There are so many things I say ‘I’d love that if only I had the money’ about and BritMums have now given us open opportunity to put our dreams on paper and share them with the world.
So what would I do if I won £20,000?
Top of my list is paying off my debts to people – my parents and Caius’s Ma – they could have what they are owed plus extra for being ace
Then I’d get a Dual-Fuel Range Cooker. Something like this one I think:
I have always dreamed of having a proper range cooker (and ideally the giant country kitchen to go with it, but I’m willing to compromise) and it would almost definitely be one of the first things I splashed out on.
Then I’d sort out some sort of a holiday for us all because you can’t beat family adventures and it would be nice to stay somewhere a bit more comfy than a Travelodge.
I’d buy the kids a cool outdoor playset too, something that would last years and keep them, if not quiet, then entertained. It would be like having a play park in the back garden.
Then I’d buy the complete box-set of Battlestar Galactica because I have wanted it for ages and then I’d go and have a binge in Waterstones and guilt-free spend lots of money on new books (I think a £250 book splurge would make me the happiest person in the world for a long long time…)
I’d give £3,000 to Bath Cats & Dogs Home because I love the work they do and wish I could support them more than I currently do.
And £3,000 to my church to pay them back for all the love and support they have given me over the years and to help with the on-going running costs of the building.
By my count I’ve reached about £15,000 – this money spending thing is actually quite hard!!
The last £5,000 would be split between the kids to save up for when they’re 18 – I’d have to be a bit sensible with it afterall.
What would you spend £20K on if you got the chance?
