Crazy week

I apologize now for freaking out my head girls an prefect. I have had a really crazy week and time just flew by. I had every intention of posting here the house quiz in time for being entered into the hat, but it, being time, got away from me. 

One more week and my muggle classes will be done. Mr. Crookshanks is finally home for a bit. I bought a house. I finished teaching a couple of classes at the muggle yarn store. 

I hope to be involved in house planning a bit more from now on. 

Since it has been so busy, I am off to bed now.

Slytherin House Quiz #2: How Well Do You Know Your Housemates?

1. Which housemate has an 11 ½ inch holly wand with a Dragon Heartstring core? Bathilda Boomslang. She had to because she and her sister were fighting over whose wand was left on the floor when they were making such a racket that Elvie the Slytherin House Elf cracked in and snapped it in half. It was only after he cracked back out that Belladonna realized it really was Bathilda's. DOWT!

2. Which housemate creates rockin’ sock patterns? Absolutely the most marvelous Emma Wigworthy! She should write a book.
