I’m A (#HBloggerLove Awards) Lottery Winner!

winning number, bingo, winner, lottery prize, prize

When I went to the #HBloggerLove Awards Party organised by HostelBookers, I never thought I would win 30 nights accommodation but I did.


I was so surprised because I NEVER win anything.  Really, I’m not being melodramatic, I don’t.  I’m not normally one of those ‘lucky’ people.  That was until the night I won the HostelBookers’ lottery prize.


When I heard someone call number 28, I had to search in my bag for the small white ball I had been given at the beginning of the night.  It had a number on it.  As I searched for it, someone went up on the stage to accept the prize so I was sure it wasn’t me.  That was until I looked at the little white ball in my hand and saw what I thought was 28.  It was dark so I was wondering if I was mistaken, especially as someone else had claimed the prize.  I showed it to a couple of people beside me and they said it was the winning number.  I wondered if there were two number 28s by accident so I showed it to one the organisers.  As it turns out, the person on the stage had number 26 and not number 28.  So, I was the winner, OMG!  I had actually won something.  It took a while to sink in but, as it did, I felt so lucky.  It was my turn to accept my prize and have my photo taken – yippeee!!!


Thanks, HostelBookers!  Now I just have decide where I’m going to go and when.  I have a few ideas but I’d welcome a few more.  Where would you go if you won?
