Potter Party and Celebrate the small things


Last weekend we hosted a 'Potter Party.' What fun! There were glasses of butterbeer and pumpkin juice, polyjuice potion cocktails and salmon with a gillyweed sauce. Not to mention Petunia Dursley's cream pudding and a chocolate golden snitch tart! We played games of, pin the scar on Harry, guess the flavour of the jelly bean and even our own version of quidditch. I know you wanna picture, I'll try and get a couple to post next week or maybe I'll update this post over the weekend if my daugher sends me over the pics.

This week I am celebrating having a quiet weekend to do some serious writing. Really looking forward to shutting myself away for some guilt free indulgence!

Whatever you're up to this weekend have fun.

  17. Hi Suzanne,

    Oh, a Potter Party. What a most excellent time you had. I still think Harry Potter is Billy Bunter. I remember that show when I was a little boy.

    Have a laid back weekend and enjoy your writing moments.
