A Little Luck

Last night while preparing to go out I asked Steve if he had done the lottery (which he normally does without fail) he hadn't. I told him to take a pound out of my purse and spend it on the lottery.

This morning he set off to obtain milk and the newspaper from our local shop. He returned to say we had won five pounds on the thunderball.

My motto is nothing ventured nothing gained and this proves it. We only paid a pound and won five pounds. This has put a smile on my face for the day.

I woke up with a cold and felt dreadful but there was no point lying in bed feeling sorry for myself. I had some cold cure and got up.

I am now puzzling over the Chairmans' Challenge in my head there are three ways I could tackle it. I am going to take the advice from "Wannabe a Writer" and think about it as long as possible before I actually write it.

I can always draft them all and then decide which one I like best.

Best wishes.



  1. Well done on your lottery win - don't spend it all at once :) xx

  2. I'm glad my humble verse cheered you up. Can I also suggest that you might (as a writer) find some benefit in a series of posts I did, called ``Telling Write From Wrong''.

    If you want the link, just let me know.....

  3. In reply to your comment, Fee - just leave a comment on my blog with your email address and then delete the comment immediately if you don't want anyone else to see your email details.

    That way only I will have access to it and I can email the link to you directly.
