I'm having a terrible time of it at the moment.
First up, my ingrowing toenail is back.
That's not good.
My foot hurts, but there is very little I can do because the nail is still too small to get a good hook into and yank out.
More exciting news to follow on that story.....
Next up, the month of August saw a rather stupid statement from your's truly when my friend Ste (remember Ste? he's the one who fell asleep with a candle on his head and cheated at the £10 challenge) offered to have another £10 bet with me.
The challenge this tie round involves betting £10 on any sporting event between the 1st of August until the 31st of December with the option to spend any and all winnings to see who can make the most money by the end of the year.
As of writing this post, Ste has not made any bets.... I, however, have been a very busy bee opting to spread my chances of making a profit by betting on horses, the cricket and the football....
I have pretty much lost all of my money.
As of today I have 40 pence left.
For anyone who is not familiar with English money, 40 pence can get you a funny look, thrown out or barred from any pub,bar, charity shop in the UK.
I am terrible at betting.
40 pence is pathetic.
There is a small chance I can come out this a hero.
I have some bets still to come today including the horses and kicking ball.... My hopes are not high though.
As the saying goes; If it wasn't for bad luck - I would have no luck at all.
Let this be a lesson to you all.... if you want to know how to make money from gambling, just do the opposite of me and you'll be a millionaire by Christmas.
More news on this (and my impending insolvency claim) to follow.
