Almost as good as winning the lottery

My wife called to me " the washing machine has broke".. then wails of horror as she realized it was halfway through a wash cycle. Big panic. After a few minutes investigation I found the problem wasn't the washing machine but the power supply. So a quick reroute via an extension cable and it's whirring and chugging away quite happily.
My wife looked at me and said " I feel like I've won the lottery". And I must admit it felt darn good to fix it so easily.
So what has happened to you to make you feel " almost like winning the lottery"?.

Finding new 3rd party garage door opener remotes to work with my garage door  Cheesy
The manufacture went out of business 10 years and we couldn't get replacements, I feared we would have to buy a new opener.

Re: Almost as good as winning the lottery

Moving from London to Derbyshire to retire. I no longer walk across London Bridge every morning with the other commuter rats. My income is a fraction of the former levels, but it is pure bliss.
