Why oh why

Can we not win some money.


Really hard without a motorhome having sold it in November last year.


Beautiful day up here on the moors and a few have just passed us.


We are having a small extension built with the funds so can't afford it just yet.


Put the lottery on and can never get a bleeding numbernever mind the jackpot.


Are there any competitions to win a motorhome I wonder? Now there's a thought


Can you buy owt decent for 10k?


Paul.

I feel your pain, but what are you looking for in size etc.

Over the last couple of months I've had 4 wins on €uromillions!
Highest was £3:80.
However for a couple of hours on a Tuesday evening I'm busy spending all my expected wealth and I even get the thrill of a congratulatory email telling me to check my account, which I can't as I'm not in the UK (now there's stupid). So I have to wait 3 days to see what's paid into my bank account.
At least, so far, I haven't had to phone Hymer to cancel an order!!

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

Around 7m to 7.5m.


A class LHD, been looking at importing one, an old vario mobil, the exchange rate is crap now though, if it went back to nearer the 1.40 mark.


You can get sme decent older A class hymers too although need careful checking.

Yes I know what you mean.
I remember a couple of months or so ago when the lottery added more numbers and the chances lessened. They had a mathematician come on the tv saying its now 46 million to one. He put in context saying if you fill your bath tub right to the brim with grains of rice, amongst which is hidden one golden grain then the chances of winning are like putting your hand in the bath and chooing one grain, the golden one.


I,m off to the catering outlet to buy a few sacks of rice, I need to try that one a few times, I,ll paint one grain golden yellow, I,m not going post again on here again until I pick out the golden grain.


Bye all, been nice knowing you.

My Niece and her Partner won £100,000 when lotto first started, could not have happened to a nicer couple.

One of our new neighbours won One Million on the Euromillion Raffle..........


So it does happen!

I miss our motorhome too, but we have something else in its place to keep me busy!

Good Luck
