Its been a very busy weekend at the cottage. Mr. Wigworthy has been planting some gooseberry bushes, and building a play shelf in the room that our two youngest wizards share. They have a toy quidditch set that I keep tripping over when I go in to cast a few cleaning spells, and after my latest fall I begged the dear man to make something they could put it on other than the floor. He's so obliging - I guess because it gives him the chance to play with his favoutite wand attachments!
Despite all the disturbing bangs and blasts sounding from the boys room, I managed to find some quiet to do a little work on things to include in the kit I'm sending my swap partner. I am so enjoying this little wheeze, and learning quite a lot of new stuff doing it. Instead of just knitting I'm trying my hand at quite a few popular muggle crafts. Of course, I don't want to say too much in case my partner should pop in and find out too much!
Sadly, because we were so busy at home I missed the start of term feast at Hogwarts. Professor Wartbobble invited all the alumni that are involved with the sock kit swap (which it turns out is her invention). Very interesting that the new headmistress is fond of socks because I remember Professor Dumbledore was also a sock-lover.
When I have time I will leave my answers here for the little quiz the Deputy Headmistress has set us Ravenclaws.
