I might try the lucky couple’s tactic and forget to check

BLAISE TAPP: 'Tis the season to be more giving to the lonely

Have your say

How amazing is it that a couple from Nottingham had won £1m on the EuroMillions and didn’t even realise it?

They stuck the ticket to the fridge and didn’t bother to check it for over a month. A month!

Things that I forget about for that long tend to go mouldy in the back of the fridge, not come out sparkling with gold dust.

Can you imagine that feeling of being told at the newsagent that you’re a big winner? Never mind the people who win £40m, a single mill would do me and the family just fine.

Maybe I’ll try the lucky couple’s tactic and refuse to check my tickets for a while.

Perhaps that will have the desired effect. Yeah, right.
