Well to begin with the first thing that I would do is give a quarter of it to a very special Hospice. This hospice looked after my great nanny when she died and they didn’t want any money for it. I thank them greatly for that. The second thing that I would do is make sure my parents have the retirement home they wanted, pay off a mortgage or make sure they would get looked after when there old and grumpier!
I would buy a small house of my own, in the countryside, with a nice garden. The garden would be somewhere where I can get inspired for writing some more books. I would also make sure I was able to have transport to see my parents, lots of people don’t see their parents when they leave home – but I would – Even if my parents were in a retirement home.
I would also love to open my own business. Don’t laugh but I would love a cattery, as I have got two cats of my own who love me dearly. I love being around cats, especially nice cuddly, friendly ones like my cats Tobio and Jemima.
Finally I would go on a helicopter ride over New York, Las Vegas and then Hollywood. My mum and dad have been to New York and they say it is wonderful, I have never been.
