Despite once hearing an economist colleague call Lotto "a tax on stupidity", everyone has Lotto dreams, and here's mine...

I'd have to start by brainstorming some ideas, so maybe a catch-up with the important and sensible people in my life would be a good idea. Of course finding a location that would help the creativity would be crucial ... maybe a week in Rarotonga.

I'd buy the Citizens' Advice Bureau in Christchurch a bus or campervan they could convert into a mobile office and use to provide on-site face-to-face services throughout the city. I'd set up a trust to pay for petrol, insurance, secure parking and the other costs involved.

I'd set up an account with a travel agent for authorised family and friends to use. There'd be no limit on spending within Australia and New Zealand, but anything international over a certain cost limit would need to be confirmed with me.

I'd buy my brother a house so he can live without flatmates - or kick them out whenever he wants.

And just in case peak oil won't be solved by technology (or the zombie apocalypse does happen), I'd find a nice fertile patch of land with it's own spring and robust fences.
