What would you do? FPQ 16th November

Here is Fandango’s provocative question for this week.

You just won a giant lottery jackpot. What are the first three things you’re going to do with the money you won?
Top of the list is KEEP IT QUIET.

We would charter a private plane so that we could take the dog and visit my brother in NZ, then tour the country for six months.

We would move…………. somewhere bigger but not too big, that was closer to a hospital and health care for both of us and the dog. Our next house would have

a chimney (for putting in a multi fuel stove)
a garage, large enough to have a workshop area at the back with power.
a substantial distance from the main road
an enclosed garden for Maya to play in (and potential for another dog for her to have a playmate, be it one of her own pups or another)
a large kitchen
a separate dining room from the lounge (so a kitchen diner would be acceptable)
3 bedrooms, at least one with an en suite.

Of course having all that money would mean we wouldn’t have to worry about the cost of living there.

If we could still drive, we would upgrade our vehicle for one that would accommodate  two dogs and two mobility scooters.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sounds very practical.

    Money can’t buy happiness but it can sure make you more comfortable! I think if I won a big jackpot, the first thing would be to vacation – in Europe (a geocaching whirlwind tour), second would be a house all on one level (brick, hardwood floors, and a hot tub), the third would be a housekeeper who would come to clean twice a week and keep the house spotless!

  4. It’s better to keep quiet indeed. A very practical plan, Di

    I’d be able to start a business with a chain of independent record and CD stores. I’d give some to the Red Cross charity (and others) and help out the NHS in some way. If I had any left; I’d just like to see the World.
