“If I was a rich girl, I would have all the money in the World, if I was a wealthy girl…!”
How amazing would it be to wake up one day and realise that you became rich overnight? That would be a dream come true! The only way I can think of having such a large amount of money would be by playing the lottery.
The National Lottery’s Lotto game is changing on 5th October, giving players more chances to win more prizes. Players will get £25 for matching 3 numbers in the draw (up from £10) and 4 numbers (from £60 to £100), and a new raffle guarantees at least 50 winners of £20,000 each draw! When the jackpot rolls, so does the raffle, meaning hundreds more guaranteed £20,000 prizes.
So what would I do if I had £20k? Perhaps I won’t be able to give up work, but I would make the most of it by having an amazing family holiday and buying a couple of things that we need.
Dream Holiday to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
I’ve always wanted to go to Disneyland – I mean, little man would love to meet Mickey Mouse. I checked online and found for around £1400 per person (so £4200 for the 3 of us), we would have 7 nights in Disneyland including flights, hotel, dining and park tickets, and $100 spending money!
It would be a holiday to remember and I am sure the whole family would have an amazing time!
New Family Car
We’ve never had a brand new car before, we usually buy used cars – around 10 years old or more – whatever we can fit in our budget. It would be amazing to have a new family car to take us on road trips and holidays.
The only problem would be finding a new car on a budget, I don’t think we would find it for £5k, so we could settle for 2010 model, such as this lovely Vauxhall Meriva.
Last but not least, we would use the remaining £800 to buy a new TV with 3D Smart blu-ray and replace our old TV.
That’s how I would spend £20k, I would put it towards a family holiday of a lifetime, but also get a new car and new TV that we need!
