Mireille is very bright. It is astounding how easily children can learn languages; she has an astonishing comprehension of English, Swedish and French already. She will be two in a little over a month, but we mean for her to be well-prepared to attend Beauxbatons.

We treat Lukas the same, of course. He is more curious than Mireille was at this age -- she more wanted to be held or read to, he chooses to explore the house and the things within it instead. Marta has her hands full, as it is said. Children are a blessing, though.

Valentine's Day approaches and I think I am well-prepared, if my dearest happens to be reading.

It was a fine funeral.

Severus always was a bright one. Indeed, our son was born today.

Lukas Augustin Lestrange was born at 5:05 PM on the 13th of June, 1980. He and his sister already get on splendidly.

Mireille Linnéa and Lukas Augustin; I daresay that we have really named our children well.

I have also heard rumour that Daphne Nott has had Erastus's heir. Though I would normally not pass on rumours, the midwives are quite keen about this sort of thing. I would expect to see an announcement in the papers tomorrow. All congratulations to them, of course. A child is a gift.

It is so inspiring to wake up and realise that your day is to be spent on a PR nightmare.

I suspect I will not be home until quite late. A pity.

Today I was informed that I am to be the assistant to Philip Sloper, head of Development at St. Mungo's.

My daughter Mireille spoke her first word.

We are going to have an heir. We are!

2:03 pm - 18 August 1979 -- Private
James Potter is locked in my cellar under Imperius.

This has promise. I will have to contact the Dark Lord. Potter appears to be capable of fighting Imperius, but I have also instructed the nurse to drug him with a particular potion I chose, and attend to his wounds from the fight. My mundane work must go on but once night falls I will be prepared to do my Lord's work.

If such things continue I may just become an optimist.

I loathe England.

Crawling with halfbreeds, the language lacks any subtlety, filth everywhere, could they be any worse?

It is, I think, time to revisit old pastimes with my wife.

Though I work in Administration and not the... hands-on sections, it is undeniable that St. Mungo's is growing astoundingly full of the sick. By all indications, this is rare. The usual ailment of a patient is the wrong potion ingredient, charm, or having been on the other end of such malice or idiocy.

I believe (as my dear wife has said) that there is merit to the theory put forth in The Daily Prophet, and I am glad to see the pages of such a reputable media source no longer clogged with conspiracy theories that could as easily be seen in The Anthem. Now, perhaps not all Muggles can spread such a thing, but to allow a Muggleborn to wander from world to world (or any of those who have regular contact with Muggles for whatever reason), and drag Muggle disease behind them, is just ludicrous in my opinion.

My wife and our child are in good health. All is well for me.

I expect that few of you, man or woman, have more reason to be happy than I myself do at this very moment.

I find myself to be well-suited to the atmosphere of St. Mungo's administration. Though I would help those with the dirtier work if I had to, I appreciate my much cleaner work at the moment. I can only hope and work towards things getting better, if that is at all possible.

My wife and I are now living in Dorset, a lovely house on the coast, and everything is rather peaceful. Many thanks to those who sent us gifts, we have found ourselves pleased with the majority of them.

In one week, I will be married.

I am pleased with how it appears to be turning out, and how it is bound to end. Of course, we will see.

Rodolphus, I would like to speak to you at your convenience.

My NEWT scores were satisfactory; not perfect, but close enough that I may forgive myself for my few, yet important, mistakes. Man is fallible, after all. They will suffice to get me where I need to be.

Twenty-seven days until our wedding. It does not seem like six months or more since I proposed, yet here we are. Things are moving along well, and I would expect no less.

In short, things are as they should be.

I await my last examination, my Potions NEWT. I have little fear, merely excitement to finally determine my future with these exams and deal with no more suspense. I will admit that I am in part sad to leave this castle, not due to any of you.

Rather, my reminisce will more rely upon how lucky I was to attend Hogwarts rather than Beauxbatons, or perhaps I may have never found the cause which I hope to work towards for the rest of my life - that which is most important in times of war, the medical field, at St. Mungo's. Why, I would have gone to waste at Beauxbatons, and have been no help to those who need a ... helping hand, you might say? or guidance, in these times of violence.

It is difficult, yet I am happy to grasp the idea that my time at Hogwarts is drawing to a close. Only a month left, and then I need never return to Britain.

I have begun all preparations to apply for a position at St. Mungo's, but naturally must prepare as well for the NEWTs which will determine if I am even allowed. I have no fear of that, however.

I am so anxious to hear news of Potter's Dueling Club - after all, before I emerge into the dangerous environment that is wizarding Britain, I must be fully prepared, yes?

current mood: okay

The castle is, for once, quiet.

Thank you.
