Bon Voyage

Off to France this evening. Well, actually, we are sailing at 4am tomorrow morning, but we've got a 6 hour drive to Dover first, then a two hour ferry crossing, then a 5 hour drive across France. I must be mad! Just me and the kids, visiting friends who have just moved there.

The children have had extra-curricular french lessons at school, so I'll get the chance to see if it was money well spent. We've got a shopping list that I'm going to try to get the kids to buy in the local shops. Well, its 20 years since I last studied French, and they did it only last week - they've got to be better at it than me, right?

Infrequent Play II

My previous comment about my success declining with lack of play has been proved true. Having played several SNG's in a row, I finished on a run of 3 third places and a second, making it a profitable night. I need to try and find time to keep playing, as success seems to breed success.

Well, I've registered, lets hope I get in. Posting has been a little infrequent here whilst my daughter has been ill. It'll be great to play in a big tournament like this.

Joys of Parenthood II

Back in March I wrote about the problems we were having with my daughter - irrational behaviour not sleeping etc.

Since then we never seem to be away from the hospital, with several appointments with the consultant paediatrician. We've had two EEGs and an MRI scan, and are none the wiser. On a positive note, the irrational behaviour has greatly reduced. We still have problems with getting her to sleep, but the situation is much better.

I'm taking the kids to France this week with a 10 hour drive, so I hope the improvement continues!

Infrequent Play

I've been playing Hold'em less frequently than usual. And my performance as suffered as a result. When I was playing every night, I was certain to get to the last 3 of sit'n'go's at least once a night, and usually two or three times. At the moment I've been playing once a week, and I keep making stupid calls. I think I'm too keen to be involved in the action. When I'm playing all the time I find it much easier to fold. I need to get back to playing more, and start rebuilding my bankroll.
