    If you did what would you do with the money? say 1 million pound!

    Firstly I would pay my Mortgage off and other bills
    Secondly put some in my children's bank accounts
    Thirdly go on a lovely cruise. :)

    hmmm, let me see!

    I'd give some to my family members, pay off my mortgage, buy a new house but keep this one for the boys when they're older, buy a holiday home if there was enough left and then have a fab holiday!

    Which reminds me! Take a look at this - he is my sisters husbands Uncles brother!

    Does this make it any clearer?
    My sisters DH - his Mums sister, her DH, his brother! So the brother of his Uncle by marriage! Clear as mud? :D

    But anyway, he's 25 million better off!

    Time to dream again :)

    I guess it would depend on how much I won, but I know for sure that I would give half straight away to St Luke's Hospice which is the hospice that looked after Dad in his final days. All I'd ask is that there was a plaque somewhere with my Dad's name on it

    I'd pay off our mortgage and treat friends to a holiday.

    If it was a ridiculous amount of money then I'd pay off friends' mortgages, I'd buy the girls and our other friends' two boys a house each so they could get on the housing ladder now.

    There's lots of other things but Chris says I would spend it all within a year making other people's lives better and forget to save something for our retirement









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    You know what, I'd be rather selfish....sorry, I'm ashamed to say that

    After paying off mortgages for DH's parents and DH and my siblings....and a couple of friends would get a huge gift, I'd try my hardest to use the money to move to Florida.

    DH and I have discussed this in the past (as you do) and both agree. We haven't had the best of lives so far so, it would be time to think of ourselves.

    More than a million.........then I'd buy houses for family and give ridiculous amounts to animal charities.

    buy s.c.a.m.p.s a new kennels and give them some money.
    buy a helicopter even though im terrified of flying so i could see my kids without having to drive 7 and half hours. then i would just go back to my normal life, had quite a "good life" before i left my ex and money does NOT buy happiness love and being loved is priceless :)
