brush my teeth: About 7 or 8 I think but I've always had problems with doing this properly
riding a bike: about 10 I think. I used to pedal backwards and found it really hard to learn to pedal forwards.
tie my shoelaces: Can't remember. I'm not good at this. They are always coming undone.

Brushing my teeth - Don't Know
Ride a bike - That would require balance so just to simply put it, no. :P
Tying shoelaces - Nope, velcro is my friend! :D

Brushing my teeth - I don't know and I can't remember struggling with this.
Bike - never actually. Balance is not exactly a speciality. I gave up this one years ago. :mrgreen:
Shoe laces - about 9 or 10 I think. I had Velcro for ages and it took a while to get the hang of them. I also, as an earlier poster said wear skater trainers for ease of slipping on and off.

If I wear posh shoes, it s a bigger challenge. Although I've mastered the double knot. This was a very recent thing though. :oops:

haha so agree :p

Brush your teeth- last year, the dentist sent to me to a lesson with a dentist where she taught how to brush them propperely. It actually lasted an hour of me trying and failing. But now with a electric tooth brush I'm proud to say I can brush my teeth :D

Ride a bike? Never :) Unless you can find a bike for 13+ with stableizers XD

Do shoelaces up? haha agreed with remus- velcro is my friend. Still can't do lases.
