    what would you spend the money on?

    - I would give my family some (I suppose have to give in laws some :()

    - I would pay off our debts and I know this sounds mad but I'd pay a few years in advance on our council tax/electric/gas etc

    - I would obviously pay of the mortgage and move to a bigger house (not huge just a comfortable 3 bed)

    - I would probably go on holiday somewhere lovely

    - I would give some to charity

    - I would invest the rest so that we could live of the interest.

    - I'd get electrolysis (sp?)

    I'm bored so just humour me...

    I would go to Australia to see my son.

    My DH could retire now instead of 2 years from now.

    Treat my family.

    Buy a brand new Motorhome.

    Build a big extenstion on our bungalow so we have extra room when the family come to stay - we live 30 yards from the beach, so I wouldn't want to move.

    Maybe consider some lipo-suction (but I am a coward!!!)

    Invest some money in property around here and rent them out for holiday lets.

    Take all the family on a gorgeous once in a lifetime holiday.

    Make a donation to the RSPCA, NSPCC and the MacMillan Nurses Cancer Charity.

    That will do for now I think, LOL....

    Ahh the lottery...I AM going to win tonight/tomorrow night/wednesday night!! Haha. If I won I would:

    - Give all my family & close friends some money/presents

    - Buy my Nan & Grandad a new bungalow away from their
    noisy neighbours

    - Buy a nice big house with an indoor swimming pool &
    gym for me and a nice big house for my parents

    - Take my parents on holiday somewhere very hot

    - Give money to children's charities

    - If I won enough I'd leave work forever haha

    - Maybe invest in a business or something and make more
    money? lol

    Ahh...wishful thinking!!

    Treat all my loved ones in whatever way I could afford (again depends on winnings!)

    I'd pay off my two mortgages, buy houses in India, Florida, larger one in Fuerteventura & larger one here & travel the world first class.

    I'd give some money to friends & family but if I won a large amount I'd never tell anyone exactly how much I won.

    Ahhhhh to dream:D

    I'd like to win enough money to pay for my divorce... THEN (when my ex won't qualify for any) I'll win the lottery and do all the usual things (family, charity, big house).

    Also I'd like to set up a little school/place of safety, for children who live by picking through rubbish, on dumps. Poor little mites.

    if i won the lottory..

    i would pay off all my mums debts, ship her and the kids off to aussie and set her up for life. I would also pay for her to have her eyes operated on.

    then i would buy my sister the house of her dreams, in the catchment area of a good school, and set her up so that she only had to work to two days a week, so she could spend all her time with my neice untill she's old enough for school.


    i would also do the same for my best friend.


    then i would buy mine and joes first house, but not just our first, our dream house., that would be our home forever. Take us on holidays and pay for the wedding of my dreams! lol Start a college fund for our non exsistant children, lol

    pay for an inman aliner so that i could have my teeth straight..

    and buy my own salon, set up from scratch and run it how i think a salon should be run. . and pay for more courses to add to my hairdressing quals.

    I'd also donate a huge amount to breast cancer awarness and have regular bupa health checks for all my family and myself.


    i would also pay for private healthcare for my brother and his wife so that they could have the proper help they need for their conditions.

    and i'd buy Mott house in cornwall, and bring it up to standard, i love that house.

    and i'd set up my own slimmingworld group :)
