I helped out at Scout Bingo last night, setting up, selling tickets and making tea and coffee in the interval. It seemed rude not to join in with the hot gambling action so both Louis and I had books of six tickets per game and raffle tickets as well! All that benevolent behaviour must have prompted my personal wish granting fairy to look upon me favourably or maybe it was just the odds of winning with a smaller number of competitors had something to do with it. Anyway, here are the amassed winnings of me and Lou minus a pack containing treat sized Maltesers which somehow seems to have disappeared. Not bad eh! There's even a fifty pence piece that paid for my mid-time cuppa for being pipped to the post by another bingo-ista who won a line at the same time as me but had a higher cut on the cards.
My cheese and biscuit prize included a lovely glass chopping board and I'd just been thinking one of mine needed replacing. I've also had a hankering for vegetable carving for a few days now so the pumpkin meets that need. Perhaps its arrival suggests that a handsome prince too may be just around the corner!
