This game has just finished my opponent lost a piece then resigned.
I played so badly in the opening i struggled into the middlegame in a cramped position.

My bishops were cramped and did not get into the game properly untill move 24.
I think 25.d5 was the move that changed the game.

I think you are too harsh on yourself. He was down a pawn after 14.... e3 without any compensation. Your position looks solid, I think the plan with g3, Bg2 was good, especially because Black castled queenside. Yeah, 21. ... Bb4 was a mistake, this move doesn't make sense even from positional point of view. So, you played well and I think you should try to play with opponent rated 150-200 higher.

His play is indifferent enough that you are kidding yourself if you think he just made a "mistake".

You need to play stronger opposition, players that have a better chance at calling you out on any little mistake. Of course, that would probably be like 1900+.
