'Standing up and heading across the room to turn off the telly, I smiled at the thought of heading upstairs to get under the covers. As ever it had been a long and tiring day, and tonight I'd rounded it off with some ‘me- time' in front of the TV to catch up on my shows.
'I was up early most mornings to go to work in a nearby bakery before doing a cleaning shift at the local school. It was exhausting but I enjoyed having a natter with the customers and, later on, the schoolkids. My own children, twins Gary and Graham, 29, Ashley, 27 and Sarah, 22 knew how hard I worked. The boys even offered sometimes to come over and cook dinner for the family on Sundays. And the girls offered to help me do our living room because I had been working on redecorating downstairs for a while now and I really wanted to get that finished.
'There was something comforting about choosing paint samples and wallpaper, but tonight I wasn't in the mood for flicking through colour charts. Heading into the kitchen, I took my laptop and thought I'd log on for a spot of GoodtoKnow Bingo. Emerald Bingo is my favourite game on there. The tickets are a total bargain, starting from just 1p each.
'With my game playing out and the numbers being automatically dabbed, I decided to make a cup of tea to take upstairs. Then with tea in one hand and computer in the other, I made my way up to bed.
'Snuggling under the covers, I was about to log out of my computer, when I suddenly saw something that made my eyes widen in surprise. I rubbed them before checking the screen again. But I'd been right the first time. Just as I'd been getting ready to doze off, I'd got a Full House. And the prize was £1,000!I was so excited, I immediately rang round the kids to tell them my good news. ‘I won the bingo!' I shrieked.
'When I told them, they thought I was having them on at first. ‘Are you sure, Mum?' Ashley asked. ‘You've had a long day, you might have made a mistake.' But there was no mistake. I leapt out of bed and did a little dance in my nightie to celebrate! The money's come in so handy doing up the house and now I can splash out on some lovely new French windows. Playing GoodtoKnow Bingo is always loads of fun, but that game before bedtime certainly gave me the sweetest dreams!'
