A long dark week.

I can't imagine that no one missed me!

I was sent down to the dungeon to do some more detention. No one told me there was a labyrinth down there. Then to add insult to injury, I was caught (still trying to find my way out, I might add!) after hours and I received more detention. I swear I think someone has put a jinx on me. No one can get this much detention unintentionally. It's just not possible, even the Weasley boys can't get this much detention and they are trying.

I have finished my detention for that - I had to scrub the potions tables and sort the ingredients cupboard. So if I can manage to stay out of trouble for the rest of the day I will be able to have an evening free.

Tonight El and I ARE going to go for a walk in a bubble and I'm going to get her to help me look for the jinx and remove it. I have been too tired to look for it myself. They finally removed the no-talking spell so I can finally ask for some help. I can't take one more detention. I'm weeks behind in my homework and studies. I'm exhausted and I will never get clean again EVER. I'm just going to sit here in the main room and try to catch up on Ancient Rune reading. I hope that I can manage to do that without getting into trouble.

The week that never ends

As if all the detention wasn't bad enough my Ravenclaw boy has found himself another girl - From SLYTERIN - apparently he is just looking for someone who will annoy his parents. I'd be mad - but what is the point of that?

While cleaning the Headmaster's office I had a chat with the Sorting Hat. He thought I was very interesting. I could talk to him so apparently he is a professor of some type. There is a lot of dust in that office. I have to go back today. But there was a lovely bag of wool on one of the chairs - with my name on it! It was so cool. I have been too tired to look at it much though. Anyway, I am looking forward to more chatting with the Hat - he knows so many stories. He told some funny ones about Papa when he was a second year. I don't think I will be able to not tell him I heard the story when I see him next. It certainly does explain his humor over my getting caught sneaking back into school.

One thing about not being able to chat with the other students - I'm getting caught up on my homework. I found a mistake in the sweater I'm knitting and I had to rip it back. That is SO annoying.

I am also making a bag for my swap partner! I'm so hoping she likes it. It's taking longer than I thought it would but it is turning out well. My other package items are all done. I have one set of stitch markers made - but I want to make another. And I have a surprise in the works as well.

There will be pictures but not before it all goes out in the post - must not ruin the surprise!
