Winning The Lottery

Camille Pissarro.

Well Nur got his plane ticket today for a flight to London next week Saturday, he flies away at 11.45 in the morning and arrives at Heathrow at 12 noon.

Isn't time travel good, wish we could beam over to visit him when he gets settled, sadly did not win big in the lottery, only won 22,50.

It is a shame but can not see us travelling to England or anywhere these days, only in fantasy.

Would love to see London again and visit my cousin in the countryside outside Paris and visit friends in Wales and Devon.

None of which is possible for me not the way I am , especially as I can not sit for so long yet, that’s where a lottery win would have been great.

The only reason I could ever imagine travelling in First Class on a plane would be because you got a cabin to lie down in.

Already started organising the right sort of mattress and a smaller foldable hoist and a smaller adapted wheelchair for the flight.

Think that the fantasy got quite involved at that point and sadly was stopped short by the fact that I had not won the jackpot.

It was a great fantasy shame it did not become reality, nearly bought a new ticket for July but decided against it, am going to stay in the real world this month.

The sun is shining again today which is a really lovely change from the recent cool and grey and rainy weather.

Enjoying the sunshine very much and the company of Nur which has brought added sunshine to both our lives.

Going to enjoy finding pictures for this post and then enjoy dinner and watch South Africa v Uruguay.

Herrad, I found a note my father wrote to my daughter on her 30th birthday and he said to her "Here are your lucky numbers" so I am going to buy a lottery ticket with those numbers. LOL.

If I win I plan to come visit you. =)

I would truly love to be able to afford to fly there and sit and talk and pet the dogs, I think I shall buy a lottery ticket too.

Next best thing would be posting pictures of Paris and the country side by a wonderful painter. I am sure dreams of winning the lottery have caused many a fantasy to come to mind which was great while it lasted.

Sounds like a fabulous dream to me ... I always think about what I would do if I won ...

Hi Stephany,
Hope you win too, it would be so good to see you here and even better if Lindsey was a with you.
It is a nice dream that I will keep dreaming.

Hi Gerry,
You are right about fantasies coming to life and being really good while the fantasy lasted.

Hi JC,
It is a great dream and I love it.
One time i actually made a list of what I would do if I won.
Got too sad when I did not win.
I never make lists now.

Hi Robert,
