Internet Scrabble Club

Yes yes I know, for many people the mere word Scrabble sends them off into a mire of remembered holidays in rainy caravans! But I love Scrabble, I love words, and when I say I love words I don’t mean that flippantly, I mean I truly love them, we use them constantly, everyday for everything – but rarely do we stop and think much about them,using just the ones we need to get by, rather than leaping aboard the Lexicon bus and finding new and exciting ones, but I digress, as anyone who knows me will tell you, my Scrabble credentials are that of a enthusiastic, if annoying when she wins, occasional player.
