High, Low, High, Low, High (phew!)

[to set the scene.....]

Remember these tickets?  Ignore for a moment the front ticket and focus your attention on the ticket behind.....that is the source of this post

HIGH:  Realising you read your Melbourne Cup ticket wrong and that you actually won.

LOW:   Finding out your husband (chief holder and checker of tickets and claimer of winnings) also read it wrong and threw it in the bin at the pub after the race.

HIGH:  Remembering you took a photo of your tickets to put on your blog and that maybe, just maybe, that might help in the quest to claim your pickings.

LOW:  Realising that some low-life grub at the pub on Cup Day (and there are a lot of them out and about on Cup Day) may have gone through the bin, picked out your winning ticket and claimed it themselves.


The agonising wait.....


HIGH:  Getting to the TAB with your printout of your blog photo of your tickets, being told you were very smart to take a picture of them because in a situation like this a photo makes the process soooo much easier (and quicker) and then finally, finding out that no low-life grub found your ticket and that you are the winner of the Melbourne Cup Trifecta!  Wooohooooo!  

Now to go shopping.....!


  1. So how much did you win? Is it rude to ask that? Congratulations!

    So? How much?

  2. Oooh I so wanted to tell how much but didn't want to come across all braggy and stuff! I won $1196.40 (can't forget that forty cents!). From a $19.80 outlay. Wicked!

    I'm in the process of working out what I'm going to spend it on. Not clothes or shoes because they are things that shouldn't come out of my own special stash.....it could take a while to spend it....
