How did you get the job? My daughter caught the end of the lottery results and told me that we'd got three numbers. Ten minutes later, my husband told me we'd got six. The roof went off the house! We didn't sleep very much that night. Camelot gave us a big cheque on the Tuesday. I felt on top of the world, but also frightened of the unknown.
Does reality match the dream? Our £2.9 million will have to last us 40 years. If we splashed out £1.5 million on a big house, bought several sports cars, went on flash holidays, then we'd be living beyond our means. We've always been careful with money and you don't change overnight. We shop at Tesco's, not Harrods. We might not be living everyone's dream, but life is pretty good.
