What about?
Who needs karma when you know you're great already?

Does anyone have any idea if this will delay the delivery of the new Harry Potter book? If so the man from our local garage will be really upset.

Thankyou goldencup. Smile
 

It was just that he mentions it every time we go for petrol, we've been having the countdown for weeks now, and he gets more and more excited each week. Big%20smile

And of course the thought of a grown man breaking down in the middle of a petrol station, when all I've gone in for is a few pounds worth of unleaded holds no appeal at all. LOL

LOL Well I know that the library copies (all 100 of them) are arriving by special courier in a locked case to be opened at midnight.  We're having a special HP party.

Ooooh you lucky things. That means if you're fast readers you will be able to have finished the book before the library even opens in the morning!

You will be one of the very first people to have read the new Harry Potter goldencup!

I hope you have a really fantastic party. Are you dressing up and having things like Hogwarts sandwiches and owl shaped biscuits and Harry Potter punch to drink?

And if it is fancy dress who are you going as? My mum says I remind her of moaning Myrtle. LOL

Oh I wish I knew someone who was having a Harry Potter party now!

I want to come!Cry

Have a brilliant time. Big%20smile

I won't be one of the first people to read it as I haven't reserved a copy.  I may buy one at some point as my sons have all of the others but I haven't even read the last two yet.


I don't think the staff will be wearing fancy dress (I hope not anyway) but the kids who've reserved the book are invited to do so. 

 

I'm sure it will be a fun evening.Wink
