    This is why rice cookers are great. Non stick and cooked perfectly everytime. I also find washing the rice until the water runs clear before cooking helps combat the glugginess.

    Oh and applying moisturiser etc daily. I have spent a small fortune on very nice creams that allegedly prevent ageing but they just sit there whilst I go "stuff it I can't be bothered tonight" lol.

    I cannot make macarons or meringues properly. Can cook anything else from scratch but cannot make those two

    I also have limited patience with stupid people. I have to walk away.

    I am extremely positive for other people but myself I am pretty down on myself due to low self esteem.

    I can read music.
    I can't dance for the life of me.

    This is me! But what I lack in tone I make up for in volume!

It is a struggle to get them to do it normally and I already find myself with a low tolerance for inflicting nagging on them without nagging them about this as well. Not sure if that meets the fluffyness of the thread sorry!
    I'm a teacher and I'm shockingly pathetic at getting DD to do her set homework tasks!

    I have a thermomix now which cooks rice perfectly for me! No more gluggy rice for us!

    I am shockingly absentminded when I cook. I have destroyed so many kitchen appliances because cooking is how I relax. I burnt my rice cooker by accidentally settinf it down on a hot plate (we have the glass sort, I didnt realise I put it on the one I'd been using)

    I accidentally set fire to an esky the same way, I knocked the switch as I set it down and DH hadnt turned off the safety switch the night before. I have gotten better lately with the dangerous stuff but DH laughs as me all the time cos a day cooking in the kitchen ends in me covered in cuts and burns lol

    I can cook well enough, but cannot boil an egg to my liking! It's either too under or grey So frustrating.

    Also rubbish at cleaning, doesn't help that my kids are against me! They are the messiest kids ever!
