Lucky or Unlucky?
I don't know who said Friday 13th is unlucky but my Grandad was born on Friday 13th (in a November), he was probably the luckiest person I knew when he was alive. He always won things, especially on the fruit machines or at Bingo if he played on the 13th and of course we were a very lucky family to have him.
Now and for the past 38 years I've had my Husband who was born on 13th April, today. He is the best thing that ever happened in my life, a real blessing to me.
My husband has a twin brother and his daughter was also born on April 13th, definitely a lucky day for him.
Today Hubby bought us a Euro ticket, placed a bet on the Grand National and bought a scratch card with the £2 coin he had left in his pocket.
He has scratched off the panels on the scratchcard and won £20 .......good start!
Fingers crossed for the Euro and the Grand National now but I couldn't get any richer than I am already being married to such a wonderful man.
I was born in a back room in a house at no 13. I have had more than my fair share of bad luck and I never win anything but I class myself as one of the luckiest people in the world as I have found myself a wonderful friend in @mrsblazer and have two other lovely friends I have yet to meet in @tommiesgirl and @Jade
Got £25 on the Premium Bonds on the 13th!
I gave up betting on horses many years ago, and only knew it was Grand National Day cos it was on the news.
I must lead a sheltered life.
We only bet on the Grand National, its a race my Nan always loved so it always stuck in my mind, she got so excited. I don't actually watch the race, I usually listen because I hate to see horses fall or being hit with a whip thingy.
Well done on the Premium Bond win @Rustyfrog, that was Hubbys' third win too. He has received a cheque for £25 from them in the post as well. He shot up and paid it in the bank on his lunch break today We haven't ever won anything big on the premium bonds but we have had them for years. I even have a £1 bond bought for me by my parents.
Any win is a good win, and although I often joke about winning someting big, I'm more than satified with our smaller wins.
I have only ever had one big win, I won a car some years ago. It was the most awful time of our lives, we had some terrible bad luck until we got rid of it.
