Re: Does anyone else break zips and tangle up earphones?

Now again I get my Zip caught in the teeth. I dont have to worry about earphones as I dont listen to music when I out and about I prefer to kick my eyes on the road and look out for people trying to chat me up.

I las...

Re: Coin Collecting

I would think I class myself as a mini coin collect, mainly the 50p designs, and some coins from other countries (also some of the smaller notes, worthless)

Re: Eating Spaghetti

I tend to avoid anything messy

Even though my Dad is not dyspraxic if he eats spaghetti, shepards pie, curry he does not tend to bother with the knife much, just a fork.

Re: I wear out shoes really quickly?

I also tend to wear them out quite a lot, with how I walk. I sometimes blame the pavements and the gravel. I tend to go for cheaper pairs of trainers like no more than £15 per pair. shoes last me a lot longer as I only where them rarely like the captain night on the cruise and during the evenings.
