MOH and I played two games of scrabble last night, and surprisingly I won both.
It’s very difficult trying to get good scores when your tiles are either all vowels or all consonants, or worse, there is nothing to lay against to maximise your points.
Whilst MOH was collecting all the Is in the set, I was having a battle with the Es.
I haven’t read a decent book for months. We don’t have a newspaper though have been listening to the radio. The £15 spent on the mini hi-fi seems to have been well spent, and we have even listened to some CDs these past couple of evenings, having fished out our Pure Moods for Maggie to relax her as there have been fireworks going off.
Apart from my E feast, I was also getting the higher scoring tiles, Q, Z, X and J, though not all in the same hand, and I was able to put them down where they counted the most.
MOH was not having similar luck and there was no sign of any 7 letter words forthcoming.
However, our joint scores were well into the 500s, so I was quite pleased.
Hubby joined in for our third game, and still MOH was getting the evil Is.
Such a contrast to the previous night when he wiped the floor with both of us.
Luck of the draw I guess.
