    What would you do if you won a huge sum of money on the lottery, that is after sorting out family and friends, charities etc. What would you do for you.

    I would move back to the U.K. to Cheshire. I even know which house. It is opposite my best friend of 44 years. I would rent a house in France near Calais for all our animals until all were micro chipped etc.......some are. Defra rules supreme when it comes to getting animals into the country.

    I would give this house to two dear friends of ours who are struggling ,to live in for as long as they wanted. I would make sure there was enough money in the bank for them to be able to maintain it and have some fun and quality time themselves. They so deserve it.

    We would have a new car each......... all pretty standard stuff.

    The three biggies for me would be to visit New York and all the American girls on my little breast cancer site and pay for them to be in New York as well.

    The second would be to go to the races in Dubais.........oh god how I would love to do that.

    The third would be a tour of the U.K. taking in all the places i have wonderful memories of. DH has never lived in the U.K. and we have lived here for 28 years.
    The Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, A week or two in London, I love London......oh just all of the U.K.

    How brilliant to do just what you want without worrying about the dosh !!!!

    Just off to check yesterdays Euromillions.

    wow what a wide open question.

    I would do so much and its always changing, but as you say once ive sorted out family and friends i would do this:

    Have the wedding of my dreams (even though im not engaged yet - this would be in the plans!!!)

    Go on holiday for about a year.....cruising and sunning it up around the world - and visiting all the places i would ever want to see!

    Go on a shopping spree and buy some fabulous designer clothes!

    Buy a snazzy car - something like an Audi R8 in hot pink, or a Mercedes Maclaren SLR in cherry red (or both! why not)

    Get the house of my dreams in the location of my dreams - oh and a holiday home in Malibu would be nice too.

    Think that will do for starters!

    Oh and set up my own promotions agency - that discovered all the new music artists and set them on their way to stardom!! (I fancy myself as a female Simon Cowell!)

    x

    Buy diamonds and such from Tiffany and Co.

    How interesting that the car of choice is an Audi. I drive one now, it is an old model, an A4, but I love it's luxury feel. It would be the one for me as well,

    I'd do the usual - pay off debts, buy nice house/car etc and then I'd go to New Jersey to see Bon Jovi at their home stadium....if i won lots and lots I'd probably follow them around going to all their gigs :D

    I'd buy a bigger house in Fuerteventura; travel to all the places on my list, such as India (so much to see), America (again so much to see), Cambodia, Tibet, Sanya, & so many more. Put money in trust for my kids; I've got my eye on a nice Baume & Mercier watch so I'd buy that; I'd just love to spend lots of money on a pair of shoes, so I'd do that, I'm not into designer clothing so won't want to spend loads on that; well that'll do for starters:D

    See the family OK, buy a house with a walled garden to grow veg in , buy a HUGE greenhouse and travel to all the wonderful places I salivate over on tv but don't have the money to visit! THEN! I would have singing lessons! I'd love to have a voice strong enough to carry an aria! Oh and a season ticket on a box at Leeds Utd! And then let a deserving child and family go and watch them. (I would be travelling alot!) But they are my team! :)
    OH wants to run a sailing school for disadvantaged kids.

    WOW - you've given up so much for OH then! I can imagine the nostalgia you'd feel coming back...

    :8855: at first one! Also agree with the hair removal one, but more likely laser as electrolysis targets a single hair at a time :) Had laser up until nearly 2 years ago... Really need to start again, soon! :(

    Debts, damn debts! Holiday sounds like heaven...

    I don't wanna move house :( I love my house :( Maybe a second house for everyone else to move into and a complete do-over of this one?! Carsss, plural! PT, never thought of one! Chef, yummm... Private schools, definitely. Oz, I really want to go to Oz, might just buy a third house there!

    I want a cruise too! Can I come with? :)

    Clothes, yay! After the PT has worked his magic though... I don't fancy buying something in a size I won't fit into in a month, even if I could buy it in every single available size and colour!

    There's nothing better than a sexy car to make a woman feel gooooood :rolleyes:

    Oof! :p

    15 million kids... money can't help me there, gotta get my special life partner for that one... *dreams*

    I'll join ya! xxx
