My First Manicure - Angela Kelly

Overdrawn on Monday. £35M in credit on Wednesday.

The life of anyone in that position is bound to be changed. But was it necessary for the media to fish quite so shamelessly for another juicy divorce case as they did through their questions about the absent Mr Kelly and his possible claims to this windfall? Questions which Angela fielded with amazing grace.

Was it necessary for them to test her identity quite so deviously with their questions about her charitable intentions and spending plans? Would she be sending her son to public school? Would she be buying a house in Italy? Which sounded a bit like the cry of 'Join Us, Join Us!' from the Undead - or the advertising departments of the newspapers which depend on the property industry for their existence, as they are sometimes known.

Did they have to try quite so hard to tease out some evidence of basic selfishness in order to feed the myth of universal selfishness and self-indulgence? Would she be paying pop stars to give private performances? Wouldn't it be great if everyone was that innately selfish?

Sadly, Angela Kelly looks set to disappoint the Lottery vultures. Good for her.

    I am so happy for Mrs. Kelly that I watched the segments on her win each time I saw it on the news. I enjoyed so much hearing about her luck - all the more so because I am in the most desperate position (not just financially) I've ever been.
    Few know what "rock bottom" means, unless they've been in my position. And I repeat: it's not only, or even predominantly, about money - but, oh God, it would help! The mere thought of it makes me cry with happiness.

    You know, I can't stand the nauseating stupidity and/or hypocrysy of those who seize any such opportunity to poontificate that "money doesn't buy you happiness"...

    The hell it doesn't!

    It does - to those who, like myself, have an innate talent for happiness. (Yes, you have to have a talent even for that.)

    And for many, including myself, there can be a moment in their lives when money alone is the thin line between life and death.

    I don't think Mrs. Kelly needs any more "luck" - but I do wish her happiness!
