Ha! Neither Ministry of Magic officials nor anyone supporting the Dark Lord can read this entry, or many of the others I will be making. I discussed the issue of the MOM requirement that I not use a Concealment spell on my entries with Professor Flitwick earlier today. I explained to him that I see that this could be a useful place to keep a record of my thoughts and experiences, even those I would prefer not to share with MOM officials or others.
After our discussion, (and what a *charmer* that man is!), we came up with a special charm/spell combination that will protect my entries from prying eyes without a Concealment spell or the use of Muggle filters. When an unwelcome reader comes along, the entry content simply appears to be something innocuous. Only a person I wouldn't mind sharing the entry with will see it as I actually wrote it.
Oh, how I love loopholes in rules sometimes! :)
The Walker Shortbread biscuits I ordered a week ago did not appear in today's owl post. My tartan biscuit tin is nearly empty! I do hope they show up soon, or I shall have to make do with biscuits from the kitchen. Not that the house elves don't make fine biscuits, but they are not the same as the Walker Shortbreads.
