    That’s some pretty lux ice cream! You could fly the world to find the best ice cream.

    I’ve been thinking about this today. I’m in a work syndicate so I would probably only get $10 million. I just can’t fathom $150 million.

    Pay of the debts (hahaha 0.5% of $150 million would still give me change), travel, help out family and friends, donate to charity and invest. I’d still go to work, but part time - I know some people with great business ideas and I might invest in their ideas.

    I’d buy a nice big house in a good school catchment, on the water would be nice. Pay off all my family’s mortgages and give them a bit extra. Donate some to charity.

    Pay of debts would be first on the list. Buy our dream home, new cars, long holiday, buy investment properties.

    Then I would take care of our family’s & set them up (new house, car & enough for them to do as they wish)some to close friends to do the same.
    Donate some to charities close to us also. Would still have a so much we wouldn’t know what to do with 🤣 it’s just so much money, I’d be willing to share it with plenty of ppl really

    My local b&r will do ok, and maybe Ben and Jerry's if b&r is closed.

    I would start with us: clear debt, buy a large block/s build a house to my own plan (honestly nothing over the top, but my own *ideal* layout), new cars, put some into investments for the kids.... not sure how though.

    My parents: clear their debt, build them a smaller house at the back of our block. Honestly dads miss 70s, mum's almost 70.... they're going to need assistance. They kind of already do...set them up with cars etc and let them live out the rest of their lives comfortably and without worry.

    Eldest brother: pay out his debt. Maybe give each of his kids/ grandkids a bit/invest for them until 25/30. Honestly before that I doubt they'd appreciate it.

    Older brother: I'd hire an investigator, find out where he is and then spend a whole $1 on a stamp with a short one page, 2 word letter. - eff you see Kay why oh ewe -... if he's lucky it might also contain 100gms of the finest grade glitter I could find.

    Younger brother: buy him a house, car..give him a head start.

    Do a holiday.... I've never been overseas so might do that?

    The rest... who knows...I'd make sure we had a cleaner/chef... lol

    I would consider a glitter bomb for MIL...
