Playing cards at home

Life is sometimes too fast, too many distractions from laptops, tablets and smartphones, the time ‘drain’ that is social media and not enough time to stop and actually enjoy the moment.
I find I literally have to make an appointment with myself to achieve any downtime/time away from work.
So, arranging to play cards with good friends is a perfect way to slow life down. Sit in the kitchen, make coffee, something delicious to eat (obviously), play bridge and from time to time, down the cards to put the world to rights. It’s a great therapy – I can highly recommend it.
