Spending my fictional millions

There are so many things I would
love to own but the evident lack of money always gets in the way of letting me
live the dream! Of course I don’t let
the small fact of a tiny bank balance get in the way of daydreaming about what
I would get if I were ever lucky enough to win the lottery. I mean fantasizing might be all I ever get
to do, so I might as well enjoy that…

All the money ever goes on is
bills, activities for the boys, attractions and days out with them, more boring
bills and a giant food shop each week (they must be growing!) – if I am lucky
there might be a token few pounds left over so I can treat myself to a bar of
chocolate! But otherwise we never seem
to have any money left over after the necessities (or the ones you need anyway
to keep my two boys entertained and happy!) to save
up for the luxuries I so crave.

I think I should not just imagine
all these trappings of fortune I should actually try and make them happen. I have started writing a chic lit book, but
seeing as I have only got as far as page 1 (I have a great title and plot
skeleton in my defence!) I should not really rely on that to guarantee fame,
instead I am going to put my hope and dreams on the luck of the powerball lottery in the UK. Although perhaps scratch cards might be the
way to go after hearing of that fortunate man in Wales that won £250,000 the
other day!

So what am I pining after, well
since my holiday in Centre Parcs I
NEED a Jacuzzi bath, all those bubbles were so very relaxing after a day
running around the place. We have been
spoilt there, so it’s hard to go back to our standard bath with no fancy
trimmings! I think we work hard as a
family; we need to take time out to recuperate. I can just imagine relaxing for hours, surrounded by the soft glow
of candles and perhaps a cheeky glass of wine.

Something else I quite fancy is a hot tub! We are going away with my parents soon and
they were paying for the cottage so I was desperate to find one that included
the use of a hot tub, but sadly as they had left it so late all those cottages
with one had been booked up. But my time shall come, if I dream long and hard enough surely they will come true?
