Everything's so grand. I never expected magic could do so much. And the staircase moved while I was on it! I nearly fell off!
There's a girl named Lily in my House who said she's going to tell me all about this wizarding sport, Quidditch. Which is great, because I don't know what I'll do without football. And my comics, which are all at home.
My bed here is nicer than my one at home! I can't wait to write Mum and Dad and tell them everything. But...how do I get my letter sent? I've seen some people have owls, and that man said that's how post is delivered, but I haven't got one of my own. Dad didn't seem keen on one. I never knew it, but I guess he really doesn't like owls.
