Conclusion: lucky cats DEFINITELY work. I didn't repeat the experiment but obviously this ground-breaking scientific  result will be the subject of papers for years to come.

NEXT! Little teeny, tiny horseshoe necklace.

The next lucky item was a box of Lucky Charms. You know I love my imported American food, so this was my favourite item in Ladbrokes' box of tricks. 
My luck was out though. Because the goodies arrived last week, it seems a certain five year old has eaten all my Lucky Charms. Maybe rubbing his belly would bring luck, but he's at school, so I held the enchanted cardboard box & placed my bets.

Conclusion: no idea. Cardboard boxes are lucky?

Do lucky charms work? Not in my eyes. 
Does my son like Lucky Charms cereal? Too much. 
Is playing roulette on Ladbrokes easy for a beginner like me? Certainly. 
Do I have a career as a professional gambler? No. 

Maybe if I'd had a lucky rabbit's foot..... 
Next time.
