The churning stomach sensation of nerves (Iíve been waiting for tomorrow for six weeks) was just pleasantly interrupted by a victorious 18 point jump up in my online chess rating; take that checkmate, mother! ...Weíre pleasant about it but yes, we gloat over our wins. I think I get on really well with my mum; possibly (yet not proudly) I think this is enhanced by the tension between my sister and her. Mum once tried to stab my sister (the flying knife missed) and my sister is gradually driving mum into an insane asylum. Itís all very two-sided and horrible.
