    The 57-year-old British grandmother who won $US30.4 million in the EuroMillions lottery says she wants to spend her fortune like Julia Roberts in the movie Pretty Woman.

    "I just love the film Pretty Womanand have always wanted to go shopping like Julia Roberts did on Rodeo Drive," Marion Richardson, a retired postal worker and divorced mother of five, said.

    "Now thanks to my EuroMillions win my dream will come true."

    Ms Richardson says that the money would also help her to care for her ageing parents Marion and Norman, aged 78 and 80.

    She says she was knitting on Friday - the day the winning number was announced - when her right palm began to itch.

    I had always heard that an itchy LEFT palm meant one was going to get money, but who can argue with this situation? lol
