Money money money, ever too much?

Last night one ticket holder won the £101 million Euromillions jackpot.

I imagine we all fantasise about what we would spend the money on if we won it, but we do so knowing that realistically it's not something we're ever likely to have to think about

But is it too much? In truth it would be very difficult to spend that kind of money. .and it's not just your lifestyle that would change, that amount of money would create a level of expectation among your family and friends, and where would you draw the line?

Even in social terms, it would be impossible to remain in your current social circle, while at the same time being difficult to join the millionaire set.

So perhaps you could just give it away to charity, I would imagine you'd have no shortage of charities wanting to convince you that theirs is the cause most deserving of your cash.

On reflection I can only conclude that that amount of money could be completely divisive, and that while the dream might be one filled with big houses and never having to work again, the reality would be much different.

It wasn't my ticket...
