Dream numbers for Lotto winner
Jul 08 2012
A woman has helped her family win £163,000 on the Lotto after using numbers she dreamed of five years ago.
Matt and Lisa Ashwood, from Lewes, East Sussex, and Matt's father Peter Ashwood, 65, hit the jackpot for their family syndicate which they started three years ago.
Mrs Ashwood, 40, not only dreamt the numbers but also the machine and set of balls used to pick their prize-winning draw on Saturday June 30.
The mother of four said: "About five years ago I had a really vivid dream that I'd won the lottery. When I woke up I wrote down all the details including the numbers, the machine - Guinevere - and set of balls number six.
"From then on, we have played those numbers without fail but I guess, like most people, just didn't think it would actually come true. It's spooky that not only did five numbers and the bonus ball come up but also the machine and set of balls matched my dream."
Mrs Ashwood has treated herself to a season ticket for Brighton and Hove Albion and booked a family holiday to Tunisia.
She said: "After we had registered the win, we went shopping for our family holiday to Tunisia and despite knowing we had won a fabulous amount of money, we weren't extravagant.
"We still went to Primark and celebrated by treating the kids to a McDonald's. We haven't really made any definite decisions about what to do with the money, except my season ticket, but after we've invested some, we will certainly be paying off our debts, maybe do some decorating at home and possibly upgrade the car."
