25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 11. What would you see in the mirror of Erised?

I think I'd have my own business.  Probably a cute little tea room and bookshop.  Somewhere cosy for people to hang out when they're shopping.

And I'd live on a farm with my Welsh Cob, Shetland pony and a donkey.

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 10. If you had the choice, which Hallow would you choose?

I think it'd have to be the invisibility cloak.

I don't really want all of the power the elder wand would give me, too much responsibility.  The resurrection stone would be nice for a bit but nothing can really bring people back from the dead.

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 9. Favourite Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher?

If your favourite isn't Lupin then there's something wrong.

I always loved his lesson in the third book and I absolutely loved how JK Rowling described his exam.  It sounded like so much fun!!

When will I blog regularly?!

It's probably not bothering any of you but it's bothering me!

I suck at keeping a schedule for this blog...  Although it might help if the last week and a half hadn't been spent at university more than my house.  I'm not even exaggerating.

And then the second I stop working, I mean literally about half an hour after I finished an essay, I get tiny chicken disease!!!

The hell!  Tiny chickens get out of my head now please!

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 8. Severus Snape - good guy who did bad? Or bad guy who did good?

Oh err wow...  I don't think he was ever just a bad or a good guy.

I mean it's hard to decipher how something could be so black and white.  I don't think anyone is just good or bad,  people are just varying shades of grey to me.

When it comes down to it though he stuck to his morals and protected those he loved, and for that he's earned my respect.

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 7. You've graduated Hogwarts, passed your NEWTS, now what?

Oh gosh!!!  Well I think now I'd either get a job at Flourish and Blotts or Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour in Diagon Alley.

Either that or I'd become Hagrid's apprentice and help him look after all the creatures in the grounds of Hogwarts and help teach classes!  That would be so much fun!

Christmas is coming!

It's December now so I can officially start getting excited about Christmas!!!! Yay!!!

To celebrate I decided to make myself a little Christmassy beverage.

Christmas Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate
1/4tsp Ground ginger
1/4tsp Ground cinnamon
1/4tsp Ground nutmeg
1/4tsp Ground cloves

This is so simple a monkey could do it.  All you need to do is put in however much hot chocolate powder the packet says.  Add the spices and then proceed to make your hot chocolate how your normally do!  It's wonderfully warming and is cheaper than going out to Costa or Starbucks.
For extra Christmas cheer add some marshmallows and whipped cream!  Scrumptious!

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 6. Favourite movie?

I think my favourite movie is actually Half Blood Prince.  Deathly Hallows is amazing but it's incredibly upsetting!  I can't watch it without blubbing like a baby (in both parts).

I remember crying with laughter the first time I watched this film in the cinema.  Dumbledore with his knitting patterns, Ron being drugged with the love potion, Cormac McLaggen throwing up on Snape's shoes.  It's so much more light hearted than films 5 and 7 whilst still retaining that dark edge.

My favourite part has to be when Harry and Luna are on the way to Slughorn's Christmas party and she says she's never been to that part of the castle whilst awake at least.  She sleep walks so she wears shoes to bed.  I'm not sure why but I find Luna just hilarious!

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 5. What's your wand made of? What's the core?

I'm going to tell you what Pottermore gave me as my wand as, to me, it seems to fit me perfectly.

Okay so my wand is 10 inches long, red oak with a unicorn hair core.  Here's some explanations from Pottermore and Mr Ollivander.

"Red Oak
You will often hear the ignorant say that red oak is an infallible sign of its owner’s hot temper. In fact, the true match for a red oak wand is possessed of unusually fast reactions, making it a perfect duelling wand. Less common than English oak, I have found that its ideal master is light of touch, quick-witted and adaptable, often the creator of distinctive, trademark spells, and a good man or woman to have beside one in a fight. Red oak wands are, in my opinion, among the most handsome."

"Unicorn Hair
Unicorn Hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages.  Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts.  They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard.
Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair my 'die' and need replacing."

25 Day Harry Potter Challenge - 4. Favourite Harry Potter pick up line?

I know there are loads of pickup lines floating out in the internet but I'm going to pick one straight from the book, when Ron needed a date for the Yule Ball, simply because it amused me so much!

"Hermione.  Neville's right, you are a girl...well, you could come with one of us!"

Ron knows how to please the ladies!
