Hello everyone
I can't be the only one to notice that's it's a bit quiet and sad on here today.
Lots of people are struggling one way or another, myself included.

So let's big ourselves up. tchsmile

Tell me (and everyone else!) three things that you are exceptionally, or even just vaguely, good at.
I haven't given this much thought, honest, but I'll go first.
In fact, I can't even muster enough energy to do three straight away...
And in the spirit of 'good feedback' I'll add a rubbish one aswell

3. Drawing (but not painting)

Could do better: anything to do with direction or balance.

Hope you all have a good, peaceful evening x

What a lovely, positive post!
I'm pretty good at the following.

1. Cooking
2. Dancing
3. Saving money

(I'm not good at languages).

Not relevant to the thread Fanny but you get a lot of positive mentions today on the vaccination thread.

For 1 and 2 for you, I'd suggest cheering other people up and understanding the subtexts of films grin

1. Reading
2. Procrastinating (I always have a ‘list’ of things to do)
3. Making new friends

Blossoming Wed 02-Dec-20 16:52:38

1. Programming/software.
2. Jewellery making
3. Sewing and knitting

Rubbish at anything that requires good balance and co-ordination grin

Maybe it's quiet on here today Fanny because everyone has been out and about today! (Guilty.)
I hope some who are struggling will join in your thread.

I'm brilliant at:
1. Dancing
2. Drama
3. Languages

(Rubbish at Science and singing)

Ooh Elllianne, you just reminded me! I am a truly terrible singer (but am very good at remembering lyrics) grin

Grandma70s Wed 02-Dec-20 17:02:37

Singing (in choirs, not solo).
Poetry, understanding it and to a much lesser extent writing it.

I have always been rubbish when numbers are involved, as in maths.

GrannyGravy13 Wed 02-Dec-20 17:02:53

2 - eating

3 - sitting and watching the world go by

Just seen your post Pantglas I'm the same I will always take the wrong turn when faced with a choice, no sense of direction.
