it arrived

yes the parcel that I sent to Emma Wigworthy arrived safe and sound. It arrived super quick too which is really impressive! The owl must have flown super fast to get there as it only took 24hrs.

I'm still waiting on one item for Emma's kit. Totally annoying as everything I ordered via the wizard catalog has been going missing. I ordered a book and it never arrived so I had to order another one. Now the other thing I ordered in plenty of time has yet to arrive. If it doesn't turn up in my post today I'll be sending a howler to them!

Tis very annoying, but I'm wondering if someone put a curse on me?
