Let’s Pretend January 3, 2009

Posted by The Mom in Uncategorized.

It has been a long time since I played “I won the Lotto”.  Now that there is no IVF to pay for, the expenditure changes.

I would clear the mortgage on the shop, buy the farm (literally not figuratively) & apply for planning permission for 3000sq ft with geothermal underfloor heating.  I would have LOTS of poly tunnels.

I am sure I would replace my car but with what I don’t know.  I would buy M a new car too but again I don’t know what.

The absolute first thing I would do is get a porch on the front of my house.  It is DAMN cold here right now and there is a gale blowing in through the gaps around my front door.

What would you do?

I dunno what I’d do, I’ll have to think about it and come back to you, but I’d love to be loaded so that D didn’t have to work…

Extend the house- get the ideal family kitchen that’s already fully planned in my head. It opens right into the garden and is the heart of the home. I’d also put in a playroom/study for the girls and try somehow get a ensuite in and a utility room too. Then a nice holiday, no, a really amazing holiday for my whole family as it’s been too long and another trip just the four of us, probably to the states, and buy an apartment in NYC. Then sit on the rest and enjoy not having to worry.

We were out in the garden today & it made me think of this post about polytunnels and wonder whether you plan on doing a lot of growing this year?
If you do please blog it – it’s great to hear about other people’s successes (and failures)
