( I'm assuming this is a lottery win )

1. Who do you call first?
Mum and Dad, if they aren't calling me as we have 5 numbers the same on our tickets ( what happens when you use family birthdays! :-)) )

2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself?
A 3 or 4-bed bungalow. ( Lots of crash space for Pratchett meets! )
Then a better car. ( The current one is fine but newer and bigger engine would be better )

3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else?
Decent publicity for a certain struggling author! :-)
( This is a serious wish and I certainly wouldn't expect anything in return as if people can give money to promote new artists why not authors? )

4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom?
Family, Orang foundation, cancer and kidney disease research ( lost friends to cancer and had kidney problems myself. )

5. Do you invest any? If so, how?
Yes, having got professional advice as I don't know enough about the various options.
