Nev,

I hope I didn't overstep, but my mum teaches infant school and has worked with loads of children over the years, so I asked her about that dyslexia thing you think you might have. I didn't say who, just said it was for a friend.

Anyhow, she said there are things you can do to help but she wanted to meet you in person to ask some questions. I guess she used to have to be careful, because some of the things you can do are derived from Muggle educational theory, but the person in charge of the infant school teachers now (Sarah Yaxley?) is really young and, in Mum's words, "wouldn't know educational theory from broomstick manufacturing" as long as they salute the Protectorate properly and sing the correct songs.

So I guess what I'm saying is...would you like to come over to mine for dinner and talk to my mum?

It has really flown by!

We've had our first rehearsals for the spring revue, and I'm really excited about singing the part of Agnes! We're still in the early stages though--no pun intended! Mr Krumgold had a lot of notes for me, so I have a lot to work on. I just keep reminding myself that he wouldn't have chosen me for the part if he didn't think I could do it.

In some ways, though, I think the people who have the hardest job are going to be our costumers and stagewizards. They're making us look like real Hogwarts students from different eras, and Greengrass and Moon are putting a lot of effort into making everything look authentic!

And of course, all of us in O.W.L. year this year are already starting to think about our exams in the spring. I'm trying to think about them just enough that to be diligent in my revising and not so much that I start to panic!

Our YPL project in the village schools should be interesting, although I suppose there won't be time to paint murals or anything like that, which would be wizard. My mum owled me to say that she thought a group might be coming to her school in New London, even though it's not technically a village.
