What I Would Do If I Won the Lotto ♥

 *This post is in collaboration with Lottoland, however, as always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own.

What would I do if I won the lotto? Believe it or not, this is something I've actually thought long and hard about a few times - it's okay to dream, right? In fact, I once did have a dream that I won the Euromillions. A large lump sum of €148 to be exact, and since then, that huge figure has been emblazoned on my mind. That would be such a life-changing amount to myself and my family.

There are so many things I would like in life, but if I ever won the lotto, the first thing I would have to buy is my own home. I long to put down roots for my children and buying (or building if I couldn't find any place I fell in love with) our own home would be an absolute dream come true.

My dream is to have a house in the countryside with a wildflower garden, a sunny conservatory and views of the sea - I'm not asking much am I? I'd also love it to be in walking distance of the boys' school and have plenty of space for us and all our things. If I won a big lump sum in the lotto I may even contemplate having an indoor swimming pool! That'd be the life.

Also, as Jacek is from South Africa, I think I'd have to buy a house there too, so he could be closer to his parents and then we could spend one half of the year in Ireland and the other in South Africa living in an eternal state of spring and summers!
The next thing I would do is give money to my family, which would allow them to fulfill their own dreams. We've never been rich people, so being able to share the wealth with those who have always been there for me would be a wonderful thing to be able to do.

We also all need new cars and I've love to have a vintage looking car like a Nissan Figaro - although I'm not sure where I'd be able to fit the kids! I mean just look at this floral print Nissan Figaro, could it be anymore me?!

Finally, I'd like to travel around the world, visiting the most exotic of locations and giving my children the best education they could possibly get experiencing travel, different cultures and experiencing the earth around them. I'd love to be able to photograph the flowers and scenery of lots of different places around the world with the best of equipment and be able to blog about it here and share our experiences on our vlog so that when we're all older we can look back at all our precious memories and the happy times.

Fingers crossed one day my lotto dreams come true! What would you do if you won the lotto?


  1. My dream is also to be able to afford to buy or even rent a home of my own. I'm in my 50s and single so I'll never get a mortgage and being unable to work means I can't even save for a deposit. At the moment I'm looking after Mum in the family home but as she's 84, plus the fact that they took money out of the value of the house to fund College fees, holidays, home improvements etc., means that at some stage the house will have to be sold & whatever's left divided between my sister & I. I am so scared of being homeless and completely reliant on the State. I try not to let it bring me down but there are days when I just can't stop thinking about it.

    1. Oh Kate, I'm so sorry you're also in this situation. It's anxiety inducing isn't it? We have to be out of our current house by July and I worry so much about being homeless with the kids. Lets hope it never comes to that, for the both of us. Sending you lots of love <3
