I think we were all amazed by the story of a brother and sister finding a dusty old vase and then selling what they thought was a pretty redundant piece of porcelain for £43 million pounds!

I joked on Twitter that I had found an old fruit bowl from 1783 and was going to sell it for £45 million! Then Conservatory Girl asked me what I would do if I had that much money, would I still work?

It got me to thinking. I would still work. I’m the sort of person who just can’t leave my brain to rot and be unproductive. If I got my hands on that sort of money I would take the opportunity to build our business big enough to take the majority market share in Wakefield. That has always been one of my long term aims. If a sum of money that huge turned up, I know that it would be possible.

That is also the reason why I don’t think I could ever work for anyone else. I’ve got the opportunity here to make something big, a lot bigger, and that gives me all the motivation I need, money or no money!
