  • Sell & Buy 5265 BHP @ 8.60

    I haven’t heard if this deal went through at the market close but I assume it did. I basically sell and buy back at the same price thereby chrystalising some losses on BHP for the end of financial year. The options trades have been profitable so the entire position wasn’t too bad until this week. […]

  • Flu and Harry Potter

    I thought I was doing very well, having ducked 4 flu’s around the office this winter. Pride goeth before the fall. So I’m feeling miserable with a box of tissues. I’ve been reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (HP4) with my 9 year-old daughter, Gaby, then burning a little midnight oil reading Harry […]

Very exciting stuff. Hopefully we’ll buy another […]

One sign of maturity is recognising there is […]

The ADSL router was left behind. So who would benefit most from grabbing our accounts system. Or benefit from preventing me from […]
