I find my wine cellar has become somewhat depleted. I am overdue a holiday; perhaps I shall travel to Tuscany.

Feb. 2nd, 2019

It is a shame we do not get any reprieve between the tacky glitter of Christmas and the pink hideousness of Valentine's Day. At least it will be over soon, and Easter is slightly less obnoxious.

Are you still interested in buying my house?

I can't believe I still haven't seen my grandchild.

Oct. 21st, 2018

I'm considering selling my house. It seems far too large for my needs and I may be less lonely better off in a smaller property. It does seem like a lot of hassle, though. And perhaps I will miss the memories, painful though they are.

Jun. 17th, 2018

Already, the sun is annoying me.

Nothing. They sent back the birthday presents I owled them, and today, nothing. They're so ungrateful.

Apr. 22nd, 2018

Happy birthday, Aurelian.


A year since the triplets were born - well, since Penny went into labour, anyway. That means almost a year since my other children last spoke to me. I wonder if I could work it out to the exact day. I think it was in the journals when we last communicated, so it should be easy enough. If we're considering the last time they spoke to me in person, that will be more than a year, because I hadn't heard from them since the triplets were born.

I believe this was my first birthday since they were born that Amycus and Alecto haven't tried to annoy me as a birthday present.


I would like to see the children.

Aug. 13th, 2017

I am tired of this weather, and this holiday. All of the children running around are as tiresome as can be. They should get back to school and out of my hair. I cannot wait for September so I can go out in peace. I do not wish to be confined to my house. The walls are closing in.

Amycus and Alecto

Penny isn't here, you know. If you're avoiding her, you don't need to stay away from the house.

Although, you should really go and see her just to meet your siblings the once. It's only polite.

I'm trying to remember how it felt, to want children. I know there was a time, before Amycus and Alecto were born. Now there is another on the way - possibly two more - and all I feel is relief that I no longer have to force myself on Penny. She's a sweet girl, I think she will be a good mother. I'm glad I can forget about the whole thing now and get back to my work. If only those children of mine hadn't been Death Eaters I would never have needed to be troubled with it at all.

This is rather awkward to talk about, but hopefully you'll forgive me, in the circumstances. I have been deliberating on the issue of enforced procreating, and to put it bluntly, I am an old man. I don't think I have any choice but to pay somebody to have a child with me. I was wondering, do you know of anybody at the brothel who might be interested? Perhaps somebody dissatisfied with their chosen career who would prefer to simply be a mother. I have enough money to make them quite comfortable.

After the meeting

I am lost for words.

Jan. 9th, 2016

Parents across the country heave a sigh of relief as they have peace and quiet again. I think none of them can be as relieved as me. It's been a long 'holiday.'

Oct. 17th, 2015

All week people seem to be snickering behind my back and saying something about James Bond. Have I missed some cultural reference of today's youth or something?

Aug. 8th, 2015

Have the hoardes of horny teens died down yet?

Jul. 6th, 2015

Ugh, the heat.

Feb. 1st, 2015

I can't imagine what it must be like to live in Indonesia right now. One thousand bodies being recovered per day. I would be scared to go down to the beach.

Nov. 2nd, 2014

Trick. Always trick. Read the sign on the door.

Jul. 27th, 2014

It's the same every year: Hogwarts finishes for the summer and suddenly we are all overrun with children. Children, everywhere, even places they have no right to be. I wish their parents could keep better control of them.

Even the Maison was busy this week with - well, if not technically children, they were certainly loud, obnxious and immature enough to be so. I do not understand why people so young would feel the need to visit a brothel. I wanted to tell them they had their whole lives ahead of them to meet somebody, they do not need to debase themselves with the first floozy they come across. I knew better than to try; unfortunately, the young never listen to their elders.

Warded to Rava Dolohov
I just wanted to apologise again for my misunderstanding last night. I saw a young lady in a brothel and I made assumptions about her profession. I was mistaken, and I apologise. I hope I was not too rude.

May. 6th, 2014

I can certainly understand the desire to not have your injured relatives named in a newspaper. I hope they all recover soon, but I do not need to know their names to hope that.

Are they making your brother teach or is he permitted to rest some more?

Carrow children

Where are you? Why aren't you back yet?
