Houses, Cars + Holidays

The summer holidays are over, the kids are finally back at school and I don’t know about you but I need (1) a holiday to recover from having the girls at home with me for six weeks and (2) a lottery win to help my bank balance recover from feeding / entertaining them for six weeks. Seriously, how many snacks do children need every day?!

I often think about what I'd do if I won big on a lottery bet. It goes without saying that I'd give some money to charity and some to my family, but how would I spend whatever was left on myself and the girls?

The house would be the biggie of course. I love our little cottage so much but it's not without its flaws. The rooms are small and oh what I'd give for a hallway! An upstairs bathroom! A garden that isn't on a hill! Off street parking! My dream house genuinely wouldn't be huge but it would have a spare bedroom or two so that friends can come and stay, a large open plan kitchen with crittal doors opening into the garden and original wooden floorboards throughout. I’d love a bit of land too so that I could generally live the good life. And I’d treat us all to a beautiful upright piano as a housewarming gift.

I wouldn't be excessively flash with my choice of car either. It would be a beautifully restored old VW Beetle for me; I’ve wanted one since I first passed my driving test twenty years ago. I’d also buy a brand spanking new camper van for family surf trips down to the coast.

A holiday would be the very first thing I'd treat us all to. I’d love to do Route 66 and the girls would love to go to Australia to visit their cousins, so I'd pack us all off to travel the world for a couple of months, with no expense spared!

What would you do if you won a large sum of money?
