I won £25 in a competition!!

On Monday morning I spied a white envelope by the front door with my name written on it by hand. "Ooh, who's this?"

Inside was a cheque for £25 payable to me!! OH the draught!!!!

A note!

Hello [Stigmum]

Congratulations for your tip here is your cheque from [Travel Company]
Regards

Lovely handwriting!!

£25!!!! Like winning the lottery! Camelot's never blown in that much for me!

And for a tip!

What tip?!

When?

I shall end my day's blogging with this post. I have to sign on tomorrow, demonstrate I've been looking for work....

It's a challenge blogging sometimes because I have positioned myself as someone harshly judged by society so feel I must tell what that life is like..on benefits..statutorily homeless..

American Resident got me thinking about that last night with a great post asking if Pioneer Woman is the most amazing blogger ever

I'll leave therefore on a postive note, in the hope of more positive things will come to me.. but really must get on and apply for something now or risk my benefits being taken off me...

£25!! For a tip!!

Oh yeah baby!!

LOL! That's awesome! I once won 3 nights at a 5 star hotel in Lisbon--hurrah!! I was so excited. But I couldn't afford the airfare. I couldn't even afford the journey to the airport. Ugh. £25 is a much much better prize.

Thanks for the shout out :)

Michelloui, no! Did you go? Asking that because Frankie P, it's gone into my 'oh the draught', barely hit the sides of the debt but figured that's what I should do with it, my holiday in Portugal went way over budget! (It reminds me though I should go for advice about my electricity bills, they keep me firmly in the red...)
Thanks for tomorrow, getting nervous, silly really, but I hate signing on.
Competitions! That's it, got to be in it to win it and I won this one for a tip! Must mean something good!
