In 2018 I wrote a column stating that soft play areas would be the source of the next plague. In mature reflection and recollection I now realise that I was wrong. However, like any opinionista, I am not going to retract and recant, but rather I am going to double down and tell you that I wasn't a million miles off, even if technically it is more than 9,000km from my local soft play area to the city of Wuhan. 

With their intoxicating mix of lukewarm food, insufficient seating, and general funk, indoor play areas are a purgatory for us breeders trapped between the hell of being stuck in the house with your kids on a wet Irish weekend, and the heaven of seeing them tire themselves out with minimum effort on our part.
