end of 6th year when the weekly updates stopped, and waited for the
story to be finished before picking it all up again. Given the
questions the Prof asked at the end of year 6 about the level
of 'realism' to be included, I was getting a little worried about
what might be contained.

Harry 'lost' all those years he could have been spending with
Hermione. If he had missed out on his daughter growing up as well
though, well, then I'd have been turning green and smashing things.
> Okay, panic over - at least tell us you're working on Chapter 23Well, yeah.. But, this time of the year, lots of christmas shows
after work, shopping to do.. I'm hoping for something out this
weekend. I've had some great info from Vanir, as I pestered him
mercilessly for some details about the Gerda (an old steamer that
cruises the lake). from what I found on Google, it appears the boat
travels between Näshultasjön and Eskilstuna, and from there I found
details of a great castle (Stora Sundby) that I could have Harry
take Hermione too for Dinner Saturday night. But apparently the
waterways are closed, so I'm going to have to work something else
I also asked for details for an appropriate restaurant for the
lunch. While it's easy enough to make something up, or keep the
details light and focus on the characters and dialogue, I much
prefer writing in some authentic Swedish locales, and Vanir makes it
possible. So I'm going to be Googling for some pics and info on the
restaurant (and the very interesting surrounding shops.. ;) ) and
see what else I can find.
Incidentlly, if you haven't seen them already, there are a bunch of
pics of the real life 'Western Long Street' in the photos area. :)
Since I do have some time off from Christmas, and won't be back at
work until 5th Jan, so will give me a week of real time to spend on
the story I hope.
