Having broadband is good for your chess! Have just pushed my rating up to 1727, which is the best it has been in years! The beautiful Tasmanian wood chess board I bought myself helps too…it is Huon Pine and Myrtle, with a border of Blackwood and Black-heart Sassafras, and staunton pieces. Nerd? Yes, I admit it! Been sketching a bit recently too, which has been fun. Tomorrow off to Jen and Ray’s post-primary exam celebration. It should be fun – I can still remember the sense of getting your life back like it was yesterday, so I am sure they are similarly over-the-moon!
