Back in the day when you could buy just one at £1 each, I bought one. A few years later I bought five. And once, just once, decades ago, one of them came up and I won the grand sum of £25. Well, it was a lot of money in those days. And then I forgot all about them. This morning Karin popped in on her way to the macolet [she is a young girl who works there a few hours a week] to ask if I wanted anything, took my keys and checked my mailbox, which was stuffed chokka to overflowing, and brought over what seemed like a good few months worth of mail. One of which had a Sunderland return address printed on the back. Sunderland? What or who could it be from Sunderland So I had a think and Could it be? Is it? Dare I open it? Shall I have a look? So I did and inside was an orangey/yellow slip of paper saying "You've won!" and a cheque! But by the time my bank converts the £ amount into ₪ and deducts their charge for the transaction, the £25 I have won again will not really be worth very much this time! I think I might treat myself to another tub of icecream!
