Yes but we make our own rules here 8-) :banana: :evilb:

Feel feel free to post to threads even if they've been dormant for months or years. You may want to bear in mind that If the post your responding to was a specific question from a member written way back then it might not be seen by that person. However, that's not so say it won't be useful/helpful to others here.

yeah I don't think there is one thread that I have locked, unless on my route to deleting a spam message. so basically take your pick from 28/3/2017 to something like 1/2/2006, as long as something relevent to the topic we are very relaxed bunch of people :-) pretty sure all the topics are still open for discussions, then everything is take your pick.

you know your Dyspraxic when you check you got everything, then you go somewhere to find out you forgotten something, like mobile because you put it down to put your jacket on! Doe!! lol, this happened to me quite a few times over the years. and I know I got a set routine, of checking I got everything, which the answer is yes, as phoned parents to say on my way. and then go right I need to put my jacket on next, but instead of putting the phone in the jacket while it is in my hand, I always put it down on a unit. simular thing happened last night twice. had it a couple of times in my hand, and go where on earth is it!! lol

I just told my girlfriend "Never tell a dyspraxic what they can't do, for he shall go forth and prove you correct".

Meant tounge in cheek :-$

You friend really does not want to offer you a cup of tea because they know your going to knock or kick it over. I've knocked and kicked 1000's of drinks over in my life time no matter how many times I check where it is etc

Including in restaurants. haha oops.

When you are playing a game of pool with new friends (ones who haven't already learnt that there is a meter wide danger zone around you) and when focusing really hard to hit a ball with the pool cue- you whack a poor unsuspecting guy standing behind you, right in the balls instead! woops sorry! #-o

When your boyfriend (who's in the army) regularly says "I've got more bruises and injures from going out with you, than when I was in Afghanistan!" oh dear! the poor guy lol! :lol:

also-I've always preferred watching programs with subtitles on, and from this thread it looks like there might be a link with dyspraxia? That's really interesting!


Hi TeaCake

Apologies I don't think we or I have ever welcomed you here

Snap I once set fire to my napkin at a Spanish Restaurant. Luckily I beat out the flames with my dessert spoon before they could set off the smoke alarms!

As for Pool related Dyspraxia I was once told a Lady had flashed her chest at me to try to put me off a shot yet I was so intent on the shot (which I still missed) I never even noticed!

I fell off my bike this morning. I was in a hurry and was trying to carry a bulky parcel to the post office under my arm and at the same time mount a pavement one-handed. I have several grazes and a bruised rib to show for it. Should know better at 57 ;-)

Wow glad it’s not just me that needs a 6 foot perimeter when putting on a coat then you put it on and you realise the arm is inside out
