When I won the first bet, I decided to take a second one and won some more with that. This may show a difference between an amateur (me) and pros (ESBC), but I think also luck had a big role in it. I've made some similar bets during December with less encouraging results and it seems December won't be a winning month.
Anyway, with less focus on betting I've had more time for other things, for example Christmas. This has been a welcome change and I think I must spend some time considering where I want to put my focus in the future. This applies to both work and free time. I see some room for improvement in both areas.
