I have never read a single Harry Potter book.
But Miss 8 is LOVING them. She didn't start reading them until Immy started talking about them. I wasn't really sure at first that Immy was talking about Harry Potter, she was telling me that she loved the story that Dad told her at bed time but I knew he wasn't reading Harry to her.
Instead Mr H had got sick of making up bed time stories and instead decided to tell Immy the story of Harry Potter, it gave him weeks of bedtime story fodder and eventually they sat and watched the first movie together. Miss 8 then noticed the books in our book shelf and decided to start reading.
The next thing I know she has two new friends at school and is begging for a wand because the three of them are spending every spare moment playing Harry Potter games.
That wand was the first Harry (Hermoine) item to arrive.
Then a friend cleaned out their toy box and gave us another wand (apparently, much better than ours).
Then I had to order a Hermoine cape, which required me to dust off a very unused sewing machine and reduce it from the Adult size small to the children's size small, because who knew that adults are out there buying Hermoine capes on ebay???
I have been begged for Harry Potter chocolate frogs and Harry Potter beans. (Confusion number 2: I am a tight arse and refuse to pay $5 for one chocolate frog or a teeny box of jelly beans).
Can you guess who Miss 8 dressed as for this year's book week?
And which pj's she wants for Christmas?
There is a bit of Potter madness in the house at the moment.
So when I got the email asking if I wanted to giveaway some tickets to the Potted Potter show, it was an easy answer.
Potted Potter is a comedy act where two actors go through the entire seven books in a couple of hours on stage.
Here is the 70 second trailer to show you what the show is about. I haven't seen it yet so I can't tell you what it's like.
But I DO have tickets to giveaway.
Do you have any Harry Potter fans at your place, perhaps you are one yourself? Would you like to come along?
