    If I wanted to do that I would buy a sports car rather than drive a Ford Torneo Connect.
    You could try spelling lessons.

    I guess a lot of us will receive an inheritance of some size.

    In any case the dick waving on this forum normally concerns day rate, property portfolio, the car you drive and the lady standing next to it in the photo.

    At least there is a lot less dick waving about tax efficiency schemes these days.

    I got an inheritance 6 years ago. Each month I spent 1/12 of it buying shares over a wide range of sectors. It's grown in value quite nicely, despite Covid and Putin's war. Initially I had a subscription to fool.com, which I feel was value for money, as prior to that I was a newbie in the stock market.

    Depends if he can get more in savings interest than what he's paying on mortgage interest.

    Go on nice holiday(s).
    Overpayment of a mortgage may not reduce interest. What often happens is that overpayments are kept in a non-interest holding account. BTW, on most mortgages, the day of the month for payment also makes no difference to interest so therefore it is always best to pay on the last day of the month. Read the small print.

    Many moons ago (about 18 years or so) I ended up with a wodge of cash in the bank when selling one property and buying another because I sold for more than expected.

    I chucked it all in a savings account, drawing down what I needed to cover the bills each month, quit work and did a full time college course that helped me get into contracting. I couldn't afford to live an extravagant lifestyle but I had no debt (other than my mortgage) and all my bills were paid.

    I needed to get a job after about 9/10 months, which is what I expected, but the time off from work to focus on study did me the world of good.
