Nerd Gift of Christmas

I hope you’ve all had a lovely time opening gifts over Christmas, if you’ve been a good girl or boy πŸ™‚ For any other Harry Potter fans out there – I think there may be a couple – I had to share with you this fantastic stocking filler that came courtesy of my muggle sister (not Dumbledore unfortunately).



For little old me, who is always complaining about not having enough time to get things done, I’m hoping that this might be able to help me get more hours out of the day! It’s hung above my writing desk in my little bookish corner – all I need to do now is work out how the heck it works – the instructions from J K Rowling don’t seem to be working πŸ™‚

Did you get anything super nerd-worthy or bookish in your stocking?

    I got a boxed set of the The Iron Man films and The Avengers Assemble, so I’m good on the superhero front for a while.

    That’s a cool present…but you did this post yesterday and the day before, so maybe you’ve got it stuck in a loop? πŸ™‚

      Ooh – I like the super theme – I got Guardians of Galaxy and new Xmen πŸ™‚

      So far, I’ve lived 2015 four times over and have yet to master book publishing to JK Rowling success levels…debating going back in time to coffee shop in Edinburgh c. 2005 and beating her to the punch πŸ™‚

      I can’t believe that! πŸ™‚ Maybe we should go back in time to the Dept of Mysteries and stop Sirius from being zapped – I always wanted him to still be there for Harry. Or maybe, if we went back even further, we could give Tom Riddle a hug and introduce him to yoga – and the wizarding world would be a whole other place πŸ™‚

        Yoga? HAHA, I just nearly peed my pants with laughter! Now why didn’t I think of that?

        I highly approve of this mission.
        I accept this mission.
        Let’s reconvene at 1300 tomorrow. πŸ˜‰

        P.S. I’m still sad about Sirius too. :/

        ha ha – have just returned from our mission and glad to confirm we were successful – Tom Riddle is currently chilling with a glass of wine in his yoga pants, having mastered the reclined goddess pose πŸ™‚ our work is done

        OK – give me a minute…

        Done! All is back to how it was – except I hid some galleons in Ron’s sock drawer, just because πŸ˜‰ I don’t think it will ruin the space-time continuum so we’re all good
