Marilyn needed to pay for parking on the street, but the machine wouldn’t take any of the bills that she had on hand. She decided to run into a store to quickly get some change, but in order to do that, she needed to make a purchase. She bought the cheapest thing at the counter, a £2 scratcher, and was able to get change for her £10 note.
She had no idea that the £2 card was about to make a huge change in her life!She forgot about the scratcher for a day, but while she was at work, she pulled it out of her purse, she decided to see what it was worth.
I had to ask a couple of my colleagues to check if it was real. When I saw it in my handbag I actually thought to myself ‘I could have been sitting here all day yesterday a winner’.” She had bought the card on a whim, and now she had more money than she knew what to do with!
She plans to use the money for her mother’s 60th birthday celebration. Her mother had always told her and her sisters that if they ever won the lottery, they would take a family trip to Disneyland. Now that Marilyn has won the lottery, she is planning a big trip for her mother to enjoy!
It also means that she’ll be able to stop working overtime at work and buy a house – something she thought she would never be able to do!
