Yes a big round of applause to Hufflepuff for winning the House Cup.

I'm well impressed with the speed of the snitch hunters as every time I play I miss it for some stupid reason!

This has been a lovely swap and such a lovely group to be in, I'm well proud to be a badger!

So Thank you to everyone, and especially Lavender who helped me out loads when I was in China as well as when I returned back to the UK!

Three Cheers for Huff!

It arrived, and a surprise!

Well finally Olie made it to Miranda's house. There was a slight problem of no one being home to receive the parcel so he kept coming back with it until someone was home.
In the end he did make it, and it appears that everything arrived safely. I guess he made a good decision about not leaving it somewhere, so I won't punish him for seeming what looked like ages delivering it!

I hope Miranda likes it, or at least something in there is useful!

I also received a surprise the other day, another owl from Emma Wigworthy! I received a lovely lovely sock book because I'm new to socks (haven't made one yet!) so this book will be getting lots of wear and tear for the foreseeable near future.

I have been reading the book from beginning to end to soak up all the information, and useful tips that I'll be needing. Once I finish one of a pair of fingerless gloves, next stop is socks!

where is the parcel and my spider???

Seriously where is the parcel that I sent to Miranda Moonstone???? I sent it days ago, I knew I should have not let my spider take it. Where on earth did he get to with it???

I'm never listening again to how strong or fast he is. Totally unwarented at this moment in time. I'm hoping it will turn up soon! When he gets back he'll not be allowed any fruit for a month as a punishment!

It's here, it's here!

Yes that is my parcel from Emma Wigworthy! Totally out did herself with this parcel. I'm so chuffed with everything.

Here is a list of all my goodies. Soon there will be pictures to go along with it.

In my lovely parcel is: stitch markers in lovely Hufflepuff colours, a needle gauge with elephants all over it (I love elephants!) made especially for me, beautiful wooden needles with a needle holder, a darning needle holder with darning needles. I also have muggle sweets which I can't wait to try out. And Emma made some homemade pumpkin pickle, can't wait to try that out.

I also have a Hogwarts journal and pencil case, with some funky glitter gel pens. I have some lovely lovely squishy Hufflepuff yarn which was hand dyed for me. I can't wait to try that out. I have a beautiful snitch measuring tape, and a little tin with hair in it! I also have a range of sock patterns designed by Emma herself. Goodness, I'll have to learn how to knit socks now! The patterns are beautiful, and so complicated looking. Dear me, I think I might have to find someone to help me with learning the techniques to do socks.

I have the prettiest hat in all my favourite colours, with elephants all around it! And surprise, it fits! It actually looks good on my head, well done!

It was such a lovely parcel and everything was wrapped in paper that had my name all over it, tied up with nice blue ribbon (I love blue, I love ribbons!)

I want to say a big thank you to Emma for such a lovely parcel! Totally love it!

Almost forgot....

to do my homework for the week. I sat here for a long time this afternoon trying to figure this out...


huh? might be your first thought, as that was what mine was. So I tried this and that, and I think I came up with the right thing. Either that or it is supposed to look like above.

Here is what I managed:

"You know what?" Ron murmured, looking over at the bar with enthusiasm. "We could order anything we liked in here. I bet that bloke would sell us anything, he wouldn't care. I've always wanted to try firewhisky."


Looking for a box

You'd think looking for a box would be relatively easy, but I'm having trouble finding one to put Miranda Moonstone's parcel in. I might have to give up and go to the Muggle Post office where Muggles post their letters and parcels. Apparently they are not delivered by owls at all (how odd), but rather by post men and women who go door to door with thep parcels/letters. Imagine all that work they they do everyday!

I like going into Muggle places cause it is all very exciting. I hope I don't stand out too much I can never figure out the money. I might spend some time there just getting to see what goes on, as this is pretty facinating. Miranda is a Muggle, I wonder if I should ask her some questions. I'm always very shy around Muggles, they seem to know so much more than I do about "things."

Anyways after I get the box which I've been told they have there, I will pack up the parcel, but first I need to do some wrapping etc, as it makes it more exciting to unwrap a few things.

I just hope Miranda likes her parcel, there is some pretty funny stories to go along with some things, which I will write down for her. She will no doubt shake her head and roll her eyes at my sheer blondeness. Sometimes I just don't have the patience for rules, regulations, or any other step by step instructions (which will be apparent let me tell you!)

There will be two parcels instead of one because well that is what has happened. One is coming from me, one is coming from My great-uncle Jim because well, he knows about certain Muggle things which has come in handy for this swap. I'm just hoping his owl makes it sometime this week because the poor thing is quite old. I'm thinking he'll be taking lots of rest breaks along the route.

If you see an old owl Miranda with a beard, that would be him. I have no idea why he has a beard, but I have my suspicions it is actually my other great-uncle Frank. Must do some digging on that subject.

Olie (my spider's nickname!) has told me we have to get a map to get to the post office cause he doesn't know about these things either. Then I have to go to the hospital to visit my friend whose guts exploded out of his body after doing a spell. He's okay now, but he is missing some bits apparently. I should ask him what spell he was doing so I can avoid that one myself.

Olie is being very bossy, I'm wondering who forgot to wrap up their fruit in the dormitory!
