One Very Lucky Girl!


Whilst driving home this afternoon I found myself listening to the Radio ( cause My Ipod has been flat for weeks... I just keep forgetting to charge it)

Anyway, normally I dont listen to this particular radio show.. it just annoys me. Today the hosts were conducting a competition with a listener who had phoned in yesterday and won a chance to participate at Bondi Beach in Sydney Australia where the radio station staff buried 250 bags on the famous beach, with one containing a ticket worth million dollars.

Isabella, 29, a high school teacher from Ryde won the chance to dig for cash.  She was given five minutes to find as many of the bags as possible, pulling up just five of the sacks.

Of the five sacks she found she could only choose two to open.Isabella found the winning ticket in the first bag she chose to open.

The teacher said she would use her winnings to pay off her mortgage and celebrate New Year's Eve overseas.

Serioiusly..   this was just awesome. I found myself hoping  that she would succeed .. I mean seriously hoping that this complete stranger could beat all the odds, even though I really didnt expect her to.. I mean, whats the chances!??

It was awesome listening to her sheer excitement and absolute joy. It actually made me get all misty eyed. 

Good on her!!
