Arabella, Andromeda and Pomona particularly: I have a few things I need to take care of, and I believe you'd enjoy helping. I'll be in my kitchen all day, send me a firecall when you get a moment.

A long and peculiar week... May. 14th, 2004 @ 11:10 pm
It's been quite the week -- quite the fortnight, actually. Here I thought I'd be able to get Arthur back into dancing lessons one of these weekends, and it's all gotten terribly busy again. At least I can keep myself busy with the tail end of spring cleaning!

Speaking of cleaning, I have all these bedrooms and I'm not even sure who will be here for the summer. I know my Ronnie and Ginny are coming home, of course, but that leaves me with three empty bedrooms -- four if I absolutely must -- and we can always make up the couch or put Ronnie in a tent in the garden, if there are more.

Not that I expect a crowd this summer, but one never knows! And I do hope I'll at least get a visit from all my children -- especially Charlie and Nymphadora. This is my first grandchild, you know, and I'd like every opportunity to spoil it to no end, even before its birth.

Harry and Hermione, you know you're both welcome to visit as long as you like and as often as you like -- just give me a bit of notice so there'll be a bed made and a place at the table.

Ronnie, Ginny, do either of you have any other friends you'd like to have over this summer? Perhaps special friends?

Bill, do be careful in what you're doing. I know you think it's for the best, but I still worry.

And that goes for you too, Fred, George. I know you haven't mentioned anything particular lately, but it never hurts to remind you to be careful.

Ron, if you don't mind I'd like to come up to the school this weekend... just to talk to you about what you've discovered, and all that's happened.

And if you're about, Albus, I'll be speaking with you as well.

What a lovely tea yesterday! Thank you ever so much for joining me, ladies, and I think we got quite a few things done, don't you? I had no idea the sheer number of things we could sort out when we put our minds to it! It's lovely to be pleasently surprised for once, isn't it?

Arthur wants everyone to know he apologizes for not answering back when people wrote bits in this journal, but he's been ever so busy sorting things out after the terrible thing that happened. I'm sure he'll be able to answer back soon!

I suppose I don't have a terrible lot to say, at the moment. I feel awful for what happened, and if someone could put me in touch with Mrs Thomas... well, there's only so much I can do, but perhaps talking to another woman who's buried a child would help.

To all my lovelies, know I love you very much.

Oh, Fred, George, what was all that about ogres and onions again? I still don't quite understand.

Well, it's been quite a while since I've updated this little book... I think it got jealous and took a nibble out of one of my favorite cookbooks! I suppose I'd better write before the situation gets worse.

As everyone of course knows, Arthur is Minister now, and I think he's doing an absolutely lovely job. It's only fitting that my Arthur filled the position, really, after all that's happened, and how it was sorted that... well, it's all been made right, in the end, hasn't it? As much as it can be, though if the price for all this was what happened to Percy, I'd much rather have my baby back.

I'm still a bit upset with you, Harry dear, but that's mostly out of worry and you shouldn't let it bother you. I'm quite a bit more upset at certain adults, who I thought were the sensible ones and then go off acting like certain other adults who I've made no secret of not approving of.

But all that's overshadowed by something so very lovely... Nymphadora, dear, welcome to the family. And Charlie, congratulations again. I really do wish I could have been there -- the very first wedding in the family, and I miss it! -- but I know the two of you are very happy and I wish you all the best.

I've been thinking, perhaps, that since neither of your parents could be at the wedding, we ought to have a party to celebrate so the families can congratulate you properly. And what's a wedding without cake and gifts? I'm sure between the four of us, we could put together an absolutely lovely event, and perhaps have it just after the end of the school year, so the entire family could attend? (After all, we have students and professors in the family now!) Andromeda, Ted, would you like to help me put something together?

The good news always outweighs the bad, doesn't it? I hope this little book is satisfied, now, and I'm off to try to reconstruct my potato dumpling recipe.

Good lord.

Am I really the Minister of Magic?

Suppose it's not sunk in quite yet! I half expect Molly dear to poke me in the arm and wake me up and tell me I'm snoring again! Haha!

Right, though this is not a dream and I am very much awake, and I'm the Minister so I'll get right on acting the part. I've got loads to do and I won't be able to say very much about it. Won't have time for much of anything I'm afraid!

I love you all my duckings!

Harry James Potter!!!

Am I reading these journals correctly? It seems that you're not only watching duels, but actually encouraging innocent girls like Hermione to indulge in that kind of violent behavior? I honestly know very little about the young woman she dueled, but I suspect that as any young woman, she would never do such a thing without encouragement.

I see Ron wasn't there -- though the fact that you were in detention is hardly an excuse, Ronald Billius! -- but honestly, I step away from these journals for a week and everyone is getting themselves into trouble.

Except for you, of course, Ginny.

I am pleased that you seemed to act appropriately after the duel, but really Harry, there are so many better ways to get things done!

P.S. Harry, I've sent tins of saltwater taffy to yourself, Ron, Ginny, Hermione and Pansy. Ta if you could make sure everyone got theirs and remind them to brush their teeth afterwards.
» Happy birthday, Ronnie!
I've been so very busy -- too busy to write in this journal -- but I just wanted to wish my dear youngest son the happiest of seventeenth birthdays! I've got a lovely surprise for you that I don't want to owl out... when you come home this weekend to take your apparition exam, we'll have a special dinner. (And if you'd like to bring your girlfriend along, we can certainly see about arranging it.)

Love, your Mum (and Dad sends his fondest regards as well!)

Thank you to all our lovely friends who have supported us so the last few days. Troubling times are always made easier by good food and good company.

I have come to realize, in the last few days, that nothing is so troubling as silence. A moment of silence from someone you love to hear laugh sitting quietly at breakfast, a month of silence waiting for an expected letter, a year of silence you've no choice but to regret.

I've noticed more than one family lately -- families I don't usually pay much attention to, but families none the less -- who are... I will use the word 'estranged' to mean any number of things.

Please, talk to your family. We live in dangerous times, and no moment is worse than the heartbeat before you hear something terrible, the moment when you know without being told and everything you've done that's terrible comes rushing back to you.

What family you have, be it good or ill, is tied to you, and it's a rare day when it's not worth it to try to come back to them.

And to my family, do know that I love you.

And, a final tiny request -- Kingsley, if you have a chance to stop by the burrow, could you? I've some need to put my mind at ease.

Andromeda, we'll have to reschedule that dinner.

I'm sorry.

What a lovely day it's been. Harried, but lovely!

Fred and George, I hope you're getting along much better now -- I saw you almost started talking about your problems in Ginny's journal, and I do hope you keep talking at home. It's important, you know. All family is.

And Percy, dear, it was lovely to hear that you talked to your father tonight. You really should have come home for dinner, and I don't think you should be working that late.

Things aren't the best yet, but they are looking up.

Ron, dear, let me know if there's something going on I don't know about... you seem very withdrawn.

And Ginny, as I said. Nothing's spot on yet, but it is looking up, I think.

... there is an awful lot of toffee pudding in this house. Would anyone like a package?
