I heard about Snape - worst luck! Still, without You Know Who around maybe he'll be better behaved.
It's hard to believe the funeral was a week ago already. George is re-opening Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes tomorrow. I'll be helping out for awhile, although he might hire Katie. She came up to him at the funeral and she's been by twice, as has Neville. He and Ginny sure are full of stories. They and Luna did more last year than you, me and Hermione got up to the six years before.
Y' know, Harry, I'm not sure if Neville isn't sweet on Ginny. She sure does laugh a lot with him and they go on long walks. Even though Luna is staying with us, they don't talk much to her, either. She's been spending time with Charlie, actually. They've been sharing stories about dragons and nargles and what not. Charlie's the only one that seems able to chat with her without rolling his eyes. Wouldn't it be funny if they got together?
Hermione wrote the other day. Did she write you? Her parents weren't where she left them. Turns out they went on holiday! Funny, isn't it? They headed off to Mexico the day before she got there for a month's vacation. It's summer here, but winter there and their landlady said they fancied being somewhere warm. Hermione was trying to decide if she was going to try to find them or just sit tight and wait. I told her she should wait and maybe I could come over after George is settled. I've never been to Australia and it could be fun, being with Hermione and maybe seeing the sights.
I hear from Dad that Kings is doing really good work in the Ministry. Did you hear Dad is in charge of his department now? He was promoted and given a proper pay rise. He hadn't got one in years and Kings reckoned it was overdue.
Even that hasn't lifted Mum's spirits any, though. She's been spending a lot of time in the orchard and in the kitchen. If she's not cooking, she's planting. The only thing that makes her smile is news from Bill. Fleur is due to have the baby any day now. I can't wait. It might be just the thing to cheer Mum up.
Please write her, and write me back. Tell me how the castle is doing and if the snake poison helped Snape's greasy hair problem. It couldn't hurt I guess.
