Partners Assigned

Yay! I received an owl from Hogwarts telling me about myHSKS5 partners for this term. I will be creating a kit for a Gryffindor, a little ironic since that's my former house. I've already done some shopping by owl post, I can't wait until they arrive! I still have to decide what handmade item to include in the package. It's always hard to knit for a knitter.

I'm so excited for start of term. It looks like we have a least one new professor this time, he looks very interesting...

Let the games begin!

It's That Time Again

I gave in and signed myself up for HSKS5. This time around I am a Slytherin! The headmistress decided to limit the number of students per house this term so the numbers would be more even, so some of us needed to switch houses. Well, having been a Gryffindor for a goosd long time I decided to transfer to Slytherin. I've never been a Slytherin before, but I did have a Slytherin partner for HSS3. It'll be fun. OK, I decided on which house I would switch to because I like green:) No need for any truth potions! There are loads of good Slytherins. All I have to say is: GO DA!!!!
