Remembering Megan's birthday

July 20th, 2010 (04:03 pm)

I stopped back and visited McGonagall to tell her some news today--I've decided... all because of what happened on my Megan's birthday.  (Good thing my buddy Tonks showed up...)

June 19:

Of dragons and Canada and football

I get my students ready for the coming of a Canadian Dragon Reserve owner.  They have more to teach him than he them...He's been here in Scotland, what?  Three weeks?  I hope he's learning something. It's not the one week he originally grudgingly agreed to.

I remember when I met him a month ago.  It wasn't nearly what we'd hoped it would be . . .

. . . we had a few rough patchesCollapse )

I got a surprising letter today

I look at the long distance owl.  Not one I recognize.  I take the letter from it and give it some water and a treat. Poe looks at it jealously.  I open the letter and begin to read.

Preparing for School

August 26th, 2009 (09:17 pm)

I look at the inventory I made of magical creatures in the Forbidden Forest . . . should make for good lessons, but . . . I look at my book again of magical creatures of warmer climes. Lots of magical reptiles and amphibians that don't come as far north as Scotland would be great to teach about. I think of the witch who rented me Griffins last year. She might have some ideas. I need to talk to her about setting things up for Griffins again anyway.

Taking my wife on a date

It's time I take my wife out and remind her of why I love her.  Severus was right on that account.  It's a wonder I'm not on the sofa already. 

I send Poe to the Daily Prophet.

Sparrow,

When you finish at work, meet me at the Shrieking Shack.  Wear Muggle fancy clothes. 

He's getting older,  I notice as he takes off.  I will need to retire him in another year, I realize with a sudden pang.  He's been a good friend since I first tamed him in Romania. 

I then change into Muggle clothes and disapparate to Bath.  I get reservations at Casanis on Saville Road--French food should be something she likes.  Then I walk to the Theatre Royal Bath and get seats to tonight's performance of You Can't Take It with You.

Then I wander through town and choose a room for tonight.  I end up taking one at the Barcelo Grove Manor.  Now I just have to wait for Megan at home until it's time to meet at the shack.  Her birthday isn't a for several more days, so she won't be expecting a surprise.

Not a great start, but it improved

May 2nd, 2009 (09:56 pm)

This is not my day . . .


I look at the list of what I need to do . . . get dress robes altered, pick up book.  My robes wouldn't have needed it if I had let the elves at Hogwarts wash them instead of doing it myself.  I may need to replace them, but I hope not.  Megan and I need to be conservative with our galleons.


I head into Glad Rags, looking for the tailor.

I talk to the tailor, only to be told that my robe is not repairable.  She then proceeds to begin pressuring me to buy a new one.  I duck out of her way.  I will just have to make this one do for now.  Maybe Mum can help me make it better.

I get out of there as quickly as I can, then I can go to check and see if the new book I ordered on dangerous magical creatures of South America has arrived yet. Five minutes later I enter the book store.

"Miss,"  I ask at the counter.  "Do you have an order in for Professor Weasley?"

She grins at me.  "Let me see,"  she says, checking a list.  "You ordered Dangerous and Magic:  Beasts of the Amazon Jungle, right?"

"Yes,  I did,"  I tell her, "You have it in then?" 

"No, it's on back order.  Sorry."  I hide my frustration and go to look at other books.

telling megan

April 24th, 2009 (10:18 pm)

I come back from the afternoon with Bill, having had enough ale and pizza to keep me satisfied, although not more than I can handle.  I put the half box of pizza on the table. "Megan,  I'm back.  I brought you some leftover pizza."

A walk with my witch

I get home, realizing I haven't just had a quiet talk with Megan in awhile.  Sometimes she's hard to open up. Maybe a walk.  I open the door.  "Megan, I'm home."
