We do that occasionally and we buy tickets fairly often.
When the brochure arrived in the mail last week (one of my favourite mail items as I love to dream) I opened it, saw the location and thought, "This is our house!" (Told you, I love to dream!!)
Our dream location just happens to be the place we go to every weekend, where my husband's parents live, right on the coast.
As we were driving the few streets from Grandma's house with Grandma in tow, she let us know she would buy tickets for us. She said, "You have to buy two, because you always win with the second one."
Then our five year old (number obsessed) boy wanted to know how many tickets there would be. I told him thousands and thousands but he still wanted us all to guess what number our tickets would be. We said there were too many to guess but he guessed 90 anyway.
The whole time that we were wandering around the house having a good old stickybeak, our boy was pestering and pestering to buy the tickets, he was dying to see what number we got. The house was of course lovely, a little small, but I wouldn't say no if we won it!!!
So finally we got our two tickets...they're numbered 136289, and the second one...136290!!!
Crazy co-incidence? OR
Is this it?
Do we have the winning ticket??
