    I am a descendent of one of the last Kings of Scotland!

    My name is spelt differently to the most common jades 
  • Anch0r33Anch0r33 Posts: 1,201 Wise Owl
    @Durhamjaide I love your unique spelling! It is definitely a fun fact and a nice conversation starter!

    Hoe do you cope in the sun then can you not go in the sun.

    @Durhamjaide I only really have a problem in the summer, I get the rashes all over my skin if I'm not careful. Or if I go on holiday to a sunny country it spreads to my face.

    I usually just west long sleeved and trousers or stay in the shade as much as a can. But I mean the reaction goes down after a few says so it's not too bad, it just irritates the skin 🙂

    How do you manage it

    @Durhamjaide How do you mean 🙂

    What do you use when you have those rashes in the summer 
  • ZenZen Posts: 1,989 Extreme Poster
    @Durhamjaide there's a cream I can get which makes them go down but I only use that on holiday. It doesn't bother me much to be honest, if people ask what it is I just tell them, it only bothers me when it's on my face too but theres not much I can do except prevention really!

    1. I can do a back handspring on a rolling piece of gymnastics equipment.

    2. I sing in my sleep.

    3. I didn't say my first word until I was 4 years old. 

    4. I once did so badly in a physics test in year 7 that there was no grade available (the teacher had to get me to retake the test a few days later but a foundation level test paper rather than a higher level test paper.)

    My mum signed me up for Brownies when I was 7 but we never heard back. Thankfully I don't really want to do Rangers and I didn't want to do Guides.

    Wow so you have been part of the Girlguiding family for 13 years! That is awesome.

    My mum has relatives from South Africa so that is also a great fact.

    I was a rainbow and a brownie! I ended up doing cubs and scouts at the same time and decided to continue with scouting instead of going to guides. I ended up getting my chief scout gold award and went to kandersteg twice!

    That's crazy cool @ThatFelixGuy! What was he like in person? :smile:

    Fun fact about me...last year I swam with sharks! May sound crazy but they are one of my favourite animals and it was just the best experience! Nurse sharks so they are safe and gentle, amazing creatures :heart:

    I also have hypermobility syndrome, so I'm with ya there @Aidan with the double-jointed thumbs...just so happens that the double-jointedness applies to most of my joints haha! Elastigirl over here

    @coc0mac

    I met him when I was young, about 6. He was speaking infront of the school! I can't remember what about, but my parents keep telling me for weeks on end I would not shut up about birds! Haha

    I can type without looking at the keyboard. My spelling is accurate most of the time.
