It's the twenty-third day of Advent. This means that there are only two more windows to scratch on my National Lottery Advent scratch card.
Twenty-two days I have been scratching away each morning to no avail. My luck has not come in for the second year in a row. So far.
The odds on me winning anything end today. I know there's always tomorrow. Wins on the final day are things that only happen in Hollywood.
Or British soap operas.
You'll find out how it went in the next few days. Don't expect a positive update..
