I'd spent my time travelling and tinkering around with old classic cars.
I certainly wouldn't work!!!!
To start with I'd make sure all the rest of my family could also retire too but throwing each £1-2million...
Then I'd put the money in the bank to make interest and travel round the world for a few years....
Easy peasy... A relaxed approach and spend a nice month or so at each place to really get a feel for it...
Come back and I would have even more money

I'd probably still live quite a normal existence. Get a nice big house somewhere quiet near the coast with plenty of garage space and do up some cool modern classics. I can't say I'd go for the Ferraris like most lottery winners because I have super long legs and can't fit into them. I'd honestly be happy with a decent MGF and a Pug 205.
- I'd buy Arena-Essex raceway and probably the speedway team too. Probably rebuild the place and make my home there.
- Throw a million on the stock market. For fun.
- Fund a no expenses spared search party for EduTech's sunglasses.
- Oh and I am shocked no-one has said this yet! Become an Edugeek Sponsor!
I would make a lot of people very happy............................................. .........................financially ;D
Well what do you think I meant!!! ;D
I read or heard an interview with a big lottery winner a while back and he said that being able to buy whatever you want wasn't the best thing about being so rich. The novelty of that bit wore off surprisingly quickly because after a while the buzz from spending large sums reduces somewhat.
It was having enough money that he didn't need to worry about any everyday problems that came up...like just being to call a plumber (he was very rich after all) whenever he needed to without worrying about the cost or being able to replace anything that broke down was what made life much more relaxing...
Having said all that...I would build my dream eco house near the coast with a tower so I could have a computer/playroom (same thing really) with 360 degree views....and a huge underground garage/workshop for my cars etc...
I'd go 'Minecraft' and have a tall tower built, with torches on the outside, and a staircase made from wool...
Well as an overpaid marketing guru at camelot once said, you've got to be in it to win it, so I've just brought a ticket for the hell of it.
