It is always at this time of year that we tend to reflect on what’s happened throughout the last 12 months. It is also an important time to start thinking about those new years resolutions (whether we stick to them or not!) and the next 12 months. For me it is also that time of year to start winding down and thinking about spending the week with my family. Of course making a living from betting on horses there are only three days to take a break and then it’s all systems go on Boxing Day.
So nostalgia aside what has happened the last 12 months. The man at the races Service despite having a difficult December has managed to notch up 248.14 points. Or to put it another way £2481.40p to just £10 bets. Not life changing sums of money but a very good holiday for just five minutes work a day. Looking through the accounts we have managed to make a profit every single month which in total is actually 17 months in a row now but this year we’ve managed to pay ourselves a wage at the end of every month.
It is also that time of year for writing and sending Christmas cards. Of course the wife did our family and friends cards well over two weeks ago but I always manage to squeeze it in at the last-minute! It always makes me realise how many contacts and people I actually speak to throughout the year. I also use the time to become ruthless and start to sort the wheat from the chaff of who’s actually made me money and who has not. You also come to realise who appreciates the work you put in and I’m pleased to say I have managed to receive several bottles of single malt whiskey. Happy days!
So I have sorted my list of contacts with whom I will be working with over the next 12 months and I’m excited to say that I envisage another profitable 12 months. I appreciate that those who currently subscribe will have noticed that this month has been difficult but I’m determined to bring the month round and put it into profit again.
That’s it from me. I’d like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and I will be back next Thursday with a look at the fantastic Boxing Day racing and what I will be backing for the King George.
