I am so very sad. Two things were finished today. My PS2 Jaywalkers and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (I will keep all book details on my 2007 Reads page so others can avoid spoilers)
Doesn’t Kira look like she has been Stupefied? That is pretty much how I am feeling to have reached the end of this series.
I re-read the last 4 chapters this afternoon and am seriously thinking of restarting the whole book tonight. I was reading in such a headlong rush, I am sure I missed out on subtleties — also, I am not ready to say good bye. Isn’t that something, to become so attached to fictional characters?
To help console myself I bought some Potter-esque yarn this afternoon. I do have my Severus Snape Gentleman’s Fancy socks and Nagini (doncha just love that the colourway I am using for Nagini is called Monster?!) to complete. I am planning to make Horcrux and Bellatrix socks too. Heck maybe I’ll even make Fawkes… An HP Summer of Socks. Sigh.
I have had a busy week/weekend and so couldn’t get to the book until Monday (which is why I ‘went dark’ the last 6 days! I couldn’t risk an inadvertant spoiler at this late stage).
I got a new haircut:
Boy is it hard to get a good picture of dark hair.
And I got to see Kai walking! Look at that guy.
I spent the weekend with my cousins and….take a look at what the Jaywalkers went through this Saturday.
Do not even ask me how she managed it! Somehow Tiggly (short for Tiger Lily) got my poor yarn tangled in a desperate fashion in the minutes it took me to walk to the kitchen and get a drink but that took nearly an hour to undo. Good thing she is so cute — the 9 lives help too.
