That reminds me, I've not taken a picture of my mug either. I think I may do a series of shots of the mug's day-to-day existance. This is the thread here. I keep meaning to scroll past post #19 but my mouse wheel seems to stop responding.
Btw, congratulations and I hope the wedding and honeymoon are lovely.
Thanks. Yeah I keep wanting to join the poker, but for various reasons, atm the only time I get with my other half on weeknights is between about 8 and 10. This should change soon and as soon as it does I will be there. Ready to loose my cash, I really do suck at poker, but as long as it's fun!

Good Evening, how are you?
I've been here for a while but wanted to wait until a milestone before I formally said hello...
Last Christmas, I sat blearily eyed at the tail end of party when my friend simply said: "You like maths, don't you?" - this is a pretty big question after a lot of Vodka. "Well, it's handy you know: when you need to add things up..". She promised me an email to some kind of beginners guide to something or other at Money Saving Expert. Made her a couple-a-thousand or something, drunk now, got to go.
It was a good Christmas, we ate Turkey and it took until Boxing Day to deal with the presents. But then there's January - there's always January.
My email arrived and by January 15 post Christmas blues had set in, I had to read it - it would be rude not to.
Ok, so I like "put a bet on" and they like give me a "free" bet? Why? Why would they do that - surely my bet might lose. What do you mean Betfair?
Then I had to go and find my wife. I had to find her because she was in another room, it seemed that Matched Betting took some time to understand - it had become boring watching me stare at Coral, then at Betfair, then at MSE, then at Coral ...
"I'VE JUST MADE £7.00 AND THERE WAS NO RISK"
Ok, so as a wage it seemed to pay £1 / hour but still, it was a FREE £7.00. Worth repeating? Oh go on then, Betfred, Centrebet, Paddy Power - hmm. Suprising how many book makers there are - I bet if you did them all you could easily make £500.00.
Within a month I had £464.00 of free money. Free money.
So, I'd been right - I found a way to make £500.00 using bets that never lose (or always lose, but you know what I mean..)
March was interesting, Cheltenham - horses? Rule 4 - eh? £600.00 free money. Hang on, thats over £1,000 that I've made in three months.. Bizzare.
April and May brought me another £1,400 - this is now paying me more than my first job ("Our Price" record shop, if you're interested): every month.
MSE was still a useful resource, but it sprawled. And it was full of hate and misery. This is taking up a lot of time I should socialise a little more, but not with these animals. TGT on the other hand seems a much happier place. I like it here.
Casino's - US Books - June, July, more money - I'm now losing all sense of value, I'll work to match a £5 SNR in play freebie for £3.00 and I'll think nothing of giving myself £1,000 of Betfair liability on a horse race. I'll dutch $3000.00 for $100 profit. I make my first mistake but spot it in time and avoid losing most of my $ profits. Shit, this is serious money to me.
So then August. Present day.
My milestone moment - Total profit has just tipped £5,000.00.
Thanks to everyone that's helped to make this happen. This site is a constant source of useful information, banter and advice - it's hugely appreciated.
My name is Ben; and I'm a bonus abuser.
