Post #112 ~ A Steam Locomotive

I love analogies! I use analogies, similes, and metaphors a lot, mostly in my written projects but occasionally when I talk as well.  Explaining situations or a certain topic is something I can find difficult at times and so if I can make a comparison it gets my thoughts across much clearer and easier. These … Read morePost #112 ~ A Steam Locomotive

Post #111 ~ Dyspraxic Characters

Dyspraxic Characters logo

Dyspraxic Characters (or really, the lack of Dyspraxic Characters): Dyspraxic characters; where are they? There are certainly many theories of characters that could have Dyspraxia (something I’ve gone into more depth later in this post). Dyslexia, Autism and other disabilities only get a few mentions here and there so it isn’t surprising that Dyspraxia gets completely … Read morePost #111 ~ Dyspraxic Characters

Post #110 ~ Warrior The Clumsy Tugboat

Warrior Tugs

A few posts back I talked about Tillie, the inspirational engine from my childhood. This has spurred me on to do a post about another character from my childhood – Warrior from the TV show Tugs. While he didn’t impact my determination nearly as much as that famous blue engine he was a character that I could … Read morePost #110 ~ Warrior The Clumsy Tugboat

Post #108 ~ The Positive Attributes

Positives of Dyspraxia

Improved ‘Positives of Dyspraxia’ Chart Dyspraxia does have its positive points. After all, it is one of the reasons why I started this blog in the first place. The positive points are overshadowed by the stigma that comes with the territory of a label. It is these positives and negatives that make us unique people … Read morePost #108 ~ The Positive Attributes

Post #105 ~ Dyspraxia vs. The Forces of Nature (Snow)

Snow and Ice

“The Beast from the East”  For once a topical post from me! I hail from the south-western part of the UK and as such we don’t get much snow. As expected, the northern parts of England and beyond get a fair amount of snow. When the southern part gets hit it’s mainly on the moors. … Read morePost #105 ~ Dyspraxia vs. The Forces of Nature (Snow)

Pokemon Go and Dyspraxia

Pokémon has been a franchise that’s been going for over 20 years, and with the launch of Pokémon Go it brought it back into the limelight, both for positive and negative reasons.

Post #097 ~ Remaining Positive

Positive

Life constantly changes – both positive and negative – new opportunities and threats can enter someone’s life in a blink of an eye and older opportunities and threats can disappear just as quick. 2017 for me has been a bit rough (one such problem was finding out my job role is being made redundant end … Read morePost #097 ~ Remaining Positive

Post #096 ~ How Music Helps Me

School Life: with No Music Interest I’ve talked about how there were people who helped me through low points. On the other hand there was something else that helped through the very dark and low points of my life. This was listening to certain music. Born in the ’90s and grew up with that generation … Read morePost #096 ~ How Music Helps Me
