Journeyman: Ugh, time to change this avatar. Procrastinating day today which'll mean a heavy stressful evening. Sept 29, 2014 13:03:40 GMT
peacefulwarrior: I'm a stepfather of a 19 yo son who was diagnosed with ADHD at age 11. He did successfully control some of the symptoms with ritalin but now refuses to take any medication, or to discuss his condition with anyone inside or outside of the family. Oct 1, 2014 20:39:47 GMT
JJ: Hiya xxxx so lovely to 'see' you xxxx Oct 8, 2014 22:22:43 GMT
contrarymary: hello :) such a shame i'm not going to actually See You at the conference :( hope all ok with you and yours? xx Oct 8, 2014 23:20:53 GMT
Journeyman: Seems a bit quiet today. Are you all rearranging your dry wipe boards? :P Oct 17, 2014 16:48:47 GMT
contrarymary: i did scribble on the wall on flipchart :) but been getting ready for conference which is tomorrow... am typing this while i eat supper ran out of time earlier :( xx Oct 17, 2014 22:36:43 GMT
Journeyman: Bit late picking this one up , but how did it go in the end? Well and good I hope Oct 19, 2014 11:29:10 GMT
contrarymary: Well i think, Thank you for asking . I am alive, breathing in and out, and managed to get to the follow up stuff this morning without too many mishaps tho a bit tired and grumpy and held together by caffeine and sugar :( Oct 19, 2014 15:23:48 GMT
contrarymary: which is never a good thing. but DONE! think this requires an entry in the achievements thread. it is astonishing and i will now take some days to process all the events. and have a week of resting and being nice to myself :) Oct 19, 2014 15:25:27 GMT
Journeyman: Well that's good . And noticing what you say about processing is interesting for me. Whenever my wife asks me how events went for me, I can't tell her straight away. It requires a few days data assimilation before I can report back... Oct 20, 2014 8:14:05 GMT
Journeyman: ...and everything gets loaded into other longer term memory banks. Bizarre, but I've always been like that. I was always useless at listening comprehension at primary school although I once got a certificate out of sympathy I suspect! Oct 20, 2014 8:16:15 GMT
grim: I have spent all day at college reading about and answering questions regarding health and safety,risk assessments,safeguarding policies,and reporting procedures. Oct 20, 2014 20:51:09 GMT
grim: At one point i felt it necessary to walk out to the car park and scream loudly. It helped...that is all Oct 20, 2014 20:52:37 GMT
contrarymary: screaming is brilliant :D Oct 20, 2014 23:11:48 GMT
Journeyman: Screaming and welding. Primal instincts :D Oct 21, 2014 10:40:08 GMT
supine: So what's the female stance on welding? Does it have the same impact or is there an equivalent? (Don't say knitting!!) :P Oct 22, 2014 10:05:53 GMT
juliet: Why shouldn't welding be a female thing? Oct 22, 2014 21:59:28 GMT
supine: no reason at all, which is why I asked! :) Oct 23, 2014 7:37:51 GMT
tink: I like welding! :) Oct 23, 2014 20:59:28 GMT
Journeyman: Here's a battalion of women welders, good on 'em (click here) Oct 24, 2014 10:12:35 GMT
