Earlier this afternoon I was on twitter when I discovered a link to a competition from Lucozade. I had to enter as the prize was for two people to watch Chelsea train next week, followed by VIP match tickets next Sunday (Chelsea Vs West Ham) including a 3 course meal and champaign reception.
Little man was off school today as it seems that his now got the flu (the one I’ve had this past week)! When entering the competition, Little man commented, “You won’t win Mum, thousands of fans will be entering!” Well he was wrong, when I arrived home from the supermarket this evening an email pinged and there in the header were the words “Congratulations”
Little man’s face was a picture… He stood stunned before letting out a huge roar as he danced round the room, not letting the flu hold him back!
I rang the number in the email and had it all confirmed. I now have one very excited little man on my hands.
Admittedly I would have liked to hold it back for a few days but I was actually really excited myself and kinda blurted it out as soon as I read the email. Why might I’d liked to leave it a day or two before informing him? Well, his a kid like any other and he will drive me potty with his excitement I’m sure. Then again he is a child with Aspergers and I will need to prepare him for our trip so in many ways its great that I’ll have the time to do this…. Please no swearing at the match… No swearing at the match… No swearing at the match! Yes, his already heard these words a 100 times since we discovered we won!
So… Here’s hoping we can get one of his shirts signed after training. I have all my fingers and toes crossed as this would be a truly magical experience for him.
There are very little things that excite my son… Transport, WWE, Mindcraft & Chelsea FC are right up there in his list of top interests. Winning the competition is great because I know its something I’d never be able to afford otherwise and seeing the smile its created is the best Mother’s Day gift ever!
