My package finally arrived. YAY. and here it is.... Thank you soooo much Hermione AKA the best spoiler ever.

So this amazingly strong owl drops off this huge box for me and before I can take it in and care for it before it returns across the sea it takes off ( Hermione must run a tight shift) Anyway I of course break right into it.

And oh my all the goodies...

First there was a great letter describing some of the things awaiting inside...

Like the Pumpkin Pasties


Then there was this intriguing package

Which turned out to be this totally amazing item...

Then another package that said A little piece of Italy...

Oh my, Yay..

Then something to help in potions class... (filled with candy)

What I believe to be a project/needle holder..

Along with some needles to put in it WOW THANK YOU...

A Dishcloth with Sirius's tat on it I believe.

Amazing Hufflepuff sock yarn...

And a Cauldron...

And so here is the entire Awesome package all together.. I vote Hermione for best kit!!!

The Duel with the snake

This duel appears as though it is going to be the most intense yet, and I have had some pretty intense Duels so far. But with my fellow Puffs cheering me on I think I can make this prediction come true. Huzzah Hufflepuff!

Hufflepuff House Quiz

Hufflepuff House Quiz time again.

Did you all get your homework done from last week? The questions are really easy and personal this need to go hunting for answers anywhere besides your own brain. Just some fun getting to know you questions and to help make the next swap better. ;)Be sure to post your answers before Thursday at midnight.

1. If this was your first HSKS, have you enjoyed yourself. If you are alumni, was this term better than other terms (if so how)? This was my first HSKS and I thought it was a lot of fun. What a great idea thank you very much to the Head Mistress and all others who make this possible and for setting everything up.

2. Will you be returning for HSKS7? I would love to but it will have to depend on the timing of it and how we (Ronnica and the kids and I) are doing (physical and finacial health)

3. What is your favorite part of HSKS? I love to roll-play, but the friendships and interactions with everyone is great too. All the creativity that goes into it is a lot of fun too.

4. If you had the chance to switch houses next term would you? What house would you be in? No way, Huzzah Hufflepuff.

5. Are there any problems that you need to talk to the Head Girl or Prefects about? I am pretty sure I have talked about everything that I needed to talk about already, the Prefects and Head Girl have been very helpfull, thank you.

6. Has your Spoiler been in contact with you about your package? Yes, thank you very much Hermione, what a great spoiler.

7. Have you been in contact with your Spoilee to let them know you are still with us? ;) Yes, Grandma Grumblyplank was a lot of fun to spoil.
