    Purely being selfish...I would buy pants that didn't keep falling down. Very hard to hold them up whilst holding onto two toddlers' hands.

    Edit: They'd be some fine, fine pants.

    Buy a house (nothing extravagant, just enough for my needs) and travel.

    I would stop working full time but would work casually in the same job in between holidays. I'd be too bored otherwise.

    Don't have a ticket but if I was to come into some big money after i had paid thithe and finished my house. I would pay of my debts. Buy dd a flat so I wouldn't have to worry about her having to pay rent.
    The rest I would invest in some sort business.

    With $40mil I think id give $5mil to the children's hospital, give each of my and DH family $1 mil each so there is another $10, then just buy lots of property/holiday houses and businesses and I'd give a few hubbers $50,000 each ( so if you ever see me start a thread with "how would $50k change your life" you know I've won lots of money!!)

    I'd build the house we're looking at building but on a much bigger block (1000m2 instead of 500m2 - not very big anyway lol). I'd hire some kind of building supervisor, a builder, a stylist, a landscaper and every other expert so I could give them a list of what the house must have and then they can ring me when the house is done. I don't want the hassle of building and I have no style so would love to just be able to move into my dream home.

    AI'd pay off my families mortgages, though my parents and brother have already paid theirs off so I'd have to do something else special for them.

    I'd buy huge holiday houses in Melbourne and the Gold Coast as that's where my brother and sister live so my whole family could go visit at once.

    I'd pay off my BFFs mortgage so her husband wouldn't have to work every weekend. I don't think they're strapped for cash but I think not having a mortgage would let him see that it's good to spend time with your wife and child and not spend every day off doing overtime.

    I'd also pay off our other close friends mortgages and give the ones who haven't bought yet $400k per couple to put towards a home.

    I'd buy a house in Bondi where we can stay for the weekend. I might also try to convince our families to move to the Eastern suburbs or Northern Beaches of Sydney (we'd buy their houses) so we could be near the beach. I want to live near the beach but don't want to leave my family (and I guess hubby's family has to come too lol).

    Realistically though if I won lotto, I wouldn't move my whole family to the beach because I would want to keep it incredibly private. Someone close to me won a fairly large sum of money and only told the few people who they gave money to. They didn't want anyone asking for loans or begrudging them as they'd already done well in life (due to very hard work and a lot of sacrifices) so chose to keep it secret. I would also worry a lot about my daughter being kidnapped for ransom money.

    Like James Packers' silk and cashmere trackies that he sees fit to wrestle in the grass in? I hear they only cost $1300. You could buy one in every colour.

    Pay off my sisters house, buy my other sister somewhere to live, new cars for all of my siblings and their partners. Buy a house for me, a rental house which I would rent cheaply to someone who really needed it and allow them freedom to live in it like it was their own. Buy a holiday house and new cars for me and my partner. Buy him a factory to work out of and set up a tattoo studio that I could manage. Then whatever's left would put into investments and have a good set up for when were retired

    Id donate 5mil to various charities, inc cystic fibrosis.

    Id finish paying the house off, and buy dp the cattle station he loves.

    Id put 1mil in each of the kids accounts. Id give mum and brother enough for a house and car. Then put all remaining in a high interest account, and live off the interest
