At last...

...I've finally won on the Premium Bonds Smiley Smiley Smiley
I've had £15 worth for over 50 years and recently bought a further £150.

I have a couple of PB's which my mum bought me in 1958. They haven't won yet.

Last year one of my two bonds won £25 after 56 years.
When I paid the cheque into the bank a woman at the next counter was cashing a Lottery cheque for a few hundred pounds Roll eyes
