Arthur (11 years old) is Harry Potter mad and has all sorts of home made potions, whittled wands and sundry other stuff on the shelves above his bed. He has been longing for a life-sized owl to hang on a perch from the ceiling. The school holidays were the promised time for making, and now we have only three days left. So after dinner tonight, the first paper was torn.
We are hoping that Pa won’t get a fright when he comes home from the cinema. This beginning owl swinging from the chimney may look a bit spooky in the dark!
We’re also hoping he doesn’t try to cook it.
Wish us luck. We hope it might look a bit like this…. Or of course, better!
