Last week, I had five days on late, and I found there was another world out there. I wasn't used to being off in the morning; I could lay in bed and not have to get up.
I could go walking off down the high street and shopping if I want to. I could have a beer if I wanted to. I'm not a big heavy drinker, but occasionally it's nice to go in the pub and have a pint and not have to worry about it.
I don't have to worry any more about what to do as I have money in the bank. I can treat colleagues at work, and would also like to see if we can give the residents some sort of do leading up to Christmas. The pressure's off
A 67-year-old care home worker from South London insists his life will barely change after winning almost £8 million on the National Lottery. Ron Elliott was watching Saturday's live programme in the rented maisonette he shares with an old friend in Sutton. He won £7,959,312.
Because you work with old people who rely on you, you can't just sort of take time off. The others would be left with the work. They've got no option, they've got to rely on all. Half of them are bed-ridden and some have dementia. For that reason alone you make sure you're there to look after them. I'm quite happy for my life to keep ticking along.
Mr Elliott works 60-hour weeks earning in the region of £15,000 a year.
Lotto tickets double in price to £2 from today and there have been a few signs around London to help people remember. Among them, a giant green Lotto ball embedded into a black cab and some 26 foot high balls floating down the Thames.
The lucky winners bought tickets for the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw on the 26th of July, which created 100 millionaires in one night.
While 87 people have come forward to bank their winnings, 23 are still missing. The National Lottery says four of them bought their tickets in and around London - in the boroughs of Havering, Kensington and Chelsea, Sutton and Elmbridge.
A National Lottery spokesperson said, "Missing tickets have turned up in some strange places so check in the bottom of your handbag, in every coat pocket, even have a rummage down the back of your sofa - the ticket could be lurking anywhere."
Winners have until 11pm on Wednesday 22 January, 2014 to make their claim.
The National Lottery is appealing to four winners to come forward or risk losing their one million pound winnings. Four tickets from the boroughs of Havering, Kensington and Chelsea, Sutton and Esher have unclaimed jackpots.
