  1. YES! Love this episode - one of my favourites!
  2. Took me a while to remember this one (was convinced I didn't know any French films/books/plays until I read the replies) but I absolutely adore the film Chocolat. Makes me cry every time and it's from a time when Johnny Depp was hot and it was ok to fancy him!
  3. Most weekdays I'm available from HOL time 6pm-11pm and weekends from 10am-11pm though I can push that to around 12 or 1 on a Friday or Saturday. I'm going away this week as it's half term but after Sunday I'm looking forward to taking part
  4. May is kicking my ass in the real world - feel like I've not got time to breathe! Normal service should be resumed soon (I hope!)

      I know how you feel May & June is kicking my butt. My schedule is just to much lately. I feel like giving something up, but what? All the things I do are so important.

  5. Ooh yes! It's me Hi Tarma! Erm... Anna?
  6. Nope, I'm back! Amy?
  7. I managed to get an owl written tonight - I had the choice of two to complete this month and I chose to work on History of Magic. The lesson was really interesting and it was nice to learn a little more about the aftermath of the Salem Witch Trials as well as to try and put myself into the mind of someone who was there at the time to see how I would react when faced with a difficult decision. So that's two OWLS completed this term so far - one more and I get my Quill and have officially done enough to move onto my NEWTs next year (which I'm sure are too scary to even think about right now). I can't believe I've only got a year and a bit left before I have to think about getting a job and moving into the real world, away from Hogwarts. Can't I just stay here forever where it's safe?
  8. So, in the past 10 days I've done zero HOL work which means it is a good thing I did all my monthly assignments right at the beginning of April. It is a little worrying that I have two OWLs to do this month so I'm going to pick one and get that done over the weekend. Looks like I'll definitely be finishing them up next year anyway so I might as well pace myself (yes I know I'm already a 6th year and have only done 4 OWLs but at least they've all been Outstanding!). The book club is running a writing event during May so I'm definitely going to join in with that. It's been a long time since I've written as much as the target word count and it's a little bit overwhelming to be honest. I'm hoping there will be loads of hints about where and how to get started and how to pace myself during the month. I know what I'm like - I put things off until the last minute and then there's no time to get things done. I was thinking about writing some non-fiction instead of a story but I'm not sure what my topic should be. I have recently become really interested in muggle conspiracy theories so it would be really interesting to put something together based on those, but the extra research that would be involved might take too much time to get the writing done during the month. Probably best to stick to something I know quite a bit about already or just bite the bullet and start writing a story. Watch this space!
