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…
