Yesterday we got into Melbourne at 11.30am to get tickets to see the new Harry Potter movie. Unfortunately the only tickets left were for the 11.55 pm session. So instead we went to the museum and saw the latest exhibition called " a day in Pompeii" It was very interesting and informative. There were lots of statues of the old gods and goddess and even the famous body casts of animals and people buried in the ash.
There was a small statue of Fortuna the roman goddess of prosperity and baby girl and I really liked her.
We asked her to bless us and boy did she ever!
As we had bought tickets to the late show we decided to go to the casino to try and spend some time, and it would be baby girls first visit to the gaming room.
First she put $5.00 in a pokie machine and turned it into $10.00. Then dear old hubby turned $50.00 into $140.00 playing blackjack.
We then decided that it was too long till the show so we cashed in our cinema tickets and headed home via Fountain Gate shopping center. The next available tickets for Harry were at 8.30pm so we had time to go home, get the animals bedded down and return in plenty of time.
When we left dear old hubby's wallet fell out of his back pocket and the nice lady who sat in front of us found it and rang us at home at midnight to let us know she had it . It had quite a lot of money in it and we were blown away by her honesty.
It has restored our faith in humanity.
As for Harry, well it was fantastic, although I don't know why one scene was in the movie when it was not in the book.
But after two years between drinks it was worth the wait.
If you live in or near Melbourne go and have a look at Pompeii, it is well worth it!
