If I'd borrowed a few grand a put it on the eventual winner, I could have paid me rancid mortgage off tomorrow morning. ::)

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, in'it?

I think Mrs G's winnings might just stretch to a bottle of cheap red and a family sized  bag of Asda Smart Price mixed nuts and raisins. happy088

If  noooo:

I don't ask for much in me life.
I just want this bastard mortgage out of the way, but the end is nowhere in sight sadly.
Stiched up like a kipper on a useless and now virtually werthless endowment policy 20 long years ago.
The kids can inherit it when both me and Mrs G have snuffed it if they want. ::)
