spare 20K - yes please

if I had a spare 20k yes a whole £20,000 I would like to give at least half to charity, but I know H would completely freak out cus he would want to spend it on a car. His dream car is a Nissan z370 something to do with skylines ??? think fast and furious think rubbish jap cars -only kidding and please don't be offended my comment its a personal joke between me and H.
 So I guess as we are moving house and he's paying .  the car he wants is worth 20k at the moment so I would let him have half so i'm down to 10k :(

We are moving house in 6 weeks (ish ) and we need a whole lot o new furniture. As I've said in a previous post all of our current furniture is kaput /old and tired

So new bed £1000 I would have a king size, don't get me wrong I love snuggerling up to H but we are both tall people and the bit extra space would be amazing.
new wardrobes £700 ikea -
bedside tables £200 ikea

Sofa - we would need a 2+3 so we can have guests and seat them. plus a sofa bed for the second lounge- so that's about £3000.

some funky bar stools for our kitchen £150

A new TV panansonic is the best make in my eyes ! £679

Then comes the holiday of a lifetime - which I'm hoping will cost about £4000 .I would love love love to go and do route 66 in the USA - driving through new mexico around this time of year so I could once again see the shooting stars that show this time of year. In new mexico the air is so crisp and so clear its perfect for star spotting and I have found memories of lying on the grass at ville phimote - a scout ranch in amaerica and watching the amazing site that it is. There is no light pollution at all just an amazing site


But this is dream money and I know in my heart I will never get to see the stars so clearly :( As for the furniture in our new home it will be a long time and a lot of saving before we can afford it.
