Great, thanks a lot.
I already have a GUI, I am writing my own for Ubuntu Linux and have a version for the Rpi. Let me know if you want to have a quick try of it. I include a pic of it running with Stockfish, I built Stockfish for the Rpi before you made it available and tested around that.
The GUI basics are there , you can play a game on UCI or XBoard engine . Of course I prefer UCI and Stockfish and built it around that !
Still lots to do but I should have a fully working first version in 6-12 month if people want to use it.

Thanks for your very much appreciated feedback . It is 99% done now, I am trying to get it out there and have sent emails to anyone I think might be interested ( e.g. Magpi magazine , etc ). I have to say not much luck at the moment, so your reply raised my spirits a bit ! Lot !
Please do try it , if you are not completely sick of PC, Chess and the whole damned lot !!! ( tell me about it ).
If you speak to anyone else who has not lost interest in Chess and Computing, please let them know about it too. I have put a lot of time into it ( I am sure they same is true of your project too ).
I hope you get the mojo back and dive back into chess, but enjoy the break ( and the new things - anything interesting ?) until you do.
Put your feet up, have a beer and I am sure you will get back to Chess & computing in the near future...
