My Swap Pal

I received some owl post this week. The first was a very nice letter from my Swap Spoiler, Maegera Black from Slytherin. She seems really, really nice and I'm really looking forward to getting to know her this year.
The other was the information about my Swap Spoilee. I got a BOY! Ugh! He's only participating in this swap as a punishment for some earlier mischief he got into. His name is Stuart and the Headmistress is making him learn how to knit. I guess I should keep an open mind about him, but he just seems like a trouble maker to me. He's in Ravenclaw, which is a big surprise, he doesn't seem all that bright to me.
Oh and if anybody hears my friends saying I have a crush on him.... This is NOT true! I can't stand the guy, even though he's kinda funny.... and sorta cute. But, no, definately no crush here!

Quidditch Prize!

Guess what arrived in the mail this week!? My prize for finding the Snitch during Quidditch last term! Aren't these stitch markers beautiful!?

I would've shown pictues earlier but this horrible muggle computer was acting up. I tried to fix it myself, but, you know you should never send a witch to do a muggle's job. I found a kind muggle chap to repair this thing for me and at least now I can blog again. Yay!
