SHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!

Well its not every day you get to say this. My car is at the garage so can't get out the house, rang all me mates....I have just won £67,000!

Won the jackpot on jackpotjoy which I was only doing because I had some credit in there from a while back.

I'm shaking like a mad person, feel sick, smoked about 20 **** in the last hour. Have rang them and they have confirmed it. Gonna take about 2 weeks for me to recieve a cheque. [:D]

What can I say?

Now, I need ideas for nice cars people, around 12k which I'm prepared to pay cash for [:D][:D][:D]

You think I'm kidding? Wouldn't be typing this if I had a car to get out! However, probably not wise to drive in my current condition!

Well it's not sunk in yet obviously. Keep parading round the house like a lost puppy wondering what on earth to do! It's quite good that I don't have the car! Would be lethal on the roads at the moment!

2 week nervous wait now. Got to wait until monday for an e-mail off them for proof of identity and stuff, then send that off, as soon as they have cleared it, they will send a cheque, then I bank it (with a big big smile on my face) and wait another 4 days.

When I see it in my account, I think it might sink in! At the moment, all I can think of is 'what if they dont pay it'.

My mortgage is £32,000.....Only got 25% of the house. So would pay that off, but that already ran through my mind and with people saying lows are gonna happen, dont think it would be wise.

If I get it, mum and dad are going on holiday..erm, dunno what else really! It's 3 years wages up front!

Haven't a clue! Will think about that if they don't find some kind of loophole where they don't send the cheque! I'm extremely dubious at the moment, even though it's been confirmed. Apparently I need to produce a lot of evidence as to who I am first. It's just niggling me at the moment.

Don't be daft, pay it off now. Or better still, buy the rest of it, or even better still, move and put £30-40k down on something else. You have a golden opportunity here most would kill for!

Well done that man !!!! Hope it all goes well for you ( you could buy us all a mug if they go into production [:p])
LOL [:D]

Well done Graham, you lucky lucky sod!

I'd get that mortgage paid off, or buy some more of the house if you only got 25%. Or sell and move, with a bigger deposit.

Nice one, very happy for ya mate [H]
