Recently, Cro posted about winning a prize at his local grocery store. This reminded me of the only time I remember winning anything.
I would have been 8 or 9 years old and the village fete was held that year in the recreation ground. Time came to draw the raffle and I was asked to draw it. I said I couldn't as I had a ticket and can still remember the laughter at that. Anyway, I put my hand into the basket of tickets and drew out my own.
I only remember two of the prizes, a lovely basket of fruit which I imagined was the first prize. No, the first prize was a tea service. My mother thought this was great - I wonder where it ended up.
This memory is still with me as though it was yesterday.
