I really need to think of a more imaginative title for these updates!
It’s been 6 months since my last update, so I thought I’d do a quick one.
My trading has been in a holding pattern since my last update and I’m merely plodding along quite steadily with nothing exciting to report. I’m at the stage now where I’m as sure as I can be that I’m going to be green each month.
How much I might win is dependant on a few factors but my stakes (I use liability not fixed stakes) haven’t changed in the last six months. You can read my last post here if you haven’t already.
So all pretty same old same old on the trading side. The only thing that increases/decreases my P&L is how many days I trade and what the racing on offer is like when I do.
Workwise my travel related business is still doing poorly, though I have through December done some shifts helping at my local Covid vaccination centre.
My sister-in-law is a nurse, and she was doing the jabs one day and rang me to ask if I could go down to help as one of the administrators hadn’t turned up one morning.
Each patient needs to be checked in and their vaccination registered on the system when it’s done. This is so their medical records, and the NHS app reflect their vac status. So I went down and did that.
I enjoyed it as apart from shopping I had rarely been out the house for ages. It felt quite good to do something worthwhile for a change and they also paid me which was handy!
Since the I did that first one I’ve volunteered to do quite a few more and it has been enjoyable.
Some of the shifts I did were just mornings, and some were just afternoons and those obviously stopped me from trading. Even when I just do a morning I haven’t felt like trading when I get home so I’ve taken the day off from trading.
I’ve had some much higher paid jobs in the past but never one that feels so rewarding. 95% of the people I deal with are very grateful for what we’re doing.
My trading moving forward.
My plan is to just do more of the same until the Spring/Summer when my main travel business will (touch wood) pick up. At that point I may consider increasing my stakes.

Nice steady day. The secret of B4P in a nutshell. In amongst all the garbage find one decent safe trade, trade it and then switch off Bet Angel and get on with other things.
