Well New Year wasn't quite as expected. Here I was all geared up for a wonderful celebration and motivating myself that the start of 2010 will be greatness itself, when it turned out to be a bit of a damp squid really. I somehow developed a severe allergic reaction and spent New Years Eve dabbed in calamine lotion and drinking copious measures of lucozade, as the bottle of Moet sat in quiet celebration by itself in the fridge.
Now ordinarily something like this would throw me completely off kilter and all my so called plans would be just thrown in the air, but I'm determined that 2010 will be a great year and no matter what happens, then I'm going to enjoy it and more importantly complete some more tasks off my list.
It's now just under 2 years before I hit the magic number, so this year has got to count in clearing those tasks down. So spare a thought for me whilst you are watching Celebrity Big Brother (yes don't deny it, I know you will be watching it!) and I'm reading up on the rules of how to play chess - my first task of 2010!

Happy New Year and best wishes for 2010.

Good luck with the chess as well - I can't play the game anymore, it leaves me in a state in which I alternate between tension and sheer paralysis..

Damn! How did you know I was watching BB? I can't even believe I was watching it myself. The channel just happened to come on of it's own accord... honestly! ;)

Really sorry that your New Year plans didn't quite go to plan, but wish you every success with learning to play chess. I used to play many years ago but tend to stick with backgammon now. Not so complicated as!

Trousers - I've only got to the rook and the bishop section and already I'm confused - I think this going to be a long process!
Graham - I'm your stalker, I'm trained to know everything. PS I have backgammon to learn after I've mastered Chess, so may be asking for some tips!
