#Blogtober16 Day 3: If You Won The Lottery You Would… ?

Every day for the month of October I shall be writing a blog post, inspired by a given theme for #Blogtober16. Each day bloggers are given a title, and we come up with something. So far we have been given a little bit about me, and I have shared an old (embarrassing) photo of myself. Today, I must discuss what I would do if I won the lottery.

Genuinely I have no idea. This weekends Euromillions jackpot is estimated at £122,000,000. What the flying f*** would I do with £122 million? I would definitely give my dad £5m, Nanny Doodif £5m, Jays parents £5m, My sisters £2m each, My brother-in-laws £2m each, My mates a million each. So that’s me giving £30m away instantly.

But would I? Would I not just buy them all a nice home? Pay off their debts? Get them a new car each? Buy my dad a new motorbike and my sister that Pony she’s always wanted? I’d get my husband his first guitar again. He sold it when we had our first born to make some money and I know he misses that guitar so much.

I know that I would buy us a nice 4 or 5 bed country property. Nothing too large or obscene. Something big enough for my kids, parties, and work but small enough to still be able to clean. But would I not just hire a cleaner?

I’d probably buy a caravan somewhere on the Cornish coast- I love it there. I’d renew our wedding vows- don’t get me wrong our wedding was lovely, but I’d like to do it with some money this time, unlike on a shoestring as it was before. I’d definitely have another baby, or 2. I might even get myself a new sofa. I’d definitely get myself a new sofa.

Genuinely, I have no idea what I would do. I’d just make sure I’m comfortable and then give the rest away. £122m is a disgusting amount of money. Tbh, just winning a tenner on the lottery would be nice. If I had an extra £10 I’d buy myself some new socks. My old ones have holes in them now.

But even if I did win the big money, I doubt I’d still buy loo roll.
