Please, do not worry. You know birthdays are not something I really celebrate, but thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Cass did whatever he could, however, even he can't keep me away from the office for the entire day. In fact, even you and your wonderful gift can't keep me away, not when things are so uncertain in Britain. Maybe one day, I will be able to take that trip, but not while Umbridge and Lestrange are out there.
The second gift is very much appreciated, if only because I don't have to give her the satisfaction of asking for permission to buy books. Really that woman is a menace but hopefully it's temporary.
Thank you again.
PS I have no idea what you mean. I can ignore a lot of things. I learnt by growing up in my family.
