    I commented last week about a win I had in May, I did not see till June and tried to claim in July

    Anyways my parcel arrived today and I was gobsmacked, I was only expecting a candle.
    I got loads of stuff a shopping bag, a handbag, a pinny, a tea towel, an oven glove, coasters, bookmarks, lots of note pads, a shopping list book, a birthday and anniversary book, a purse and more....

    The Julie Dodsworth stuff is really pretty and quite expensive.

    Really happy with my haul, and proves if you do miss a win but are polite about it you may still be able to claim

    So I still don't have a June win but it will add some value to my ££.

    (I didn't get a candle though)

    (Waiting for the Surfeners asking me what a pinny is now, as one told me the other week they had no idea what a bairn is)

    I didn't google it. I didn't think it was specific to one part of the country. I just assumed it was an old fashioned word that is not used much now. (But I'm old enough to remember my mum wearing one)

    Of course I know what a pinnie is. One of my fondest memories of Aunty Ginge (real name Lilian but universally known as Ginge) involve watching her put on one of those complicated wrap around pinnies to stop her clothes getting mucky. She wore it all day, a fresh one every day, and I don't think I ever saw her proper clothes unless we were out on a trip

    Best of luck with the matching

    We have Mrs Bot, Mrs Wine, Mrs Whip ect so it was natural you were going to be Nana

    Not bad for winning a candle
    Those are definitely berries on the bags/purse/oven gloves/pinny and berries are definitely fruit
