After buying her ticket, pharmacy assistant Kerry Poxon promptly stuck it on the fridge and forgot about it.
And as she got caught up with her work and looking after her children, it was three weeks later when she finally checked it.
But it was a good job she did - because she'd won an incredible £1.1miliion!
Kerry, 44, from Nottingham, told the Daily Mirror: "I couldn't believe it when the numbers on my phone matched. I thought I was going mad so called my dad and asked him to check for me again.
"To think my ticket worth over a million pounds had been stuck on my fridge all that time is unbelievable. It's a dream come true."
She plans to buy a new house and train to be a midwife with her winnings.
Wow - we wish something like that would happen to us!
