Ex-Professor Bellingham here, thought I’d send word. I’m doing pretty well, thanks for asking, and so is my wife and my son.
We’ve settled in quite nicely. The cottage took a little while to set up (Aurora hardly helped at all because for some reason, the mention of needing Transfiguration set her off- I guess its a dragon, post-natal kind of thing perhaps) but we have it just the way we want it now. I won’t say where it is, because I don’t want any of you coming over for a cuddle with Dante and overheating the poor boy, but it’s very far away in a lovely place.
The sticks have been keeping me up to date with all things Hogwarts. Apparently things have been pretty dangerous recently, with some… pear wolves? Now I don’t know what they are, but please, stay safe, don’t do anything rash, and listen to your professors! They might not all be as careful and level-headed as I was but they know what’s best, and what’s best is not doing anything stupid. About eleven of you have The Grim watching you right now, so I’d be doubly careful. Yes, you, you know who you are.
Other than the pear wolves, I hope you’re all doing well and I miss you all. I keep trying to persuade Aurora to come take a trip up to Hogsmeade sometime, but she says its too cold. Bit weird for an ice dragon, I know, but perhaps its still a post-natal thing.
