What a hornet’s nest I keep stirring up here in Aus.  The pub where I am staying that my little sister is the licensee of, has gaming machines … pokies they call them here in Australia.  I enjoy my $20 bet every day but OMG you would think I am committing heresy!  Gaming is highly frowned on despite the huge industry it is here and there are signs about out of control gambling plastered all over the gaming rooms but it certainly does not deter the punters.

Interesting that another industry closer to my life has punters too but back to the Australian punting and I feel that my small guilty pleasure of half an hour a day until my $20 has gone is being so looked down on – it fair takes all the pleasure out of it and I feel like going back online to do this in secret – how nuts is that!  I enjoy the small amount of money I sometimes allocate to my bingo and online slot machines – I don’t go out socially, I don’t eat out usually, I certainly do not smoke and as for drinking, I may go through a bottle of dry white once every couple of weeks so the little bingo and slot machines I do is a definite pleasure – here though its being made out to be a chuffing sin!

Ah well, you cannot have everything but the sun is certainly shining, the weather has changed and brought the sun instead of the clouds and it is lovely and warm and it fair makes the world feel a nicer place.  I so am loving the break away from the very cold UK.

Wishing all of you a very happy forthcoming New Years Eve and hoping that a happy, healthy and rewarding New Year is on the cards for all of you.
