Nice to be shocked by something good:)
Last night I won $2550 at the sailing club draw for members. Just before the excitement I'd been discussing financial worries with my friend.
We'd decided to go to the draw because the money had to be won that night. Usually several member numbers are randomly generated and called out but if the person isn't there the draw money rises until it reaches $2550. Last night everyone present in the club had the chance to win in a special ticket draw.
I'd written my name down for the special draw.
Then I saw my membership number come up on the screen. It was amazing to see 204...then the final zero come up.
So no special draw (where I had about a one in 200 chance) with the winner being me! Apparently there are over 5000 members so I was very lucky. I'll supply my bank details to the club on Monday.
This win will help during an expected lean time over the next few months - also I've booked a package of 10 driving lessons costing $490 so paying for that won't be a stress.
Feel a bit seedy this morning though. Up too late and too much red wine and champagne.
Wonder if my John had an influence on this or not.
