Where is Winnie????

This week it sounds like Winnie went to 2 places. She mentioned Cyprian Youdle who was cursed during a Quidditch match but that happened in 1357 and not 1857. I was thinking Queerditch Marsh as that is the birthplace of Quidditch but now I am thinking that she was referring to the first match of that year. She also mentioned that one of the teams had a lovely blue jersey and a silver arrow as in the Appleby Arrows whose home town is Appleby Village located in Lincolnshire. Sadly the village is void of any shops or pubs. Then there was the cryptic bolded letters - D N T. Still have yet to figure out what they mean.

Where is Winnie????

This week our headmistress went to two different places that are thousands of miles apart. Her first stop took her south of the equator where it is "spring" while it is "fall" up here. She will get to see lots of sheep and alpaca while there. So my guess would be Larnach Castle located within the limits of the city of Dunedin, New Zealand.

The second stop took her to a "a quaint little factory that makes it fresh in the town that is situated on a lake that is on the border of Quebec". Also the town used to be 3 little towns that were combined into one. So my guess is Stanstead, Quebec located near Lake Memphremagog. The town of Stanstead was created in 1995 by the merger of the former towns of Stanstead Plain, Rock Island and Beebe Plain. They were known collectively as "Trois villages" or "Three villages."
I haven't quite figured out what the letters "CLR" and "CLS" meant. But they are probably important somehow.

Where is Winnie????

Our beloved Headmistress has gone on vacation. Apparently it started off crazy with a run in with the department head of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. Something about
improperly teaching some young wizards how to apparate. The department head must have clearly lost his mind as she would never do that. So it looks like her journey has begun in London, England at the Ministry of Magic. From there, who knows?

Here is the package that arrived today. It is from Lilith Greyhardt of Ravenclaw. Look I got a pair of snakey mittens as well. :) Very happy with that. Also I love Nutella and look forward to trying out the coffee. Thank you Lilith. I am totally thrilled with my package.
