Are you playing EuroMillions?

pound_coinsThis Friday’s jackpot is sitting at £110 million! 

Picture a pound coin – got it? Now picture a pile of 110 of them. Now picture 1 million of those piles – yup – got it now? That’s how much you could win in this Friday’s jackpot!

Considering the news I got yesterday (more on that later in the week) I thought it fortuitous to purchase a few tickets to this Friday’s draw. It’s only £4 a ticket – what have you got to lose? Just think of the possibilities.

A friend posted earlier this month about what she would do if she won the lottery. My wife just asked me what I’d do if I didn’t *have* to work anymore? You know what – I’d probably still do what I do now, develop software and solutions and blog – except the difference would be I wouldn’t *need* to do them for money and I could pick the jobs I wanted and even do charity software development – I wouldn’t know what to do with myself otherwise. 

A nice piece of land for us so that we can build a house to our own specifications, a good family car (and of course something nice for daddy to take for a spin on Sunday morning’s). We’d probably give a sizeable chunk to each other’s brothers and sisters to help them out too. Other than that I somehow doubt we’d change otherwise, other than a few wise investments for our kids’ futures.

What would you do? Would you change? Would you know how?
