With a name like Andromeda...

... it has to be good. Check out this ultra cool sock yarn that I share my name with. If you click on the picture it will take you to the shop that it came from. It makes me squee with delight. Almost as much as Edward did when he was here. But don't tell Oliver Wood that one. He might not care for it too much. Mum had the family owl (Nemesis) deliver it since she knew I was in a funk lately. I found this lovely piece on that muggle site Etsy that can be placed on a chain for a necklace. If you click on the picture than it will take you to the store that has it. Obviously it is a picture of the Andromeda Galaxy. I plain on making one of these little beauties myself since I am quite capable and very crafty. Until next time...

Meet the Cousin

Dear Diary,

Today totally sucked and not in a good way. I am not even gonna go into the Quidditch match fiasco but the twin sister had better stay out of my way. I think it is time for a visit to my dear cousin Georgiana (Hufflepuff). She always knows how to calm me down. More later...

An RAOK for me.....

This lovely RAOK (Random Act of Kindness) came from Miss Diana Lockhart. It had been a long week so far and I found a package just sitting on my bed in the dorm room. So this was the sort of thing that just cheered me right up and got me out of my bluey-blues. Diana actually sewed the knitting roll herself. Amazing, eh? Now I have a stylish container for all of my DPNs. I love everything that was in the package and the chocolate cures everything. Hugs to Diana!!!

Andromeda's Diary

Dear Diary,

It has been snowing here at Hogwarts. It seems that every time it happens, I get a little sad. Let's face it - I miss Edward. But who knows if I will ever see him again. It is just kinda hard to when I look at the bracelet he gave me. Anyway, it snowed again and there went all the great plans to get outside. Instead I spent most of my time in the common room working on my 'Puffball pal's bag. Not really liking how it is coming out so far. So most likely it will be frogged and started again. At least I have her yarn already purchased. It is very pretty and soft. Hope she likes it. But I really don't see a problem with that. Plus I have some other ideas that shall not be revealed here. I don't want there to be any chances of her catching wind of what her package might contain. Well, that is all for now. One last thing, I swear I thought I saw Edward at Hogsmeade but it must have been my imagination. I know for a fact that he is not even in the country.
