I’m sure I’m not the only one who day dreams about winning the lottery. I often wonder how I’d react and what I’d spend the money on if all my numbers did come up in the lottery, just enough to be comfortable would be fine by me, but what about 10 million pounds? That’s a huge amount, mind you, I should probably start doing the lottery on a regular basis to be in with a chance. I’ve done it a few times, the most memorable win for me was winning £20 on my birthday, and I spent in on my other half!
So how would I spend 10 million pounds?
Buy A House
I’m not talking mansion size, but one with enough space for me to have a dressing room and a room dedicated to blogging, where my equipment can be set up all the time.
Pay Off Any Debts
I know it’s a bit practical but wouldn’t it be nice never having to worry about debts any more? Never seeing those envelopes drop on the door mat just before pay day with a fear of dread at how much I owe that month.
Go on Holiday
I’d have to go abroad and my first stop would be Disney World, I’m feeling dizzy with excitement just thinking about it! I’ve never been out of the UK, don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved holidaying in this country, but there’s a whole wide world out there. I’d book a long holiday to Australia for me and Adrian, then I’d visit New York with a few of my friends most probably over Christmas and New Year.
Go To Ladies Day At Ascot
I’m not even worried about placing a bet, after all, I’ve just won a load of money, I’d absolutely love to go to Ladies Day at Ascot. I’d buy a fancy new outfit and buy the best tickets available, with a private lounge/bar area and enjoy the luxury food. Of course I’d have to have a tiny flutter, but mainly I’d be going to Ascot for the whole amazing experience.
Buy A Special Jewellery Set
I am a lover of sparkly things, but to own a beautiful jewellery set would be amazing. I mainly own costume jewellery but I do have a few sentimental pieces. I’d have a bracelet, earrings and necklace with Diamonds and Sapphires, I’ve always loved these and they’d match my engagement ring. I’m sure I’d get to wear this gorgeous new set now I’m a millionaire!
Donate Some To Charity
This is something I’d have to do, I’d feel terribly guilty if I didn’t help out some charities who are close to my heart. Top of my choices would be British Heart Foundation, followed by Tommy’s (Stillbirth, Premature birth and Miscarriage), Mind and Cat’s Protection.
Put Some In A Savings Account
Another practical one, but you never know what the future may bring and it could be earning me interest while it’s in the savings account, so I’d have enough for emergencies.
Give Some To My Friend and Aunt
While I was growing up my family hardly had two pennies to rub together, yes my Aunt and Nan treated me with those cute things that little girls had, but they were always worried about money. I wouldn’t want to be enjoying the high life while my friend struggled with her son, so I’d put some in a bank account for his education and future.
Have A Huge Party
I’d invite all my close friends and family for one big knees up, complete with music, entertainment, cocktails and goodie bags (sounds like a Bloggers Event). I would most probably book a hall in a nice country hotel , where everyone could stay over night and we’d all gather for breakfast in the morning.
Treat Adrian To Something Nice
He is quite hard to buy for when it comes to gifts, but he would definitely love a new camera and all the stuff that goes with it. I couldn’t win all that money without sharing it with Adrian, we’ve been through so much together and I’d want him to enjoy my good fortune too.
You never know, dreams can come true!
Let me know what you would do if you won 10 million pounds on the lottery.
