No email (they seem to turn up later), but logged in to find I've won £25.

Which was nice.

Can you buy 26 quid's worth of premium bonds?

I have had a £1 bond since 1965 (christening). Many years back it got changed to £2. Then a while back it morphed into a £5 bond. That's the only 'win' it has had in 56 years!

You can withdraw all but £1 apparently and delay the withdrawal to the next draw, you can then win £25 from the £12k you were withdrawing and end up with £26, that you can't be bothered to do anything with.

A few days late this month with my update ... and, unsurprisingly, no win again :cry:

Nowt here either.
