How long have you held your bonds, Terminal? I've held mine for many years. There was a theory, probably nonsense, that in that case it was a good idea to sell them and buy new ones. My biggest wins, £1000 twice, were when I had just bought a very small holding.
I'll have to log out as an ocular migraine has just come on and I can see very little through the flashing zigzags.


Had a small amount of PBs for half a century or more. Had a full complement only in the last 5/6 years. There have been a mattering of months with nada of course.

£100 across two modest holdings here.

That's £550 for the year to date - a good start.

Have you been having these for long? Do you get them frequently? Have you received medical attention and advice? Do you take medication?


I'll send you a private message or the mods will be admonishing me. It's already clearing.


I sent you a pm this afternoon which I don't think you have seen yet. I have a feeling we don't get notifications of them now. The zigzag lights are flashing again so over and out.

£475 on 4 full family holdings.

Bouleversee - I’ve had the ocular migraines, very rarely accompanied by any headache or pain, since a teenager, on and off for 40 years now.

Sometimes disappear for years on end, but come back, often in bouts of 1-10 over a period of weeks. In my case the trigger is either extreme stress or occasionally very bright light. An unpleasant affliction, but manageable. Always the same, 20-40 minute episodes of impaired vision and flashing zig zig lines.

Interesting. Not much bright light around at the moment but plenty of stress, though not particularly yesterday.

Same here, second month in a row I've been one number out.

It was a very long number though.

2 full holdings: zilch in one, a cool £1125 in the other. I think this is our biggest monthly haul ever.

Zilch for me. Not won since August but then I've been drawing down 1500 a month since then and am down to £3k, still poor show though.
Insult to injury, my mother's friend bagged £25k last month and she needs to win money like a fat bloke needs to win a years supply of free butter :cry:
