NC for this as I remained anonymous, which was fairly pointless as I did tell some family and friends and it spread from there.

Was it everything you imagined it would be?

Whats the first thing you bought?
Who did you tell first?
Do you still work?
Do you still have most of your money?

How did it affect your relationship, if you're in one?

Now that the excitement has worn off, do you think you’re happier now than you were before your win?

PotteringAlong Tue 15-Jun-21 16:14:17

How much did you win and how much do you have left?

What was the fallout from your family & friends telling your secret - do you know who blabbed?

Cheeseandlobster Tue 15-Jun-21 16:14:36

Did you lose any friends over it? I knew a lottery winner who lost a lot of friends and she told me she wished she hadn't won. She told everyone before she had a chance to think it through I think

BelleClapper Tue 15-Jun-21 16:14:56

Ooh this is an interesting one.

How much?

What was the first big thing you bought?

Has it changed your life as you expected?
Would you do anything differently (what you’ve spent, who you told etc) if you could?

ineedaholidayandwine Tue 15-Jun-21 16:15:35

Were your friends and family respectful or did they start asking for/think you should help them out financially

What's the best thing you've bought?

PotteringAlong Tue 15-Jun-21 16:17:29

14 million! Wowsers grin

ShutUpaYourFace Tue 15-Jun-21 16:18:23

Was it lucky dip or did you pick your own numbers?
How long had you been playing? Are you a regular or was it a one off ticket purchase?
Are you a lucky person anyway?
Breathe! I need to win the lottery - any tips😂😂😂

ivykaty44 Tue 15-Jun-21 16:18:51

Did you give up paid work?

Do you do any type of volunteering or charity work?

NCuserer Tue 15-Jun-21 16:18:53

What was the first thing you bought?

I took my son out for a lovely dinner. This was before the I got the money though. I think the first thing I bought afterwards was a Mulberry bag which I had wanted for years. I have over 50 now!

Lucky you envy

Redwinestillfine Tue 15-Jun-21 16:18:57

Was the admin around it complicated ( banking limits, tax implications etc)?

Tiredmumno1 Tue 15-Jun-21 16:19:00

That's lovely smile

I really hope that winning changed your life, We all dream of winning the lottery, does it feel as good as what you'd dreamed of before winning or even better?
