This is... well, this is for those who might not've heard already. If you've been looking for me around the Ministry, well, I've resigned. A couple of weeks ago, actually. Came to realise I couldn't do all I was trying to do, and that rather than doing a good thing as a Hit Wizard, I was just becoming a bad Hit Wizard.

It's been a terribly long time since I've said anything here, I know. It's been a terrifying, horrible, scary few months, and to be honest, it will continue to be so for a long time. I can't turn around without missing Pads and Vati and Lynx.

But I've good news, and I thought that in the darkness, a bit of light is always welcome, so I thought to share it.

Papa has approved a new line of hotels. They won't be a member of the Brown chain of hotels, but rather a subsidiary with me in charge. My own line of hotels! And these won't be just any hotels, but very special ones. Every hotel will be associated with one of the Dragon Reserves, and half the proceeds from the hotel will go to helping that Reserve.

These hotels will be dragon themed. Colours, artwork, and even classes and information all about the dragons they support. So many people are terrified of dragons, and because of that we are losing these wonderful creatures to extinction. I hope that through these new programmes, we'll be able to help the wizarding world understand how we can live side by side with the dragons rather than destroying them for our purposes. That people can see the beauty in them, as well as the danger.

I'll be starting with the first in Wales, and now that Papa has approved my business plan, I am finishing up negotiations with the Reserve and searching for a place to build my new site. I'm very excited about this, and I'm glad to have something positive to do.

Hello all! Thanks to Molly, you all know that I gave birth to my little girl on Wednesday. I'd like to say thank you to everyone who wished us well. As you can see, I finally managed to get enough rest to feel well enough to pick up my journal! Today is my our last day at the hospital before going home for the first time, and I thought the occasion merited something special.

So, I'd like you all to see the first picture of my adorable little girl, Rhiannon Cara Jones. Here she is being held in my arms (thanks to Bill for bringing over my hospital bag, which had my camera in it!)

And here she is...Collapse )

Isn't she adorable? She's got my blue eyes and her father's ears (I swear!) and she already grabs my finger when I put it in her hand. We'll be settling in at home tomorrow morning, so if anyone wants to come by and see us, later in the day would probably be best, after we've had a chance to get settled. We both look forward to seeing anyone who wants to come by.

I've just returned from St Mungo's and have a very large and happy announcement to make.

Hestia gave birth to a beautiful baby girl this afternoon. Rhiannon Cara Jones joined the world at 7 pounds, 2 ounces and 19 inches long.

Mother and daughter will be at Mungo's for a few days and she asked me to tell everyone that she'd love visitors.

Did you know Quality Quidditch Supplies has a new Assistant Manager?

Well they do.

And it's me!! I'm an assistant manager! No more seven day work weeks and I might even have time to work on my own brooms now!

I couldn't believe it when Enid told me this afternoon. Dickey has decided to retire and if I take care of things well enough.. I can be full manager by Christmas!

Good things happen to good people who wait. I've been a little lax on finding new employment under the guise that I'm resetting my schedule into something less vampiric and reevaluating my CV, but it looks like there's no need.

In a move that ranks in the Top 5 of the Best Birthday Presents Ever list, my mate Lucas from Summer Arts School just took a director position at Whitechapel.

He gave me space AND FOUNDATION MONEY. For an installation.

I've got three weeks to come up with a dozen or so pieces and I've already got a theme (and no I'm not telling). If I'm less than social, well. Now you know why.

I stopped into the Nine Ploughs earlier and was told he's not been in today. The woman behind the bar said she thought he was ill, something about his evening coffee, and might be in hospital. She didn't know which, said all the one's she'd rang didn't list him as admitted. Not that she'd be able to ring St Mungo's at all.

So, Zach, you skiving off work or should I be worrying?

Happy Birthday, Pansy!!!!


I hope you have a great day and look out for a special delivery later this afternoon, okay?

Summer is nearly upon us. I love the summer. Something about the way the air smells is just... very nice.

Course, nearing the end of the season, I suppose I'll take any comfort I can get now that I'm wired something fierce. One match left until the Cup Rounds start. We've got a cup to defend.

No rest for the wicked.
