Saw in the news that the couple who recently won Ã‚Â£58m gave their Ã‚Â£400,000 house and car to their cleaner. What a great story - I suggested it to my cleaner and she said she would be happy with her settlement in the divorce!!!
A bigger house, a dog and a nice long holiday! actually I should probably go on holiday before I get the dog so I don't have to pay for Kennels! Just because I'm rich now doesn't mean I should be wasteful.......
I'm glad I'm not the only one who wastes his time on this subject!
Peter Jones is self-made so his ideas for his kids will be different to that of a lottery winner,
he also has a fan-base so is concious of what he says and most definately has PR people to
advise on the content. The basic idea of his is all very nice and twee but was it a hasty answer
to a question to portray himself as a down-to-earth kind of guy who wasn't going to make it
easy for his kids.
The trouble is like someone has already mentioned there is a huge control issue. My Dad had his own
Business for over 20yrs and employed 20 people and for me and my brother he came up with little financial
Incentives all through our life - even now (I'm 37 my brother 34) he tries to interfere, my brother and I
Were so conditioned to that up-bringing that we both find it hard to make decissions / choices
Without feeling it has to be run past Dad. My brother is actually in therapy over it and I am
only just starting to realise the changes I need to make to "break free".
I do the lotto and Euro Millions online and my heart races when I get that e-mail to say there is
Exciting news about my ticket so log into my account to find Â£8.20 the largest win so far.
Even though I think the jackpots are rediculous and rather than one person winning
Â£94M think it would be better if 94 people won Â£1M I would go bananas if I won it big.
I don't think there is anything I would do that hasn't already been said but one thing
I'm sure of if I was to give anything to anyone there would be no conditions attached.
Was talking to a friend the other day who is a Glasgow Rangers fan - he said that if he won the lottery he would give the club Â£10milion on condition that he play for Rangers in the old firm game against Celtic (only the last 15 minutes).
He also said that if Rangers were awarded a penalty he would have to take it.
