30 Day Blogging Challenge // Day 23. If You Won The Lottery

The infamous ' If you won the lottery ' question. I hope you're ready for this people because there is alot i would do. Let's say for argument sake i won 100 million, then i'm free to say the following without worrying about being skint haha.

1. Handouts to the family - I have always said that this would be the first thing i would do when the cheque cleared. Carl's parents and my mum would get 2 million each, our siblings would get a million each and i would put money into a trust fund for mine and Carl's 2 nieces and 5 nephews. Sarah would get a million pounds put into a trust fund and she would have an allowance once she reaches 13.

2. Pay off our debts - Me and Carl are far from being up to our ears in it but we do have bills that need paying and have some debts to pay off. I would clear all of them so that we never had to worry about them.

3. Do up the house and gardens - Frankly, i'm fed up decorating and gardening is my least favourite chore of all. I would pay decorators to come in and redo the whole house aswell as fit a whole new bathroom, an outside office for me and a loft conversion. Also i would hire landscapers to give my mum the garden of her dreams. Not to mention getting the front one paved over so we have a proper driveway of our own and not a shared one.

4.  A massive family holiday - Carl went on holiday with his family to Lanzarote last year, i couldn't go because it was during term time and of course i couldn't take Saz out of school. It's been 7 years since i went abroad and i miss the feeling of the sun on my face. I would take both of our families on a massive holiday somewhere hot. Me, Carl, Saz, My Mum & all of Carl's family together, it would be amazing.

5. Take Saz to Disney World - I have made this promise to Saz for so long now and to go there costs a fortune but if money wasn't a problem, i would take her to Florida for a full 2 weeks of Disney madness. 

6. Take Carl shopping - Carl really loves his fishing and there are so many things that he wants but the price range is well out of our budget. I would take him shopping and let him buy whatever he wanted, including the infamous £3000 fishing pole he so desperately wants at the minute.

7. Mother and daughter shopping trip - I have sacrificed what money i have and spent it on Sarah and i have done since the day she was born. If money was so freely available to me, i would take her shopping in London and after she got everything she could possibly want, i would indulge myself for the first time in god knows how long and buy everything in sight without worrying how much money i would have for the rest of the week. It would be amazing to be able to do that.

8. Quit my job - I have debated this one before when i've been asked this question but in this job i'm in right now, i would definitely quit. I always thought that i would be bored rigid but no, i wouldn't. I would do blogging and YouTube and i would be incredibly happy doing so.

9. Donate to animal, childrens and cancer charities - This is very important to me. I would donate a million pounds to RSPCA, RSPB and cat charities. A million pounds would go to NSPCC and a million pounds would go to Cancer Research UK which is a cause very close to my heart.

10. Trips to New York & Paris with Carl - We rarely get any proper time together. We are either working, keeping Saz entertained or too skint. I would love for us to go to Paris which is one of the most beautiful places in the world and somewhere i dream of going back to ( i went when i was 5 with my parents but was too young to appreciate it ) and a trip away to New York, my dream destination. Just some me and him time in romantic cities would be absolutely amazing. 


  1. Think I may need to re-think what I'd spend mine on after reading this! (However, I don't even buy lottery tickets so the chances of it happening are a big fat zero!)

    1. I rarely buy them either. I generally go for a scratch card x
