    Ask for advice? Please, what shall I do with my money? Well they will ask you: what do you WANT to do with it... how can a stranger tell you what you want?

    Did your uncle have any strong feelings towards any charities? If so how about giving a percentage towards that and then spending the rest on something your family (and perhaps your aunt?) can enjoy? A family holiday perhaps, something along those lines.

    Its never nice recieving an inheritance, regardless of the amount, as anyone with even the smallest bit of humilty will feel "a person had to die for me to recieve this."

    I know id try and do something with at least some of it that he might have done himself (i.e. charity or doing something specific that would have appealed to him.)

    Alternatively, buy a car ;)

    Spend it. I am sure your Uncle would rather you enjoyed his money than kept it hidden away when it sounds like you are already very financially secure.

    Blow it on a nice car, a once in a lifetime holiday or taking up a new Sport.

    40 years old, apparently successful, relatively wealthy even... and you don't know what to do with 10k? What do you do for a living?

    Bank it until you find something you want.

    What's the point in squandering it on something stupid. Think about it, it's a lot of money to have as luxury. You can buy all the rounds down the pub, you can buy the most expensive thing on the menu etc etc (for like the next 10 years I mean)
