We've Almost Made It!!
Yep we've almost made it through the winter and so far the weather hasn't been too bad (well at least it hasn't been down here in the south-east of the UK). March might see a bit of a frost and the cancellation of a few meetings, but then hopefully once we reach April things should start improving as we see the start of the flat season hurrah!
I've trundled through February and to be honest my application has been somewhat lacking in terms of watching the replays, updating my horse notes, training, diet, etc. In fact I've been a right lazy fucker .... AGAIN!! If I don't get my act in gear for March then I'm destined to be a LAZY FAT bum for the rest of my life!
Around about this time last year I vowed that I would be getting up at the crack of dawn each day in order to get some work done (such as watching the replays) and also savouring the beauty of spring/summer mornings. So once again I'm going to set my alarm clock for just before sunrise each day, spring out of bed at the first beep, have a cuppa, sit in the garden (when the weather permits) and then hit the gym at the opening time of 07:00.
So if I set my alarm for 06:30 that should cover me until 08/03. Time waits for no man though and I'll have to be getting my ass out of bed at 06:00 by 22/03. The clocks change on 28/03 but I'll stick to 06:00.
So what about the trading I hear you say? Well February wasn't too bad although there was plenty of potential to do a lot better. From memory things start to pick-up from March onwards (in terms of profit) so as Caan mentions over in his blog it's time to win some summertime beer money!!
-£36.60. I didn't have a good day's trading today and I kept getting hit by those annoying losses of between £20 - £50 that soon add up!
£103.07. It's always to get back into 3 figure territory, especially after a pants day like yesterday. I actually started the day with three losses in a row but then traded pretty steadily after that and just edged past £100+.
-£36.59. It's obvious to see the effect of my current lazy attitude on my recent P&L.
I traded fuck all races, lost £30+ and ended the day by saying 'oh so what losing £30+ isn't too bad' while shoving another piece of chocolate cake in my mouth. What a fucking nob!
+£94.30. I only actually traded in 4 races today which must be some kind of record. I spent most of the doing making cups of tea, doing the housework, eating and lazing around!
+£20.02. Despite the fact that we had 3 RUK meetings today once again I made a poor effort and the only thing that is growing at the moment is my stomach! In fact is was feeling SO lazy that I hit the sack for a snooze after the 16:55 @ Bangor!
+£213.00. A steady, if un-eventful, day of trading that was greatly improved by the nice place market win in the 16:25 @ Ludlow.
+£118.62. I was plodding along today and then threw away the best part of £50 @ Dundalk but then managed to retrive it later on in the place market.
+£68.06. I started OK today but then my effort petered out and it ended up being a poor result for a Saturday ...
