Who wants to be a millionaire?

Well, me, obviously! I am not driven by money, but it would be so nice to have a bit more.

The BBC news the other morning was discussing the probability of winning the UK lottery and said we were more likely to be hit by an asteroid. I am sure the chances are minute. The only reason I play the lottery is because I belong to a syndicate at work. I couldn’t face them winning and skipping off to their yachts and leaving me behind!!

Back in the real world, because I know my chances of winning the lottery are so small I will keep focussing on my budget. I know what I want to achieve over and above ‘just getting by’. I need to get the new woodburner installed so that will be an expense and I am first saving for that. Then I will start saving to get the electrics done in the house – the lights and power sockets in some parts need a lot of work and I have had an estimate for £1200.

But I still want a holiday if possible. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. I am more than happy to camp but Mr S is not keen. This is because the last time we did it, in Dorset, we came back to find our tent, pitched on a hill for a splendid sea view, was about to take off. A kind fellow camper was hanging on to it for us! Honestly, some folk are so easily discouraged! We will see 🙂 my lottery numbers might still come up…

  1. Hey there, my hubby says if you don’t play, then you really don’t have a chance to win, and somebody has to win! I’m like you…not a chance in h***.

  2. We got a lucky dip once and ended up getting 5 numbers – it was only 90 quid but at the time we had no money for food or petrol so it seemed like a godsend to us! I think it’s always proportionate! 🙂 I wouldn’t know what to do with a million! I’d probably waste it!

    But i agree with you – it would suck if the syndicate won and you’d not taken part!!

    Fingers crossed for you! 😉

  3. Just think, if you won the lottery you could hire someone to hold onto your tent!

    I had the best fun in a work lottery, when 78 people were in the Super Big whatever it was called pool, and we won about a dollar each. Then, like high rollers, we all said, let it roll!! and we lost our tiny bet in the next drawing, but it was the most fun you can get while it lasted.

    If you win, I have a little wishlist to send you..
