I’m afraid I am not a Potterite. I haven’t read a single page, let alone a book, and fell asleep when the film was on TV. However, fun is the name of the game, so I’m going to have a go!
This week the book OR the movie is “Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone”
Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
- Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet.

(“Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror) The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Professor Dumbledore, when you gaze into it, it shows the “deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” You have chosen to look in the mirror. What do you see?

Now for the ‘traditionalists’ who like “just the questions m’am (or sir)”. Here’s three random “Plain” Questions:
