    That annoying moment when ... 30th Sep 17 at 3:45 AM
    you're up late watching the new Pirates Of The Carribean film, having a wee drink ... there's a £150 million Euromillions draw taken place and you get an email saying :

    "We've got some news about your ticket from the draw on Friday 29 Sep 2017.

    Please sign in to your account as soon as you can for more information.

    Congratulations and thank you for playing. "


    Only to find they close their site at night

    I didn't even know sites could open and close like that. What's the point of a website closing at night? Fingers crossed it's good or great news for you.

    Congratulations

    All your friends and family will want a share of your 20p, or you could go on a luxury 1 day holiday by bike to Paisley.

    Well, spent my winnings on a ticket for Saturday's Lotto and won a Lucky Dip for Wednesday so there's still a chance

    Well, I didn't get any emails about my lucky dip so I guess this is the end of the road for this thread ... it's a sad end to a very important chapter in my life. It's been tough, harrowing at times so I'd like to thank you all for the moral and emotional support, I couldn't have done it alone.
