"It just hasn't sunk in – we are all completely delighted and over the moon. It's going to be a mint new year!
"We've always promised our son a trip to Florida, so now we'll be able to make that dream come true. I've no idea yet what we'll do with the rest, apart from of course treating the family.
"We're going out to a special dinner for our Gran's 60th tomorrow, so there'll be a few extra bottles of champagne at the table."
