Staying up late for the Premium Bonds results, getting up early to go fishing and can we call the police if there’s a dog in the swim?

This was our best month yet, with my wife getting 6x £25 prizes, while I had 3 of the same value.

As we have a joint bank account, it doesn’t really matter, because it’s the total that’s more important.

Coinciding with going part-time, the bonds payouts are an important part of our income now.

Of course, we’d love one of the million pounds hits, but we don’t get carried away.

It’s about being realistic and a generous handful of the minimum £25 prizes each month keeps us happy.
