Before everything else, I would just like to say that being a mother is one of the best feelings in the world- nothing could truly feel any better than going home from a hard day’s work of teaching angst-filled highschoolers and having my two kids greet me with smiles on their faces. However, it does get somewhat tiring, as when the munchkins aren’t smiling, they are either asking mummy to play dollies or telling mummy how someone pulled someone’s hair and such other normal happenings in the average household.
And so, it’s always important for a mum to keep up with her hobbies and interests and take a well-earned night off every once in a while!
So, How Do I Relax…?
Bingo is one of those hobbies that never really went away for me after all these years. It’s still rather popular among the masses, and it’s still as relaxing to me as when it was first invented by someone who knew what casual games actually meant. It does have a touch of thrill to it, but the most adrenaline you could get out of it was when you manage to get a set across and you’re waiting for the final call. Lady luck is still in attendance here, though probably reading a magazine and getting her nails done while the game is ongoing. It’s a great way to relax every once in a while, with a chance to win some extra money to boot.
However, bingo night can’t really be a regular activity when you need to go to specific playing areas at different schedules. It’s also not like poker where your strategy would be strongly dependent on your opponents- I rather doubt that staring a fellow bingo player down or acting aloof would do much other than make you look slightly constipated. This is why I had to give up my hobby for a while, as I had two kids to tend to and I honestly could not be bothered to go out every weekend for a game.

Looking online, however, I was overjoyed to find that I could continue my hobby without having to leave my home- or my room and cushy chair for that matter.

I love being a mum, but I need my down time. It just so happens that my down time is bingo, and I won’t apologize for it- it’s a perfectly mentally demanding game, needing strategy and luck. At the end of the day, it’s a great way to relax. Being able to play bingo from home just makes it so much more accessible, safer and has given me an easy way to catch a well-deserved breather.
