Quick Update 16/7/12

There has been a distinct lack of updates over the last couple of weeks so thought I would just give you an idea of what has been happening.

The long and short of it is that I just haven’t had much time to play Poker and any time that I have had to play Ive simply been too tired and just not bothered as I don’t play well and tilt easily when tired. So far this month Ive have not played 1K  hands yet which seems such a far cry from when I would easily do 70K in a month. Im now up to my 5th week of working 7 days a week which obviously means that the business has been busy which is great because we knew it would take time to establish ourselves but so far its probably going better than we expected. Unfortunately our van broke down a couple of days ago and it looks like we might need to purchase a new one so that’s going to take some time to sort out what is best for us whether we buy new or try and find a good used one. Nothing ever runs smoothly does it.

Due to there not been too much money available Ive managed to run up my credit card a bit, nothing too bad, but with poker going well Im looking to get it paid off with most of the money in my account so although this means no more Nl50 shot taking for a little while it does give me a clean slate to work with which is good because my Car contract runs out in January and I fancy getting something a bit more sporty and a bit quicker than the Polo 1.4 that I have at the moment. Ive got my heart set on a Vauxhall Corsa VXR, I was looking at a BMW M3 but it seems the running costs will be too much for the moment and I dont want to over stretch myself as it would be good to have a holiday next year as well. As it would happen the girlfriend hates the M3 but likes the Corsa, however I fancy it in White and shes not too keen on it but I guess if I have compromised on the car then she should compromise on the colour.

Well thats all for now, hopefully I will have more to report next time I update.

    Glad to hear the business is going well!

    When you say car contract, do you lease one? Something I’m thinking about as my heap is doing great at being a moneypit right now!

      Its one of those Lease contract things where you pay the monthly for 3 years then have to pay a lump sum at the end but when i got it it was the cheapest option for me. Its not a bad option if you want a decent car cheaper than it normally would be and plan on changing it every 3 or so years.
