Win £50 at Lottoland


“If I won the lottery…” – that old one creeps into conversation time and time again, doesn’t it? EVERYONE has an idea of what they’d do with their winnings. I have even bargained with the amount I’d potentially win, £84million? £60 million, goodness, I’d be happy with just a couple of million! Of course – just for the record, in case the Universe is listening, I wouldn’t mind winning a dirty fat jackpot.

What would your spend list look like if you won the lottery? I have been indulging in the idea again (I know!)…


If I won the jackpot (I wonder who invented that word?) I think my first spend would be on my home. You know, that new kitchen I’ve been banging on about since we moved in 8 years ago. The block paving out front which needs re-laying, the garden fence and patio area, new windows, new front door, re-plastered walls. That would take care of a good 30 – 40k, oh and the roof felt needs renewing too! Then it strikes me, I COULD BUY A NEW HOUSE and get ‘people in’ to decorate it to my specification. I’ve always longed for a house project to take on.

I could buy another property in Thanet, maybe in Margate, a town which is really on the rise. I could also buy a property on Lake Garda having just spent a fabulous 10 days there with Megan. Imagine, I could spend Christmases with her and summer holidays, it would be marvellous.


Of course, I’d look after my family and hand out very generous amounts of cash. Debts would be paid off, houses bought and cash sums available for all. I’d really enjoy helping them out too.


If I won the lottery, I wouldn’t waste any time at all in booking up some fabulous dream holidays that I have been thinking about forever. One of my earliest posts on Mari’s World was a list of places I’d like to visit, I could start crossing them off my bucket list. Remember that cruise I nearly won? I’d book that. Take the twins and family (whoever wants to come) to Orlando Florida. I’d love to revisit New York, Barcelona, Paris and Italy. I’d revisit Venice, Florence, Rome, Puglia. I’d take the girls up Etna in Sicily and tour around Sardegna.

Beach holidays to Cyprus and Greece would be on the list and I would ‘do’ South America in style taking 90 days or maybe longer.

At this point, I’m most likely going to need a full-time tutor for the girls too!


Oh. My. God! The thought of going shopping without any worry – can I afford it? Do I really need it? Can you imagine the fun? Shopping with a bottomless wallet, buying those things you’ve always wanted but could never afford. Theatre tickets, restaurants, a new car, oh which one? An electric car like the BMW we trialled for six weeks?


First off, I’d like to donate to our local school where I work. There are a few areas that could do with a cash injection and it would be a fun project to take on. I would support local charities for the old, for the young and the homeless. Some of the charities very close to my heart who would also receive donations are The Smile Train charity, The Miscarriage AssociationClic Sargent and The Princess Trust.

    It all depends on how much I’d won. If it was big I would pay off my family members mortgage & move another family member into a different home one that is easier for them. For me I would buy ….that’s a secret shhh

    First thing I would do is give some to family & friends, then set up trust funds for my son, nieces & nephews. After that would be a new house, some travelling and investing the rest in property so that it would provide a long term income!

    House, car, holiday – in that order. I’ve always wanted a DS3 in purple (don’t judge!) & I’d book a holiday somewhere close first such as the Algarve, then the Caribbean. I was very poorly coming back from Jamaica the last time I was on a plane & they ended up asking the captain if they could open the emergency medical box! So this is why I’d go somewhere in Europe first to get my air legs back! Once that was done I would travel loads. I do want to go to Florence, Rome, Venice, Prague, Barcelona & Australia.
