House Quiz

The Head Girl posted the first quiz for Gryffendor this week! It took a bit (I am frightfully out of practice!) but here is my answer:
Hogwarts. Hogwarts. Hoggy warty Hogwarts. Teach us something, please! Whether we be old and bald or young with scabby knees, our heads could do with some interesting stuff. For now they're bare and full of air, dead flies and bits of fluff. So teach us things worth knowing. Bring back what we've forgot. Just do your best, we'll do the rest, and learn until our brains all rot!

The First Week at Hogwarts

This has been such an exciting week! I feel so overwhelmed. Being muggleborn means that everything is strange and new here. My pre-classes shopping trip rewarded me with the most fabulous wand! I am still looking for just the right broomstick, one can't be too picky!
The beginning of term feast was the best thing ever! Pasties and puddings and treacle, oh my! I was a nervous wreck about the sorting ceremony, watching all the others try on that hat and to see how everyone cheered at the outcome... What a relief to be chosen for Gryffindor! Though to be honest, all the houses are full of fabulous people! I am meeting so many new friends, and the knitting group I have joined is bound to bring even more friends to the circle.
The year looks so promising I don't know what I was worried about!
