SOLUCIONES

- Fran, welcome to La Mansión del Inglés. You used to be a very heavy casino gambler. What did you used to play at the casino?

- Well, I wouldn't say I was a very heavy gambler. I used to love gambling, and I used to play roulette. French roulette and American roulette.

- I see, and how many different casinos did you used to go to in London?

- Well, I don't think there's many that I haven't been to in London. There was about three in the centre of London.

- Ah huh… and Fran, did you go anywhere else to gamble?

- Yes, all over. I went to West Cliff, which is in Essex, Bournemouth, which is in Sussex. But I've never really played roulette abroad.

- Fran, what did you enjoy about gambling? Wh…what was the attraction for you?

- Well, it gave you a sense of excitement. When they used to spin the wheel. It was adrenalin, really.

- Did you go alone?

- Sometimes. Sometimes I used to go with friends, and I used to take my mother and my sister. When I was sitting of an evening feeling very bored, I just used to go on my own then.

- And how much money could you lose in one evening, Fran?

- Ahh, that would be telling…depending on how much I had on me at the time. Well if I was to say £5 , you'd call me a liar, so I won't say.

- And what's the most you've ever won?

- If my husband's not listening, about £200 I would believe.

- Do you miss gambling now, Fran?

- No, not at all. I've settled myself in Spain, and believe it or not I used to go gambling in England about three or four times a week and now I just don't think of it. It just doesn't appeal to me anymore, and I just wonder how I used go all those years ago.

- So tell me, what do you do with your time now?

- Not a lot, actually. I do a bit of reading, a bit of housework, a bit of cooking, we go out quite a bit, we go out during the day shopping, and coffee, well…I’ve just settled myself, there's not a lot you can do really except look after the home.

- Well, thank you very much for joining us Fran, and good luck with the future.

- Thank you
