Years ago, I used to think about having a go on the Irish lottery after hearing how well some of my friends did when playing. Trouble was, I was too nervous to go into the betting shop! Now, of course, I don’t need to go to the betting shop because I can play online 🙂
I’m sure many of us have thought about what we would do if we were to win big on the lottery. I know I have! Before we stopped playing the lottery, I’d think about how having all that money would change our lives.
Surprisingly my first thought has never been to buy a huge house or a new car. I’d mostly love to be able to go grocery shopping without being on a strict budget.
It would be lovely to be able to try a new recipe for dinner every day without worrying about the cost of the groceries 🙂
We bought this house nearly 4 years ago and we’re really very happy here. I don’t think I could face going through another house move. Instead of moving, we’d make some changes to this house. I’d want a bigger kitchen, a separate dining room and a utility room adding. We’d make a proper office for Ant (his office is in the garage, which is very cold!) on the second floor which will open onto a balcony. He loves the idea of having a balcony.
The whole garden would be treated to an Alan Titchmarsh style makeover. We’d get professionals in to create a wonderful wildlife pond, waterfall and stream. Ant would get an electrician and plumber in to finish off his outdoor kitchen.
He also wants a new shed/summerhouse building at the top of the garden. We’d sit back with a coffee and watch all the workmen transform our garden!
A trip to New York with my girls at Christmas is one of my dreams. Another is to take them and Aiden to Disneyworld in Florida.
Ant’s dream holiday would be a road trip to Europe and I want to visit a European Christmas market, or 2!
What would you do if you won the lottery?
