Now be honest….how many opened it quicker because of the title?
Okay, it was €10 on Euromillions but I won’t let it change our life!
Seriously though folks, I’d be grateful of your valuable help! I’ve moved a couple of the topics that people found helpful to the new Financial Advisor section in "Ask the Expert" to make it easier for people to find and refer back to. I’ve also added a few other topics that I think might be helpful to people. I’d be really grateful for any feedback on the various topics, including how clear they are to understand and any other relevant topics you would like included? Please feel free to ask any questions and let me know what you think, your opinions are greatly valued!
Any friends or relatives not on mumstown are also welcome to ask away (and as you know, it doesn’t take long to join Mumstown!)
Music quiz’s, recipes, parking warnings and all other not very financial topics will be posted as usual!February 2, 2011 at 9:51 am #109049Maria30Member
Congrats on your win 😆 😆
Any ideas on what your going to spend it on?February 2, 2011 at 3:15 pm #109063
Thanks Maria 😀
I think your keyboard might be playing up…..some words are missing…I’m sure you meant to say "any ideas what your DW is going to spend it on"! 😆
Seriously though, it was a choice between investing it wisely in one of our trusted and loved banks, or else spluttering it away on something like wine!……….Now, where did I put those wine glasses? 😆 😆
Don’t forget to have a look at the Financial Advisor section of ask the expert and let me know what you think? 😉February 2, 2011 at 6:42 pm #109073
I won a little over a thousand pounds many many years ago.. .had 5 and the bonus but they didnt payout on 5 and the bonus at the time, but was delighted with my 1200 puntsFebruary 2, 2011 at 9:16 pm #109085

In early september 1995, we had just arrived back from driving around France, and our 5 numbers got us 844 punts (which I had to split with my mil, we did it jointly at the time), if no.12 had come out instead of 13, it was 2.7 million and no winners that week! (hence I remember the date, stared at the teletext to see if the numbers would change for ages! 😆February 2, 2011 at 10:58 pm #109099
I was the same i had 22 and 21 was the 6th number….. if i had 21 (i wouldnt have had as 22 is my DOB) I would have won 1.6 million, no winner that week.
I know a couple from Navan, they are very very well known business people… they had a staff syndicate and one week both the husband and the wife did the numbers, so when they won… they had a 1.16 share each in the syndicate, plus they had a second winning tickets so the had as a couple a half share of the jackpot
About 2 years later their youngest child was learing to write and gave the daddy 6 numbers to do in the lotto…. he took the paper and went to the shop, mam said she was sitting having her tea and the numbers were getting called out, they looked at the childs number and BINGO! She had picked the winner numbers over 6 million….. but the feckin dad hadnt done her numbers! 🙄 He hasnt lived it down, his daughter still brings it up 😆 😆 😆 😆February 3, 2011 at 8:04 am #109106MoonflowerMember
my sis husband won 5grand on euromillions just b4 christmas..so definately worth buying those tickets!! but must admit havent bought one lotto this year yet..money tighter than usual but my rule is you have to speculate to accumulate !! so i should start buying again really 🙂February 3, 2011 at 9:08 am #109112chewieodieParticipant
I actually got lucky last year…… one 4 grand on the euromillions, and then even better, followed it up again a few weeks later with another 4 grand….
The timing was perfect, what with DH being unemployed, it helped us get over what could have been a VERY rough patch! I ALWAYS buy lottery tickets….. 😆 😉February 3, 2011 at 10:04 am #109116
Delighted to hear that Chewie! 😀
Any more of those and I’ll be giving you investment advice 😉February 3, 2011 at 10:57 am #109122

No prizes but name the actor who used to say "It’s good to talk" in the BT ads?
