The Excitement is Building!

Watching the HSKS blog is making me excited to join this swap! I'll be a new student, so I'll be one of the one's awake into the late hours of the night ready with the sign up form.

I told my brother, Beauford Lestrange, about this swap and he was wondering if he should join in too. We come from a very artistic family, so my brother knits a little here and there. He knows how to sew too, but doesn't do that as often as knitting. Beau will be attending summer school this year, so he might not have the time to dedicate to a swap. Wouldn't that be fun, though, we both of us carrying on in the Slytherin Dungeon?

Well, I have to run now. Mum has said that I have to get this pigsty of a room cleaned up and organized before my acceptance owl comes from Hogwarts or I'll have to attend another school this term! Can you believe that she would threaten me with such a thing?

The Cat's Meow!

Catriona LestrangeWell, I guess an introduction of sorts is in order. My name is Catriona Lestrange. I am a 5th Year Hogwarts student, though this is the first time that I am participating in the swap activities here at Hogwarts.

I am related to the infamous Bellatrix Lestrange by way of marriage. My uncle is Rodolphus Lestrange, the husband of Bellatrix. You don't hear speak of her, but my mother - Relio Lestrange - was sister to both Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange. She is a true Slytherin at heart, but she distanced herself from her brothers when they were caught and given life sentences in Azkaban.

This term at Hogwarts promises great adventure, so I've decided to blog my way through it. I'm a little new to this whole blogging thing, but I'm a quick learner and will work at something until it provides the results that I want to see.

New students will begin arriving in just a little over a week! I'm so excited to learn new things and meet new people. I also believe that Slytherin House can give those Gryffindors a run for their money in the up coming Quidditch tournaments! Woot!
