      Re: if you won the lottery

      How many people sit somewhere from time to time and have this conversation?"What would we do if we won the lottery?"With the odds stacked heavily against the likelihood of it happening anyway.But hey some us are born optimists and personally when I do win the lottery I'll:-

      1) Buy a house in the local area
      2) Buy a house/flat by the sea 'cos I love the sea (ex-matelot so bound to say that eh!)
      3) Cut down on my hours so that I can work part-time.Let's face it, fishing and watching the world go by is alright for so long.....
      4) Give a reasonable donation to my favourite cause, i.e. Reading Football Club, 'cos now we're in the Prem we need all the money we can get.
      5) As for the remainder???????More lottery tickets.

      Everyone wants to leave the UK because native british people have a crap quality of life and the UK is the probably the dearest place to live.

      It would have been better if Britain had lost both wars, i'd have been better off being German.

      Sorry to be boring but am with the others here. Definitely move out of the UK and become a beach bum.

      Re: if you won the lottery

      Well, I have a beautiful wife, we're going to have a kid in January.
      We're planning to build a house in 2-3 yrs, with a reasonable loan, paying it off and having 1-2 kids in the next 10 years.
      I think having such plans/dreams and working for them makes one happy, it might not be the same just getting it.
      So I'm not buying lottery tickets, but keep my fingers crossed for you guys.. )

      Re: if you won the lottery

      Where to start...

      1. Pay my debts off.
      2. Buy my family a house each.
      3. Get a box at NUFC for life, for when I pop back to the UK.
      4. Buy a Rolex.
      5. Pack my job in without giving notice.
      6. Buy a house in Bangkok.
      7. Buy a house on Koh Phi Phi, where they filmed 'The Beach'.
      8. Do the Inca Trail.
      9. Walk along the great wall of china.
      10. Buy and run a coffee shop in Amsterdam
      11. Give money to Mind (the charity)
      12. Enjoy myself.

      Bit too much to work for there, so I think a lottery win would be the only way I'd get them all!

      I am working towards one or two of them though, and am determined to get them, much more satisfying, as mentioned above.

      There you go.

      realist, you wouldn't die trying to fly, trust me i have my pilot's licence, it's nerve racking the first few hours but after that it's not as hard as people think.

      it cost me just over 6000 to get my licence - i did 2 lessons a week, if you ever can do it i would seriously recommend it.

      nothing like flying over the M1 when there are major jams hehe.

      I wouldn't buy a house in another country I'd rather spend money travelling and seeing the world! The rest I'd bank! Oh and I'd donate something to this place too!!
