I thought it was about time to dip my toes into Ehell, and starting here would work.
DH and I have talked about this a lot, it's one of our fantasy conversations.
First we would have a huge party with fantastic food and the best party bags imaginable, each one containing things geared towards the receiver. I would also try to hire Eddie Izzard to perform at the party.
We would help out our family and friends, including paying off debts and buying houses and cars.
Then a big group trip to Florida and a smaller trip to New York, as my sister really wants to go back there.
We would then search for the right place to build a big house, or the empty shell of a house to build into. It would have to have a library, a HUGE kitchen with a pantry, a really big room for DH and DS's hobbies, which apparently would need to have a pool table, air hockey and numerous old arcade games and pinball machine. The most important thing would be my own bathroom. We have one bathroom between the four of us right now and I long for my own deep, free-standing bath with a bookcase and fridge within easy reach.
DH and I have a list of charities that we would support, each of which are dear to our hearts. I would love to be able to go to the local Children's Hospice and say "What do you need?" and to write them a cheque.
But most of all, I'd want the money to bring happiness, joy and knowledge into all our lives
