Much like when you attend a trendy new club and receive a “if your name’s down down you’re not coming in” greeting by the bouncer, having an active social life right now isn’t exactly the easiest thing. Right now in the UK (and no doubt in many other nations) we’ve been in a ‘lockdown’ for months on end. It’s now starting to ease thankfully, and hopefully in combination with a successful vaccination campaign will gradually lead us back to some sense of normality. But it’s been an awfully long road. It’s been a long time since I’ve attended our local casino and a carefree night of gambling. May apparently is indoor venues open again, so fingers crossed for that.
It’s not like I was making a beeline for the casino week in, week out anyway (I likely went about three times a year), and when I went, usually with family and friends’ we’d have a low and reasonably strict spending limit anyway. It was always the roulette that drew is in, but we didn’t pile on the chips, it was more a measured affair and about half of the time we came out on top. Not being able to have these little moments is a real drag, and now that there’s seemingly a light at the end of the tunnel let’s hope that’s actually what it is, rather than a train!
