Here there was an easy piece win in the opening and then for some reason I moved too fast and lost my queen. Can anyone advise me as this is where I seem to make most of my mistakes? This would be much appreciated.
You lost your Queen to a careless blunder. You just did not notice it was en prise.
Take more time over your moves and always do a quick blunder check before you submit your move. Check none of your pieces are en prise and look at all the checks your opponent has.
Sometimes it helps to do this if you flip the board.
