The bigger picture!

Posted on Posted in General Rambling

Well it looks like that was a decent call initially on James Arthur, i’ve taken half my stake out at 6.6 maybe i shouldn’t of been so tight on the stakes but im no pro in this area so not going to push the boundries…. yet….

Appologies for the lack of posts recently for a start, life seems to be so hectic for me at the moment although im fully aware its because i make it like that! I simply wouldn’t have it any other way for now… its all part of the bigger picture as i see it. I’ll be posting more often leading up to the Christmas fun so don’t think its one of those blogs that fizzled out!

The recent pre race markets have been a little sketchy at times although i get the feel they are starting to fill up more which is a good sign, on the whole i’ve found them this week to be pretty good with some nice movement in places!
Im looking forward to the big runners starting to make more and more appearances leading up to cheltenham, this year i might even treat myself to a bit of ante-post trading but that’ll be for another post.

This year has been a real whirlwind for me and had i carried on with the 2010 challenge of making 28k over the year i would of blown it out of the water! This really makes my head ache when thinking about the future! At the moment the steady daytime job is becoming more and more pressure, at times i just think its not so fair and i really don’t have to take this due to my alternate ventures although for now i’ll crack on (its really quite cold of a morning and i really have to convince myself each day!).

So looking at the bigger picture there’s alot laid out in front of me! I’ll be moving in the next month or so which is probably my least favorite task but im well overdue a decent upgrade! Christmas in between before some poor markets and probably cancellations in January/Febuary followed up by the big dipper! March, Cheltenham.
It’s probably really quite likely shortly after that i may leave the normal job, i could afford to quite easily on the betfair income at the moment although i don’t think its wise to with the winter coming – i have to keep saying that just to stop myself (its becoming boring already though).

Much like when reading a race though its important to look at the bigger picture in general rather than one particular runner or avenue of development, hopefully by June/July i’ll have a hefty deposit for a property along with a comfortable income leaving me in the position to invest in some property.
From what i’ve read house prices aren’t due to go up any time soon so fingers crossed its right!

Always interested in generating extra revenue streams or investing so if anyone’s got any advice feel free to comment!!
