Winning the lottery!

They say 'be careful what you wish for'.... well on Friday I decided to buy a lottery ticket and this isn't something I do very often, but hey... I was feeling lucky. I didn't even realise there was an £87,570,000 prize fund, but imagine my surprise when yesterday I received an email to tell me I was a lucky winner.

I won! No... not £87,570,000 but £3.10! A winner yes, but maybe not quite as much as I was hoping for!

Also on Friday Diesel passed a new Guide Dog milestone, as his brand new Guide Dog Puppy In Training jacket arrived in the post. And he looks very handsome in it.

It was slightly marred yesterday when we went to a garden centre in Edinburgh and some complete dipstick came charging towards Diesel with his hand outstretched. When I said he was actually in training to work he said, 'Oh. I thought the blue jacket meant they weren't working.' I can't tell you what I really wanted to say to him as I don't think it's repeatable in a public forum, but, because when we're out with our pups we're representatives of Guide Dogs and therefore have to be super polite, I managed a smile and told him he was wrong.

I'm now getting ready for my annual jolly to France to spend time with my friends in Normandy. I'm really looking forward to it and, of course, I will no doubt be spending my lottery winnings. Oh. I've just realised, I've already spent it on an avocado pear, some grapes and bread. Never mind... money isn't everything!
