    Arrived into work this morning and there was a letter (in very fine quality stationery) marked "Restricted: Personal". "Cripes", I thought, "what've I done now to deserve disciplinary action/the sack/demotion (delete as appropriate)?"

    Then I read the letter. Turns out I have been awarded a £200 bonus for my "outstanding hard work and dedication" during a contingency exercise last July. After my recent turn of bad luck (mostly involving traffic accidents and cars in general - I got my Clio broken into last week as well and the front passenger door destroyed) it looks like things are looking up.

    I have been in great form all day now.

    At the weekend I was throwing out the empty Bold carton. Inside I spotted a 'you have one a lottery scratch card' notice. Mrs D traded it for a scratch card and won £12. Not quite £200 but can't complain :)
