Lottery-winning midwife is still delivering babies 10 years after becoming a millionaire

Lottery-winning midwife is still delivering babies 10 years after becoming a millionaire
The wind came at the most perfect time ever. It allowed me to reduce my working hours, giving me a much better work life balance. So I'm really lucky that I only work part time. So that's enabled me to spend much more time with my daughter doing fun mum things instead of, you know, working flat out for a really, really busy service. So yeah, we've had great holidays. But we've tried to keep our feet on the ground. Nothing working really helps me to do that and I love my job, so I don't want to give it up completely because when I worn I was only 35 and obviously that's far too young to retire. And I worked really hard to be a midwife. It's not easy. It's a really challenging degree. Plus doing shifts on top of all of that, and I love what I do, so certainly didn't want to give it up completely. But yeah, working part time allows me to carry on. Helping the families of our borough. And also providing my daughter with a role model who's got a good work ethic, that's been really important to me as well. She understands that, you know, if you want nice things in life, you've got to work hard. And I always felt that way. The universe gifted me something incredible. But you can't take it for granted. Not everybody's outlook. And she, she's currently working really hard to create a great career and future for herself too. Well, I don't walk around with a badge saying I'm a millionaire. Because that's not. No, no, definitely not. The vast majority of people don't know. I don't introduce myself. So by the way, I want £1,000,000 ten years ago. The vast majority of people haven't got a clue and that's the way I like it. I'm treated just like any other midwife by patients and staff, colleagues. I'd like to think they'd say that I've not changed. I don't think money should change people because, you know, just as suddenly as I want it, it could all be lost and nothing's guaranteed. So yeah, I think. People who are changed by life changing the amount of money like that for the worst and end up quite lonely. And I don't want that. Yeah, I've always been a massive fan of nice shoes, so I did treat myself to a pair of Jimmy Choos and a matching bag that that was pretty much the first thing I bought when I won. Yeah. I nearly cried when I was paying for them in Selfridges because I couldn't believe I was actually able to purchase this. I had the money to do it. It was a little bit overwhelming, but that collection is a little bit bigger now, so. I don't cry as much anymore.
