Things For Which to Be Thankful

Let us be thankful for small things, like family that love us, a keyboard that works and fantastic Christmas online bingo games.

Last week we moved offices and in the way that often happens, we lost adaptors and routers, found a stack of outdated bingo bonus fliers, realised we’d left things back in the old space and discovered that the new kitchen plays fast and loose with the word ‘hygiene’. But after we’d finished swearing at and accusing each other of taking the good pens we sat back in our brand-new space and realised that we have lots of things to be thankful for.


I co-opted a keyboard without a broken space bar (typing has been very interesting over the past few months), Jimmy found a computer tower that didn’t sound like it was taking off and Mooks made everyone laugh with his new left-handed mouse. DJ Dan secured a new bingo bonus for our players and we celebrated with mulled cider at the pub.


Looking at the busy streets of London it’s often easy to forget how disconnected we can be and how isolated we can become amongst the pressing crowds. It’s so important to have friends and family; to share things we love with people who love us. I know we often write glib pieces about the best online bingo sites, but truthfully one of the standout points of the game is the people you meet and the friends you make; in short, the connections are what make bingo fun.


When you’re being rudely battered on the tube and shoved around in a business context, it can be difficult to remember that there are genuinely lovely people in the world; people who don’t need a reason to be nice or to give to others. As strange as it sounds, playing online bingo games often restores my faith – simple, genuine queries about someone’s wellbeing amidst innocent chatter about Christmas presents and family, and you can often get into great discussions with people from halfway around the world, talking to them about their life and understanding how they have triumphed over adversity.


Christmas is just two weeks away, and I think it’s especially important at this time of year for us to do things we love and celebrate the community we live in. Enjoy!
