Shock item of post

I had a letter through this morning which came as a great shock.
After a mere 54 years one of my £1 premium bonds has won.
I have attached a black bin liner to the letterbox in anticipation of the begging letters.
The National Saving people are sending round a financial advisory team to help me with my win but family comes first after a little indulgence by myself.

Congratulations, Strat.
I have had a £5 bond for 52 years and a £10 for 51 and won zilch with both Cry

I got all excited just now as there was a loud thud from the front door as the postie delivered. I thought it might be my new lasers for a project but turned out to be a Toolstation catalogue Sad

That ripping noise you can hear is my begging letter being torn to shreds
Unless that is you could take pity on me?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
