Ideal recipe for lotto win­ners

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

I HATE it when folk who win the lot­tery in­sist their new mil­lions won’t “change” them.

When the cou­ple who have net­ted enough to buy six homes treat them­selves to a car­a­van in Rhyl be­fore re­turn­ing to their 9-to-5 jobs.

Be­cause if I hit the jack­pot I’d jet straight off to a sun-kissed beach to plan my life of Ri­ley.

So hur­rah for the six NHS din­ner ladies from Neath, South Wales, who have just scooped £25mil­lion and quit their jobs.

Julie, 56, is head­ing for Ve­gas to be­come a high roller, Louise, 31, wants a dream wed­ding and a gold-plated tum­ble dryer and the other Julie, 50, has started spend, spend, spend­ing and vows “to live the dream”.

You go, girls! Ditch the over­alls, rip off your hair nets, and stick two fin­gers up to the jeal­ous doom-mon­gers who say sud­den wealth brings its prob­lems.

Be­cause after peel­ing spuds, boil­ing cab­bage and scrap­ing plates in a steamy NHS kitchen for £9 an hour I sus­pect you’re per­fectly ca­pa­ble of cop­ing with the “pres­sure” of £4.2mil­lion.

And I wish you dou­ble help­ings of hap­pi­ness. KIDS today are too busy play­ing com­puter games to learn nurs­ery rhymes, Of­sted warns. But young­sters who mem­o­rise Wee Wil­lie Winkieare bet­ter pre­pared for school.And hope­fully for tip­ping off cops about weird old men wear­ing night­ies run­ning through town.
