I didn't respond to the toad's letter, but I might have possibly told her how I really felt. Using words best not repeated. You know me! Completely unable to be subtle even at the best of times!
I suppose I should also explain my absence. You know I went away with Neville for the week, and well. We sort of eloped in Rome. It was all very Gryffindorish and romantic, but the owls and Patronus did not reach us regarding the battle. I'll be into the office as soon as I shower and change my clothes.
Any word on Cass? Or Cormac? I only got an owl saying they were both in the Shack.
