1.Pay off all debts and put a nice bit by to live off
2.Nice house, not too big wiv massive garage, and a couple of self contained flats, so the kids could have somewhere to stay when they get older and want to visit.(might buy them a flat or something each as well to get them on the property ladder, if I'm feeling generous and there's enough money left)
3. Brietling for his lordship
4. Rolex for his lordship
5. another Omega for his lordship, just in case they feel left out.
6. uber fast moility scooter for his lordship
7. two GIANT hide bones for the dogs.
8.Whatever car his lordship is lusting after at the mo.
9. 3d tv for his lordship, he's always wanted one, useless for me as my eyes work funny so I can't see 3d.
10. And finally for me...................um, er, let me see,,don't know, perhaps the box set of all seasons of Er, been watching the last season lately and just fancy seeing it from the start.

Of course, I'd have split my win straight away with my dearrly beloved so do you think 1.1 mill would buy all that.
