3 plastic bags to cut down on the smell in my room.

I love you, Mum... don't worry about me. I am doing smashing!

Hogwart Tales

Oh my Diarly, Guess what happened today!!! Someone got ambitious in the Ravenclaw commons and their whole hall is soaked! I can't imagine. The poor girl. I bet she was embarrassed. If I was her I would keep it under wraps. That is a lesson for me though. I wont be dabbling in magics til I am told.

I got sorted!!!

I really don't know why in the world I was worried.... I got sorted into HUFFLEPUFF!!!! I have already met some of my house mates they are all really nice. I think though I spent more time talking to Ravenclaws then anyone else. They aren't a bad lot really, but the Slytherins, they are just plain stuck up! I went to introduce myself to a couple and none of them would talk to me! That's ok.... I will have more then enough friends to go around. OOOOH I almost forgot I signed up for some extra curricular activities, one of them being The Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap. I get to conjure up a bag. I haven't tried doing that yet. It should be a nice challenge. I also need to find some charms and yarn in my friends house colors. That shouldn't be too hard to do. I think also I will put in a couple of goodies like some chocolate frogs and licorice wands just for good measure.

Oh I am so excited, classes start next week for me so I have a whole week almost to take my tests and sign up for the classes I need to take. This is going to be the best first year ever!

Off to Hogwarts

Today I am taking the train to Hogwarts. I am soooooooooooooo excited, as this will be my first year. I am also a little bit scared. My mum says that is to be expected. She was excited and scared her first time too. She has told me so many things about her time at Hogwarts though so that has taken the edge off of some of the scariness. One thing I am scared of is the sorting hat! I don't want to be a Slytherin. I come from a long line of Hufflepuffs and that's what I want to be!!! What if I am put in a different house!?! I am so nervous. I am sure I will faint when the headmaster puts the hat on my head. Oh, I have to go now, Diarly, my mum is calling! It's time to go to the station!!!
