I forgot to say that I didn't win the lottery on Saturday. So as it turns out, my winning streak was more of a blip. In fact, having bought a total of five losing lottery tickets, you could argue that by winning the iPad, I'm actually five quid worse off. Or fifteen if you count the tenner I spent on a case.

On the plus side, the news of my achievement has now been officially announced...

The picture's there to refute the claim that by choosing me as the winner, they'd somehow lost their marbles.

As the text says, they hope I enjoy my new iPad. And I do. I find it's particularly good when you’ve just come out of the bath, and you want to watch a few videos on the sofa...

Although I haven't had a chance to try that yet because Amelie's always watching Pocoyo.

In other news, I was in the Sense charity shop in Uckfield at lunchtime today, where I found a Next long-sleeved shirt for £3 and a Next sleeveless jumper for £2.90. Being made of money, I decided to buy them both, so I took them up to the counter and handed them to the lady on the till. She examined my purchases, before saying "That's nice, and that's nice, but I hope you're not planning to wear them together!". She then laughed at the very idea that I might consider such an obvious fashion faux pas.

Naturally I joined in the jollity, chuckled along with her, and then lied through my teeth and said "No!"

I was expecting a photo there of you wearing them both together!

I'm saving them for your 70th.

An evening spent with your calculator and you were still 31 minutes out?  I'd have said no-one came close enough and kept the prize.
