What would you spend £20,000 on?

We've all done it-sat waiting on the edge of your seats when the first 2 numbers of the lottery are on your ticket, and then, nothing!

We've all played the 'what would you spend the winnings on if you did win the lottery game', before you know it you are dreaming of paradise holidays, manor houses, and fast cars!

If I was to win £20,000 I think I would definitely put it towards a bigger house, as lovely as our little coach house is, we as a family of 4 are starting to grow out of it. Every nook and cranny is filled, my teeny tiny kitchen drives me insane every dinner time when the pan I want is wedged in the one of 4 tiny cupboards. I longing look at other people's gardens, I dream of the boys running about on our own patch of grass, water fights, paddling pools, footballs, messy play and BBQ's, I'm no gardener but I'd love to try and grow rhubarb, and have a low maintenance wild border of flowers to call our own. I'm not much of a DIYer but I'd love to make some things for the boys to play in the garden, I have seen some fabulous ideas from fellow bloggers and of course on Pinterest!

It wouldn't be a big house, it probably wouldn't be our forever house, but you know what, it would be a house where we could create more memories, be more of an entertaining house, the boys might even have their own rooms and we would have a bedroom to ourselves. Living on one level at the moment means we can't easily have people over of an evening as Alex's room is right next to the lounge so it would be lovely for that.

A girl can dream, but you never know, you've got to be in it to win it! Good luck to all other entrants I am sure the money will go to good use :)
