Diary of a Secret Millionaire: Part II

In the beginning

I woke up today really miserable. I had no sleep and was already dying to use the phone to call my wife Lynda. I didn’t want to leave the dump that I was staying in and go outside into this depressing area.

I looked at my money and it was going down rapidly. Then I blew £20 of it on the Lottery thinking that, if I did win, I would give it to the charities.

When I turned up at the first place they had arranged for me to visit – The Walton Lea Project (a charity that provides supported employment and training for adults with learning disabilities) – I could have just walked straight back out again!

Then I met Peter, one of the people in charge, and within five minutes I was digging and putting drains in with all the lads there. I have to say every single person I have met so far has been brilliant.

This is the first time I’ve done any manual work in over 30 years. My back aches and I’m knackered and I hate being told what to do.

Afterwards I came back to the hole that I’m living in. Got a bag of chips for dinner and made myself a cup of tea. I fell asleep on the sofa wondering if I had lost my mind in agreeing to do this.
