I don't even know why I'm making such a fuss over it anymore. Really. I can always replace it, even though the copy won't have nearly as much value (sentimental wise) as the original.
And I really shouldn't be writing, unless it NEWT's related. Only a couple months left until I've got to write them. There's just so much we have to know for them, Merlin. Will be quite glad once they're over, needless to say.
Haven't heard from Mother yet. Am getting rather worried. Is she taking my warning seriously at all?
