    I'd finish whatever I'm doing, just to not waste it, although probably a lot slower than what I am doing now.

    Not sure about work etc though.

    Finish studies personally (are you trying to tell us youve won???) then take a year out and travel.

    Best Wishes

    Your new best friend :lol:

    ha! I think its wishfull thinking, dreaming that I could win and be on a tropical island instead of a exam room in June....

    I'd probably finish my studies, but slower like Rinske said.

    I won the lottery - 5 numbers once, but only got £70, everyone else won at the same time!!!!

    I'm on my last 2 exams, so it'd make bugger all difference now to my AAT studies, but I think I'd still carry on the same and do ATT. I'd probably do it more quickly as I could afford to give up work and employ a Nanny/Cook/Housekeeper/Gardener and King Dong to keep me amused between studying !!!!!!!

    IT'S ALL A FANTASY THOUGH - AS I DON'T ROUTINELY BUY A LOTTERY TICKET !!!!!

    That is true! If I go work part time only or not at all, hire someone to do all the choires, I have so much more time to actually study!

    it doesn't matter for AAT indeed, but for whatever comes next, I could just do it faster instead of slower!

    Could you really work?

    Get up on a rainy cold Monday morning and go to work? When you could be anywhere you want...

    I'd be bored not doing anything all day....

    I mean once I win the lottery I can choose where I want to work and how many hours.
    More likely I start my own business though!

    I'm going to be really boring, I would pay off my brothers mortgage, then pay off mine.

    I would take the whole family (and extended family) on a right good holiday.

    I wouldn't work but would do some voluntary work, I don't think I could stay at home doing nothing and I would probably study something else, though what I don't know.

    Snap, although I'd have to pay off my sister and brother in laws mortgages as well as my sisters, and ours of course so would need a very substantial win lol

    Take the extended family on holiday? If I had to go with them I'd make it 10 days max!

    Voluntary work would be a dream, I couldn't sit around doing nothing.

    unlucky

    we cant play it over here, so we have to rely on family remembering to put our numbers on and then of course telling us

    i would continue to study but not feel pressured, i still would like to have letters after my name as i have worked hard so far.

    i would continue to work as i cannot be doing with daytime tv, but it would be for myself doing the hours i want and have the holidays i want.

    and of course it would all be done with my new huge boobs which i have always said i would buy (maybe that is why i have not won yet lol)

    still not allowed as the isp is registered. it is a right buggerance and it really pees alot of soldiers and raf off.

    once soldier did do it online and won quite a bit but the national lottery refused to pay him as he did not live in the UK. there was hell on over here.

    I think I'd treat myself to the new Peaugot RCZ (or whatever it is) instead of swapping for another new little Citroen. First MOT's due next week & I can't be bothered with the hassle:(

    I thinka Porsche Boxter Convertible for the summer, an Audi R8 for the winter, and a Merc S-class if I have to drive any distance. House or flat in London and I'd better see the family right, I suppose. I quite fancy doing a multimedia Design degree so I can learn to do the bits of my job I actually like properly or possibly something whacky like a Maths degree.

    Or maybe move to Brazil and blow it all on young women with loose morals :001_smile:

    Are you a millipede????? :lol:

    I think I'd come shoe shopping with you too, I like the idea of lots of shoes - even if I've only got two feet to put them on!

    Then I should like a nice place to put my shoe collection ..... um, sparkly shoe cupboard in big new house!

    Nope, I'm a woman :lol:

    Yes, group shoe shopping mission!

    Actually, I'd pay off the mortgage, and boyfriend's and brother's, chuck a bit in regular savings, lock away the rest and live on the interest. But given this is all hypothetical as I don't even buy lottery tickets, I'm dreaming about the shoes!!! :-)

    Shoeshopping is one thing I never understood.... Horrible...

    Got to be done, but I'd rather do something else!

    Now clothes shopping used to good. You walk in one store, you say you need 2-3 trousers in your size, they come bring them all, you fit them, make a choice, start combining it with shirts etc and then go home and be all done for half a year, apart from the odd shirts and underwear/ socks now and then, but that's just running in the cheap store nearby, grabbing a few and see how long it lasts....

    Nowadays it's skipping most stores as they don't have my size, try 3 stores, find nothing nice, go home empty handed, and wonder where to get the trousers/ skirts. Although sometimes I am lucky and find some trousers.

    I have to say I much prefer shoe shopping online. I have to really be in the mood for going shopping in person. It's the clothes and shoes I like, not the shopping to get them. That can be a complete pain. Jeans.... don't even get me started on how hard it is to get jeans that fit!
