    the markets are currently experiencing a downturn, and i even have trust fund managers who look after that side for me. I'm thinking more an investment in my education and my family? My wife now has a job which earns a lot more than i do. Also today i sold two dvds on ebay, so maybe that is another way to make money?

    Any other tips?

    Well seeing as it took me 20 years to get the first lot of money, and then that has actually been depreciating until recently, and now it has taken me five years to do the degree, and it will probably be another five before i graduate, with my phd, i don't think this is an achievable target sadly. But maybe another five after that??

    Maybe, but you shouldn't look at it as set periods of time to achieve something, you want to get there as soon as you can right? So do whatever you can to work towards that goal, I'd set smaller future goals to work towards rather than focusing on the end result as that is a huge target

    Thanks. I think my most immediate goal is to pass this degree, hopefully with a 2.1, and then after that to support my wife to get her driving licence back. And so on.

    That seems like a good plan, good luck!
