A LUCKY lotto mum feels her £1mil­ion win was a gift from her dead mother. Liz­bet Ra­mus says Laven­der “sprin­kled magic dust” on her from Heaven.

A LUCKY mum who won a £1mil­lion lotto prize be­lieves her late mother “sprin­kled some magic dust” over her.

Liz­bet Ra­mus, 55, was over the moon when she found her num­bers had come up in the EuroMillio­ns UK Mil­lion­aire Maker draw on Christ­mas Eve.

She be­lieves her mum Laven­der, 83, who died from an aneurysm last April, was look­ing down from Heaven and de­ter­mined to save what would have been a night­mare Christ­mas.

Ware­house man­ager Liz­bet said: “I think she has sprin­kled some magic dust over me. She’s up there look­ing af­ter me.

“She was a beau­ti­ful wo­man. We lost her in April and not a day goes by when I don’t think of her.

“It was the most dif­fi­cult thing in the world.

“She was an amaz­ing mum so I can’t help think­ing this is her spread­ing a lit­tle Christ­mas magic at a time when I re­ally needed it.”

Liz­bet, from Shore­hamby-Sea, West Sus­sex, went out and treated her­self to a £70 coat from Next.

But the mum-of-one in­sists she does not in­tend to go over the top.

She even plans to carry on work­ing as a sales and ware­house man­ager for her fam­ily’s busi­ness OPAS (South­ern) Ltd.

“I am go­ing to carry on work­ing – keep my feet on the ground,” she said.

Else­where, a cou­ple, from Stock­ton-on-Tees, Teesside, had a dou­ble cause for cel­e­bra­tion as they scooped a £2m fes­tive Lotto jack­pot. Three days later, their 15-year-old son was cleared of can­cer.
