Oh dear! This book tends to be tempermental from time to time, particularly when it thinks that I've been neglecting it! Another lovely bouquet of chrysanthemums that Arthur had brought me home have been eaten! Arthur, dear, perhaps this little blighter might not find another type of flower to be so appetising. I just thought I'd tell you so you could tuck it away for future reference.

I've taken leave from the flower arranging and ceramics painting classes that I've been taking at the community centre in the next village over. After everything that's happened recently, I thought it best if I were to be more readily available. You never know when an emergency will sprout up or you just need your mum these days, so you lot be sure to owl or floo if needs be. Yes, Fred and George, that goes for the both of you as well.

Ronnie, dear, I haven't heard from you in a while. Do let me know how you're doing; a mother always worries, you know.

Ginny, the same goes for you. I know that you've gone through something terribly trying, but you can talk to me about it.

Harry? If there is anything that Arthur and I can do for you, just say the words. We think of you as one of our own and we've been worrying about you as much as our other children lately. I'm very proud of you and what you do for the wizarding world.

Hermione, congratulations on your book, dear. Your mum and dad must be so very proud. If you're still needing some information or research, I've the name of a witch in Kensington that might be of some help to you.

Luna, I've found a curious figurine with talking daisies and squirting erumpents on it behind an old pot of floo powder out in the shed. Would you like it? I can place it in the parcel of toffee and scones I'm putting together for Ron and Ginny if you do.

William? Charlie? Nymphadora? I've parcels on the way for you lot as well. Yes, there is toffee.

Well! I've prattled on so much in here that I'm nearly late for my tea with dear old Mrs Fiddlesticks down the lane. Take care, everyone!

I haven't written here in a while... I've been busy, you see.

Those poor Ravenclaw mothers and I, we've been getting together and, well, with my own last anniversary come and gone I felt I should do everything I can for them. I stop by, they stop by, the house actually gets full again with noise and talking.

It's getting less somber by the day.

I suppose I won't go into details -- that's between the ladies and I -- but if anyone out there who wants to talk about such things wants to stop by, you need only send an owl.

Tonks, Charlie, I've sent you some things for little James. They were Percy's.

As I'm sure everyone knows by now, my first grandchild was born last night. Little James dear and his mum are doing very well -- he looks a bit like Charlie when he was first born, very round and just a little fussy. Everyone was still at the Burrow for dinner when it all began, so the whole family managed to be here for his birth. It was really the most lovely Christmas I've had in a long time.

There's plenty of leftovers, so anyone that'd like to stop by the Burrow certainly can later today. In a few minutes I'm having a few parents over -- Ravenclaw parents, if you understand -- and it'd be best if it was just them for the luncheon, but after that all are welcome.

Christmas is coming, and so many plans to make... particularly for dinner on Christmas day. I know I've talked to quite a number of you, but I need to see how many times I should double my pudding recipe.

Of course I expect each and every one of my children home - and of course that includes you, Tonks dear, and any other special people any of you want to bring along... particularly you, William.

Andromeda, I saw Tonks had rightly asked you and Ted and Mouse along. Shall I set places for the three of you?

Frank, Alice, it wouldn't be a family gathering without you. Won't you bring Neville along, and his Grandmother as well?

Harry, Hermione, don't think I'd let you out. And if your parents would like to come, Hermione, tell them that of course they're welcome and I'll send Arthur out to fetch you all.

Luna? Would you and your father like to come along? I thought we could set the two empty places again. And Arabella, you'll be coming too, I think, with Kingsley? I seem to remember he was bringing his niece and she was bringing some friends as well?

Sirius and Remus, I expect you'll be along as well?

Pomona, we'd love to have you with us as well, if you've no other plans.

Kirley, dear, are you doing something for Christmas? You're quite welcome in our home.

And Alastor, I expect you'll turn me down, but you are welcome of course.

I expect most of the rest of you have family and friends you'll find yourself celebrating with, but if a friend turns up at the doorstep they'll have a chair and a meal, I can promise you that.

If it isn't a bother -- could one of the professors from Hogwarts please owl me? Minerva, perhaps? I've just one small request.

Well, I'm rather put out. This book ate my lovely bouquet of chrysanthemums that Arthur had brought me home!

I suppose that means I'm due to write in it a bit -- really, I've been so busy on and off...

Can you believe I'm taking a few classes? There's this lovely community center in the next village over, and there's such an interesting list! I'll have to get up some courage for some of them... but I'm already signed up for flower arranging and a ceramics painting class.

Ginny dear, are you feeling any better?

» Many notes for many folks.
So many things are happening so quickly, aren't they? And I feel as if I'm being left behind.

Bill, dear, that was a very... interesting exchange you had, recently. Would you like to come home and talk about it?

Charlie and Nymphadora, how are things coming along? Have you thought of anything you might need, either before or after the birth? There's always an attic full of treasures here, you know that, and I'd love to have you for a day or two, just to see.





Fred, George, I haven't heard from you in a bit. You're not getting into any trouble, are you? Do come home some evening you aren't busy, I'll make your favorites.

Ronnie dear, I think we need to have a little talk about our responsibilities.

Ginny, you've seemed so sad lately... do we need to have another bit of girl talk? You know you can tell me anything, dear.

Harry, how is the summer treating you? You haven't stopped by and we've missed you here. Hermione, the same for you... always plenty of room if the two of you would like to keep Ron company for some weekend.

Pansy, I'm worried about you, dear. I believe I'm getting a handle on what's going on, and I want you to know you are always welcome at the Burrow, even if you just want to get away for a day or two.

Luna, I've found a few rather peculiar bits and bobs about the house while cleaning, and I think they're yours. They're in a little box on the kitchen counter, if you'd like to have a look.

Remus, I want to apologize for being short with you. I know you must be in a bit of a haze, or you were for quite some time, and I do understand going a bit legless from love. If you could just convince him to take a bit of responsibility, I'd appreciate it.

And Arthur, love, could we have someone in to look at the back steps? One's a bit wobbly and I don't want any of our guests getting hurt. Come home early if you can, tomorrow, I've done a bit of a lovely set up for dinner.

Well, goodness, that took longer than I thought it would! The family circle just keeps growing, I suppose. What a delightful thought.

It's so lovely to have everyone home, and noise in the house again! Arthur, dear, do make sure that you come home in plenty of time tonight... I have a big dinner prepared for us all!

Ginny, it's so lovely to have our little talks again... would you like to help me with dinner tonight so we can have some kitchen time?

Ronnie, dear, I hadn't noticed until you'd gotten off the train, but you need a haircut rather badly. Come down before dinner and I'll just take care of that for you.

Would anyone like to drop by for a proper Sunday roast tomorrow?

Luna, dear, I've done as you asked and sent it back with an owl. It was a lovely time, honestly, and this is a lovely idea.

I thought burdening the owl with a letter too would be a bit much.

REMUS JOHN LUPIN!

I just came downstairs to find some of those lovely lampshades and what have you done? THE ENTIRE HOUSE IS SEAFOAM GREEN! We discussed this, Remus and if this is your idea of a prank, I DON'T FIND IT FUNNY AT ALL! You have even managed to change EVERY lovely bit of cloth and EVEN THOSE BEAUTIFUL LAMPSHADES!! CHANGING THE BOXES THEY WERE IN MAKES IT NO MORE FUNNY.

You'd best be HIDING, young man, or out PICKING OUT SOME REPLACEMENTS!!!!!


AND HURRY. I want to reverse this color before it absolutely BLINDS me. My EYES.

All sorts of little things I'm wondering about, today. Such as the favorite colors of certain persons, and the favorite foods of certain others. I'm beginning to think trivia is taking over my life... at least it's important trivia.

Arthur, dear, if you're going to be late for dinner tomorrow, could you let me know? I'll keep it warm and eat with you when you get home.

Bill and Charlie, I haven't heard from either of you recently. I do hope you're both in good spirits and good health, and that you'll write to your mother soon. Charlie, you especially; or if he won't, Nymphadora dear, do please write me yourself. I worry, of course, and I'd be ever so glad to see you as often as you can make it over the summer.




Fred and George, the same goes for the two of you. I hear from you frequently when you're in need of a decent meal, but I don't know what's gone on in your lives of late. Will you be stopping by this summer? I'm hoping the Burrow will be quite full of friends and family, and if you've certain someones you'd like to bring home, I'm sure there's plenty of room.

Ronnie, dear, I know things haven't gone as well as they ought for you, recently, but I know you're a brave boy and will keep your chin up in the old Weasley way. I'm proud of you, dear, though I do still wish things were different.

Ginny, I think you and I need to have a few of those old heart to hearts we used to have when you were little. I'm proud of you as well, but I've read what you've written and I worry about my youngest baby.

Harry, Hermione, will you be visiting this summer at all? I know I've asked before, but I had no idea how many things would change in the space of a few weeks. There are all new places you'll be going I think, Harry especially, and possibly people to see, and while I don't precisly approve of the entire affair... well, that is that.

Pansy, I will assume you'll be coming over the summer as you said, regardless of what happens or has happened. You're a friend of the family now, and you're a delight to have in the kitchen helping me with dinner. Do please say you'll come.

And to my ladies' tea circle: apparently, Remus has started without us, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to do. Let me know if you'd like to help.

That reminds me: Remus, I've hired a set of pattern books; you ought to see what they call decorator colours these days. Still, there'll be some fabrics here that will make the place quite lovely, I think.
