When the National Lottery started over here in 1994, I used to play a £1 ticket on each draw, even when it increased from 1 draw to 2 in a week. I started off doing the same numbers on each draw, but never had any joy, so eventually I changed it to just getting a lucky dip ticket, but even then I never got more than 3 numbers. Well, once, in Newbury, 2 of us shared tickets, and one of those got 4 numbers, and I think we won just over £100, wow!
Soon after I left there in 2001, I stopped doing the lottery altogether, and apart from a couple of times, when there’s been a big rollover, I havent bothered since! Well, now, strictly I’ve been in a syndicate at work (now in 3rd year), for which I’m a few pounds down over 2 years, but not lost very much. And since then, I havent bothered with any other tickets.
But yes, tomorrow is one of those special draws, where instead of the normal 1 million pound prize draw on the Euro millions draw, there are going to be 40 winners. Now given I’ve never won anything major in my life (and I’m nearly 61!), I think its fair to say that my chances of being one of those 40 would be negligible, if not less! But fine, the disabled old crock is still just wondering, if for the sake of £2.50, I could win a million (no, dont even suggest the Euro millions jackpot!), which would allow me to retire in comfort, a few years early, is it silly to consider buying a ticket? Yes, is the honest answer, but still, maybe just once, lol…?
So, if you dont get a blog on Sunday, then maybe I won the million, and I’ve headed for Algarve, to buy my little apartment in the sun, before Brexit? No, seriously, dont worry, you’ll get a blog on Sunday, I’m sure. But will I buy a ticket, hmm?
OK, video time. I know nothing about this group, just one of those random you tube searches on the word million, and this came up. Its 80’s, its not awful, and no, I’m not one of the women in the video, lol.
