Hi-de-hi compers!

No, I'm not Ruth Madoc :)

We thought we'd ask you, what would you do if you won £100?

Would you spend it on Christmas - presents or food - buy yourself a treat, pay bills or something else?
Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    I would top up my pre payment meter so I could actually have the heating on for once. May sound sad to some but that's what I would do. oh and I would buy some nice tea bags, I am fed up of 28p ones:D

    After a few days of meticulously hand stitching an apron I've made for my sister's birthday and having sore finger ends I'd have to say I'd rush out and buy a sewing machine with it, haha :D

    May you all have lots of luck, Emma xx

    What I would love to do with it is buy some Christmas presents for my family.

    But I have the Gas & Electric bill's due any day so it would go towards paying them.

    Lovely Thread Andrea
