Knitting injuries

So I died last week in the Duel Club. I tried my best but it wasn't to be. I loved the competition and really enjoyed the patterns. But now I have to wear a splint and only get to knit muggle style one hour a day at most. 

Madam Pomfrey sent me to another wizard who specializes in bones and their movements. I think the muggles call them orthopedic doctors.  Supposedly, he can repair them with several new spells that he has patented. Unfortunately, the brace that they put my hand in has to be here for another two weeks.

I sure am glad that all that needed to be done for Morgana's bag is to wrap it. I don't know if I would be able to get it done. I am hoping to get it in the mail next week. YEAH! I hope she likes it.

I better stop now before it starts to hurt again.

Next time, I'll send the Howler FIRST!!

Thanks for the suggestion of the Howler. It seems that the Ministry only responds to those. It is with MUCH joy and elation that I am happy to announce, WE ARE FINALLY CONNECTED TO THE FLOO NETWORK!! 

It appears to be just in time or I might have had to forfeit my opportunity to duel. Now if I can only find my time turner to get everything else done in time to be there.....

More later. 

P.S. I need to send my DEEPEST apologies to my fellow housemates. I failed to post this past week due to the failure of the Ministry to get the floo network operable. I'm sorry ladies to have cost us points. Please forgive me.

The craziness of moving

It seems that the Ministry doesn't know the right hand from its left. We have waited paitently for the extention to our new home allowing us access to the floo network, which they said was no problem, now seems to be a problem. We have no floo network at our new home. So I have had to resort to the muggle way of dealing with the problem. I have found a public library to post from. I apologize for fading into the wallpaper, but my largest problem at the moment is the sea of boxes that has overcome the Crookshanks household. It seems that the younger children have learn a new spell compliments of oldest one. (HE really is all Slytherin.) It was duplicating the boxes and paper. Just when we think we have unpacked all the items, there another appears.

Well back to the grindstone.
