Cash

Whoopee-doo! A letter has just arrived from Littlewoods Football Pools in Liverpool. I have won just under £100,000! £99,875.12 to be exact. It's almost unbelievable!

Rather than keeping all of this money to myself and my family, I have decided to give £10,000 to one lucky blogger! You have to spread the love around. At today's rates £10,000 is $13,094US.

I am open-minded about who will receive the money or for what purpose. To be in with a shout of winning it, all you have to do is to leave your bid in the comments below. Just tell me what you want the money for. Please don't go into too much detail. Just a brief, succinct explanation will do. Bids that are too lengthy will be rejected.

It could be you! Good luck!

    3. I think the full quote is " I may, Professor Lyall, be a trifle enthusiastic in my manner and dress, but I am no fool." from "Blameles" by Gail Carriger.

  8. My banqueting hall needs new gold leaf on all the chair legs. £10,000 would go some of the way to doing that. Alternatively the money could go towards providing the footman and gardener with a paid holiday. They're always bleating on about that.

    1. I suspect that you have rumbled me Christina. Everybosy knows that spaghetti does not grow on trees. It is mined.

  14. A windfall would be great right now. I am saving to replace the roof on my house and add new siding, as well. So far I have $ 10,000.00 US saved, but of course, not enough. So it will wait.
    I sure hope this is not an April fool's joke. I do enjoy reading your blog though, it offers some very different points of view.

  15. I'm no April Fool! But that much money would go a long way when granted in micro-loans to people in developing countries.

  17. Since I already have begun planning my bathroom renovation, your 10,000 pounds would mean I'd not need to tap into my own savings but could really splash out on a posh walk-in shower, wall-mounted toilet and chic sink/basin (whatever you prefer to call it). Add proper dark grey slate tiling for the floors and dimmed white for the walls, a set of new fluffy towels and other accessories, and with the 63,45 pounds left I'd go out for a nice meal with O.K.
