    Luckily this year, Christmas seems to be sorted for me.


    Having won fewer prizes earlier in the year, I decided to back off a little and enter fewer competitions.


    Last Friday there was a call on my mobile, and when they asked my name I thought it was a scam, asking who they were. When the caller said Radio City, I wondered whether it was about the competitions they had been running that week.


    I had won £2000 cash! It had be collected from St John's Tower at Liverpool, as the prize was in notes. What a day that was! This week I received £500 cheque from Jambo's Soduko posts. I didn't post the Radio City win as I won from elsewhere.


    Am sharing with my family, and we've started Christmas already!

    Count me in!

    I suppose that I could count my £100 win from That's Life magazine along with my £10 that I have won today on the Peoples Postcode Lottery.
    A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realise how blessed you are.
