Re: Forgot how to boil potatoes

Unless I'm making mashed potatos I usually give them a quick wash /scrub before steaming or roasting them.

Re: Could dyspraxia be caused by stress?

I had a stressful upbringing, a lot of screaming and violence Now I’m an adult, obv I don’t behave that way myself, but I can’t help but wonder is that the reason why I have dyspraxia. I find it hard to belive I was born with it Just something I’ve been thinking about and wondered what others think...

Re: The Dreaded Team Building Exercise!

We had an icebreaker once where we were given cotton thread to tie a polo round our waist and dangling down. We then had to swing polo to get it into mouth. One lady refused point blank. Some team building things are pretty if not completely pointless and if you have competitive sporty people, it’s ...

Re: DAILY TELEGRAPH ARTICLE

Must I admit I wasn't overawed by title as to me, I felt it trivialises it a bit too much for my liking. We don't magically grow out of it I feel it is something we can learn to cope with but sometimes change and stress can negate our coping strategies. Equally avoidance for an adult is unfortunatel...

Re: ARE YOU UP FOR A CAMPAIGN?

Even as moderator I don't see myself above others here. I think we can all learn from each other and while I have powers to delete posts or members I do feel I have a responsibility to be respectful of others views. Not sure I really see point of Twitter and exercise a degree of paranoia with Faceac...

Re: Views of and experiences with the Dyspraxia Foundation

I do have individual membership of the DF and have had for around 5yrs now. I have regrettably yet to attend one of their AGMs or other events as not been one in my neck of the woods (Gloucester) at a time where I've been free. I would likely need to make a weekend of it and book well ahead for coor...

Re: Views of and experiences with the Dyspraxia Foundation

Hi Tom, Yes I don't mean to sound critical - for me 'thinking, speaking and moving in a clumsy and disorganised fashion' pretty much sums me up lol. I am glad to have the resource they offer, it is definitely valuable. I've had a look at the Hidden Assets guide you mentioned now too, which I did li...
