Right I’m back.
3 days away from blogging and I’m already getting withdrawal symptoms.
I’ve been busy doing the things I need to do for the secret thing that I still can’t talk about yet and have made some progress.
Being unable to talk about the thing I am not allowed to talk about is becoming quite an arduous task but hopefully soon I will be able to reveal all.
When I say reveal all I don’t mean I will be appearing on embarrassing bodies or anything like that.
There are enough people that laugh at my naked form already… Mrs H for one!
But back to the task in hand.
Not done one of these for a while but I am giving you lot the chance to have an effect on the outcome of my life.
I am a terrible gambler. For two reasons.
Firstly; I lose more than I win.
Secondly; I only ever bet the minimum amount. (I’m not bloody stupid)
Exactly 3 years ago this month I put £30 into an online betting account and have won and lost and lost some more over the past. I have not put any more into that account and have bet my winnings away so that my balance stands at £6.94.
In retrospect, I don't think that is too bad. I have placed at least one bet each and every day on a range of things from kickingball and the 'Lympics and Golf and tennis and Snooker and the horse running. When I think of how far I have managed to make £30 stretch I don't think I have done too bad. But time's time and now the original stake is fast running out it's time to go out with a bang.
With this last bit of cash I am offering to allow you dear reader to dictate how that money is
I will bet on the horses at Cheltenham and I would like you to decide how I place the bets. (alright, maybe I am stoopid!-haha)
Cheltenham is due on Tuesday the 12th and I would like you to chose which category I place my bets on.
Please chose from:
Bet on all horses that have food/colour/boys name/girls name/ place in their name.
For example if you choose food I will place a bet on all horses that have a link to food in their name. the same goes for colour and boy/girl name etc.
Got it? good.
I have no idea how many horses there are in total, or how many bets I will be able to place.
I will choose the most popular answer in the comments boxes below.
Either way, I will print a copy of my bets on my next post for all to see and you can cheer on my horses as if they were your own.
If I win big I promise to share my winnings with you*.
If (and more than likely WHEN) I loose I will not blame you in any way shape or form.
It’s not often you get to bet with other people money (unless you are a banker) so don’t miss this
opportunity to make £££’s (for me).
You really can’t do any worse than I have.
Good luck and keep ‘em crossed!!!
(for those who read via Facebook and are unable to comment here, please leave your option on FB and i will copy and paste all answers on the next post before the races - thanks)
