Because of my prizes.....I discovered lottos
Because of lottos...... I discovered there are hundreds others who, like me, Check the letter box 10 times a day, can hear the postie a mile off, jump up at the sound of a car to see its the delivery van, everytime the phone rings think WPC, buy chocolate, drinks and stuff I dont need or already have. Experience the joy of giving the family luxuries I couldn't othewise afford. Hide a stash of goodies away for Christmas. Book marked lottos as my favourite site. Dont get the housework done like I should, stay up too late getting my entries in, justifying to hubby that I should continue to be a stay at home Mum, hanging out for that big WPC for a car or holiday.......It brought smile to my face just reading everyones post....thinking 'yep, thats me!!! and thats me too...

Because of my prizes over the years, my family and friends have had lovely surprises and experiences and I have become a more hopeful and positive person.
Competitions give me joy...........I even love it when others are happy!!

because of my prizes l have a serious addiction problem. I can spot a Postie Van 10 blocks away from my house, and just because it is heading away from my area, l am POSITIVE that l MUST have a parcel at my door....only to arrive home to find l havent :(:P:P

plus the fact that l check my front door about 10 times every morning convinced that l have a parcel waiting for me :P:P

Reading these posts have made me laugh so much, aren't we a funny lot of Postie Stalkers, Van talkers... Because of my prizes, I've never been to the movies so much in my life and am getting stindgy with handing over money for a hire movie. I now find myself walking the aisles of the supermarket with eyes for comping labels (used to consider this behaviour weird). I used to look forward to the weekends, now i look forward to the weekdays. This comping thing sure is a joy shared and I thank God I havent got kids at home anymore because of housework! Havent won a holiday yet or got a delivery from the van guy. Have cautioned my husband about being nice to the people we think are telemarketers as one may be for a prize some day. Suspence is a killer, but what a way to go!!!:P:P:P:mad::mad:

What a great thread when prizes are getting harder to come by. Reminds me why I do it.

Because of my prizes............
I drive a nice car
I took my family to Disney World in Florida and toured the States
I took my family to Switzerland
I took my family on a fishing trip to die for
I've bought lots of stuff for the house with money I have won
I dont have to replace any of my whitegoods for the next 20 (hopefully) years
I give great presents to family
I dont pay to see movies
I have an untidy house
I hate going away because its days I cant enter comps
I hate public holidays because it means no postie!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an
attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one
hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming
WOO HOO what a ride!

2006-$23411 + 2007-$69842 + 2008-$38712 + 2009-$20781 + 2010-$25344 = $178090
Jan-Oct - $8995
Nov = any minute now......

Because of my prizes, I finally got to see Europe and visit Amsterdam (where my husband was born). My children are thrilled with my wins and my husband even gets excited.

I've met some wonderful people and I have lots of fun. Life is just a little bit more interesting when I enter competitions.;)

Because of my prizes I now don't have to fill the radiator of my car before I go anywhere, and can take my kids on a road trip holiday without having to worry about not getting there, and I no longer get a shower through the leaking roof every time it rains as I'm driving :)

Because of one of my prizes, I've just had a big day out!
I spent today at Sandown Raceway, doing a Level 1 Driver course, with Murchotts. I've been driving for many moons and was trained through work as well (27 years ago) but I still learnt new things today and had a good time!
For any parent considering one of these courses for their newly licensed teenager, I would highly recommend it. Fun and informative and very safe...

Only two more sleeps, before I go to London and Paris!:P
Been running around all day and more to come tomorrow, before I fly out on Wednesday morning, for trip number one! Very, very excited now! I have culled the suitcase a couple of times now, but still packed a pretty dress, in case I see HRH whilst swaning about at the front of Buckingham Palace:P I'll be sure to give her a wave (if I see her) from all the royal lottoers:)
Gosh, this will be my first overseas trip, since joining lottos 8 months ago..will I survive, or will I get the d.t's and have a jumbo wireless internet bill waiting for me when I get home?:P Never fear, I have the list of Free wireless hotspots in UK and France!!! Tally ho, pip pip and Au revoir, for now:)

A HUGE TNT truck reversed right up my driveway today. I think I may have stopped breathing with excitement!!!!
The driver hops out goes to the back opens the door (meanwhile im hyperventilating) reaches in grabs a small box and delivers it to my door. Is that all? I say. Yep thats it love, says he. So politely I ask him if next time he just wouldn't mind pulling up out the front instead of reversing up the driveway. I want to live long enough to enjoy my wins I tell him, and excitment like that won't have me living too long!

So I go inside and open my parcel. An Apron, tea towel, 4 egg cups plates and spoons from Sunny Farm Eggs comp!!!!!

Very cute but not quite the massive plasma I pictured as the truck was reversing up my drive!

Comping has made me GREEDY and I love it!

Because of my prizes...

I have made some wonderful friends

My husband and I have done things we would never have otherwise done....

like seeing Killing Heidi, Snow Patrol and Steely Dan
like going to the Australian Chamber Orchestra
like seeing some very strange movies

I have seen heaps of DVDs and read lots of books that I would not have seen or read otherwise

I have done things I would never have done otherwise, like .....

walk the Overland Trail, because I won three nights accommodation in Tasmania with no travel there!

hiked near Moss Vale because I won some accommodation there!

gone for a weekend to Couran Cove resort - just for the hell of it!

had a fabulous weekend away with girlfriends because I won a trip away!

taken the kids to the Gold Coast, even though they would not have normally even come away with us!

bought my Mum and Dad a Plasma TV with winnings!

got some wonderful calls from friends when things arrive in their letterbox that I won for them! (and they know its me because I am their only "comping" friend!)

Because of my prizes I get really excited when the doorbell rings and I can see an orange vest through the glass, then i open it and get really mad when I discover it is a gas or electricity company trying to convert me over to them.... GRRRR

Because of my prizes I have a draw full of 365 unused kebab vouchers I can never use as they won't let me share with a friend to get to get a lift there. Also keep paying fees on ebay for size 10 clothing I haven't been able to sell ;)
But on the upside I love my plasma that I won over 4 years ago. My best win to date....;):)

Because of my prizes my kids, when they see family and friends with new items in their homes, ask in absolute innocence "What competition did you win that in?"
