If I won the lottery...


Do you ever dream of winning the lottery? I'm sure we all do occasionally. I know I do and despite winning the odd lucky £50 every couple of years I've sadly never won a substantial amount. But of course that doesn't stop me from dreaming. Even 100,000 would be amazing to put down a deposit on a house, buy a new car and go on a few holidays. I've never really been one to gamble, but I do like to play the lottery most weeks (when I remember) and I also like to buy the odd scratch card here or there, but as they say you've got to be in it to win it. There are so many ways to increase your chances of winning these days such as playing the Euromillions or Irish Lottery online with websites such as LottoLand.

As a family of three with only one income money is tight. I currently rent, don't have a top of the range car, and we go on holiday once a year if we are lucky. 

Here's a list of things that I would do if I won the lottery:

I'd carry on working

Yep, honestly I would. I know many people say the first thing they'd do is quit their job. But i'm not one for doing nothing and would still want to work mainly for the social life and to feel like I'm still earning my own money. Whether it be in the job I currently do or working for myself who knows! 

I'd buy my own house

I'd buy a house for myself. Nothing too extravagant like a 10 bedroom mansion but I'd definitely buy a nice 4 or 5 bedroom family home on a nice new estate with a utility room and nice kitchen with an island. I love new build homes so would also love to design my own house one day and have it exactly how I want. I'm forever saving photos on Instagram of houses and decor that I fall in love with. 

I would also most likely buy a property and do it up. Maybe a two bedroom apartment or a nice little family home and then rent it out. I love decorating so this would fuse my habit. 

Take my whole family on holiday

Everyone dreams of going on holiday if they'd win the lottery so no exception here. I'd definitely book an all inclusive 5* two week holiday in the sun for my whole family and I. I'd also plan some other holidays for across the year every few months or so, a two week holiday to Disney world in Florida and also a trip to New York as well as ticking off some other places on my bucket list. 

Buy a new car

Lots of people tend to splash out and buy a top of the range car worth hundred of thousands but all I'd want is a nice range rover or an Audi. I'm not really into cars to be honest but of course it would be nice to treat myself to a brand new one.

Put some in savings

This may be pretty boring but I think it's a smart move. I wouldn't go all out and spend all of the winnings (depending on how much I won of course). I'd definitely want to invest and save some of the money whilst also making some interest in the bank. I'd also put some into the kids saving accounts for when they are older to buy their first cars and enough for a deposit for their first homes too. 

I don't think I would go mad and blow the money on ridiculous things, or at least I hope I wouldn't. I'd like to think I would be sensible and make the most of the winnings. I'd also prefer to remain anonymous. I know many people like to tell the world but I'd rather not tell everyone apart from family and close friends as I wouldn't want to be treated any different.

What would you do if you won big on the lottery?

  1. If I won the lottery...sigh...if only! I would pay off EVERYTHING and put aside money for my son for college. I'd probably quit my full time job so I can stay home and focus on my side businesses...and, if I really want to dream big, open the non-profit I've been thinking of opening. :)

    1. DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

      It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.

  2. Ah we can all dream! You are right about being in it to win it, but I've always felt I may end up spending more money on the lottery than I'd ever win - which I suppose isn't the attitude to have! I love that your choices are all very down to earth and simple, people tend to get in over their heads when they have a lot of money but for so many people it'd just be about making life easier for yourself, rather than buying ridiculous things!

  5. Hi all, Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup. My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
