Steve Thomson was kissed by luck in 2019: he won the lottery the beauty of 105 million pounds (more than 118 million euros) but his life now is not what he would have expected. “Money doesn’t buy happiness and I know it well,” said the millionaire who was a builder in his life before him.
Man spends most of his days at home, with his family or walking his dog. And now, 4 years after that immense joy, the former builder seems to be fed up with his new life. According to the Sun, the man misses his old job: he misses the construction site life and the satisfactions that he achieved, with sacrifices, by working.
“Although he feels lucky, Steve is not happy – his friends said -. The change in his life was too great: he loved his life as a bricklayer. Although he had just won that amount, as a good, thoughtful worker he completed all the tasks, before hanging up the trowel and cement ”.
Steve, as soon as he received the money, wanted to donate 50,000 pounds to his children’s school for some structural improvements, another 50,000 pounds to a hospital in the area and then 100,000 pounds to his beloved cricket club. Then over the years he has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to various charities.
Subsequently, he bought a villa worth 5 million euros for him, his wife Lanka and their three children. A real palace with six bedrooms, a swimming pool, a tennis court and a garden of more than 5 hectares. “Finally our children have a bedroom of their own,” he declared at the time with tears in his eyes for joy. But now the feeling of not really being happy.
