Aww I would double like that post if I could OES - awesome stuff. Glad to see that you're raising your kids properly :D . Laughed at the last line too. As an aside- how have you been? It has been ages!
I’ve been good.

I have them this week and I can’t wait to read them more Harry potter. :heart:

Glad you have been well.

I remember Bet on Blue (another SC reg who has been MIA) talking about reading them to his kids :) . At the time , yours were too young, but wow time has flown.

Are you reading the standard editions, or did you get the illustrated ones? :)

That was only a year ago. They weren’t too young just not interested.

I bought them the illustrated one for Christmas. Decided to try and get them into HP. Won’t have luck with the elder one but the younger one is really excited. He was watching a movie the other day and I asked him if he wanted to keep watching or read Harry Potter. He kept watching but at bedtime he asked if he could have Harry Potter too! :tearsofjoy:

I love the illustrated ones :) . I was disappointed that they pushed back the release of Illustrated Goblet of Fire. I hope your older one becomes interested later on now that his younger brother is into them. As how he ended up getting both the movie and the bedtime Harry Potter story - smart kid ;)

Been basically stuck in bed sick since Saturday until today and I’ve watched all 8 movies.

Definitely felt rushed for the final 3 now that I look back on it, nostalgic though.

That sucks. Get better + back to the gym mate.

(when you are better- ease into it too)

Haven’t stopped going to the gym. Should have said bed ridden except for an hour and a half to go to the gym and a 30 minute sauna afterwards to try and sweat the cold out ;).

Thanks though! :)

Just a thought.

Would a Harry Potter prequel work and have it centered (weird word centered) around James and Lily Potter?
If you are going to explore that time period I think it would be better to focus on marauders vs snape, with lily being a minor character.

Marauders vs Snape would be good. Lily would start as a minor character but would become a major part further on into the story (later seasons, books, movies).

It would also be interesting to see how Voldemort was viewed during this time as it's the period in which he was building power in a covert manner and his reign of terror hadn't begun.

Awesome! Hope you enjoyed the play and Melbourne in general.
I'm seeing it in two weeks. I actually can't wait!
We were blown away by the special effects, acting and humour. I would love to see it again sometime.
Melbourne in general was great too - loved the atmosphere at our game on Saturday night.
I'm sure you'll love it in 2 weeks :)

Just saw the cursed child. It's incredible. Words can not describe how good it is. I've never seen a group that large ensnared in a story like that. Amazing
I'm still gobsmacked at the 'magic' and how they did certain things.
Really glad you loved it as much as we did!

SarahSmiles , did you get Gyton Grantley as Ron? We had one of the understudies (Mark Dickinson? IIRC). He was great. But I was curious as to what Gyton was like!!!
Yeah, we had Gyton, his flawless delivery provided perfect comic relief in what turned out to be quite a dark play
