Today was the first time I pulled my wand from Ollivanders out of its bag since the morning I bought it.

The box still bears the dust of sitting in the wand shop; it's scuffed in several places and the logo is faded. I was fascinated as I inspected the marks. How many wandkeepers had pulled this wand from its place among the stacks, only to be met with rejection? How many "wizards" had this wand been presented to before it found me?

For a brief moment, I could've sworn it was all real.

For you and Mr Mac...........I hope he is doing ok after his surgery and not in much pain. Poor thing


Just back home after a couple days at a Spa hotel with a good friend of mine. We had a lovely couple of days being pampered and spoiled with treatments and lovely food and wine. My skin is glowing and feels so healthy....I`m sure it won`t last Sat with large glass of red wine just now.

Back home to a very tidy home and no laundry to do??????? I asked if they had a cleaner in.......it was THAT tidy Not complaining though.

Hope everyone`s doing ok

i've never found a pair of comfy boots, congrats on finding a good pair. What brand do you like?

Oh that`s a shame we don`t get to meet up with youse next year.......maybe have better luck in 2014......think DS may have ditched us by then and we can go anytime rather than his Uni schedule. Although he still plans "at the moment" to come with us. We`ll see

Got my boots from Debenhams.......a store kind of similar to Macy`s so just their home brand. I`m not really a fancy brand person with boots/clothes/ shoes.........just handbags

They are so comfy....knee high black leather and kinda ruched (sp)........no heels just a little step and I wear orthotics for PF so no fancy high heels for me But I know what you mean about getting a comfy pair.......I searched for ages before I found these.

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone is doing ok, been very busy lately. Looks like my DW will need surgery for carpal tunnel this Xmas time. The good news is we booked another trip as always for December.

It looks like you'll only be two episodes behind if you get it on 10/30...so that's not too bad.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

The new version of AHS was totally different. I have no idea where this one is going!

GO CARDINALS!!!! One more win and we're in. The World Series starts on Dana's birthday. It would be nice for the Cardinals to be there! Oh, and we'll be partying at Citywalk that night so it'd be a win win.

ONE MORE SLEEP!! The alarm is already set for 3:30 am......ugh.

Yeah I know...it was beyond strange. I like Dr. Arden...he's ruthless and an equal foe for Sister Jude...or it appears that way. Grace seems cool and I also like Shelley. I haven't deleted it from the DVR yet so I'm going to watch it again this weekend.

Hey youse.....did you make the trip to the dark side ?

We didnt make it this October, we did have a trip booked but we changed it to December.
I was gutted at missing MNSSHP AND the chance to meet up with friends ( I mean you, you did get that right !!?? ) but there is a story.


Hope all my REDHEAD friends are well.
