Do you know that feeling when you have two great things happen in a row and feel like you're walking on air?
Maybe you bagged yourself the last cheese ploughman on the meal deal aisle and bumped into that mate from school you haven't seen in ages on the way out of the shop!
Maybe your five-a-side team won this week and walking home you see Spoons is doing a deal on Fosters! Maybe you're reading a mint theLADbible article and remember how hilarious it was when James Corden got merked by Patrick Stewart at some shit award ceremony!
Either way, none of those experiences compare to this lucky Welsh family who scooped an enormous £61.1 million EuroMillions jackpot - just days after one of them got the all clear from a cancer operation. Talk about lucky!
Stephanie Davies, 23, bought a ticket on Friday night after her mum, Sonia, phoned from Florida and begged her to buy one.
Sonia, 53, was in the US having vital keyhole surgery to remove a cancerous tumour, but she reckoned she would go on a winning streak after the op was a success. And boy did she.
Sonia had cancer in the parathyroid glands in her neck - but now she's got the all clear. She said: "What a roller coaster of a week we've had. They managed to give me the all clear straight after the operation, so as you would imagine, we were on cloud nine.
"We were about to return home to celebrate our brilliant news. Keith was scanning his emails and read about the EuroMillions rollover.
"He was convinced that we were the luckiest people on the planet and definitely on a winning streak after the success of my op, so we called up my daughter, Courtney, to ask her to go and buy a ticket.
"She was travelling and wasn't able to change her plans so we called Stephanie instead as something told us we needed to get a ticket - and the rest is history!"
Well done to the family, you deserve it. Now start thinking about what you're going to do with your winnings!
