My little bit of this big World

My shrinking world

These seed heads blew into our garden, 
I was not sure what they were, but I saw a challenge.
 I popped both seeds into a pot, which is in the greenhouse. 
I am still watching my weight, it's slowly going down, 
I hit my revised March target.
Back at the end of January my BMI was 29.5, so I am very pleased with the above results, to date I have lost a stone in weight, it's mainly gone from around my middle, the last time I was this weight was back in 2016. I am pulling out clothes from my wardrobe, which I have not worn in years, mainly trousers as the pounds piled on around my middle. 
I am also sorting my wardrobe, hubby made a walk in one here, it has loads of space which at the time I needed, but as I am not purchasing clothes, I have spaces, so I am now packing my fabric stash in the back shelves, which I love, I can see what I have and use some. 
Hubby has made a complete list of the food we have in both freezers and store cupboards, this will ensure we only order what we require and not bulk buy. We do have a bit more than normal as we are trying not to go out, our daughter collects shopping for us, and we are ensuring we don't send her out too often. 
Like the rest of the world, we did very little over the weekend, did our daily walk through the park, our route has been planned so there is always plenty of passing space, and we touch nothing, and wash our hand when we get home. The skin on my hands are very dry and sore, I do have hand creams. but they have not been helping. I found a pot of cream with extra vitamin E, which is working well. 
I thought I would give you a post without my cardigan photos, I will be soon finished, it's nice to have a simple design to make.  I have got the sewing out, and hope to get the baby cot covers and the bean bag made, I will cut both out 1st and then spend a day sewing together. 


  1. You're doing so well with your weight loss, it's great when you start to see a difference, makes it all worth while. What a great job your husband did with your wardrobe, such a great space. Eleanor's used to all the hand washing working in a lab. She found her hands got really sore when she first started her job so she now uses a lotion called Gloves in a Bottle and finds that really good. She also puts moisturising gloves on her hands overnight when they're really bad.

  2. Well done with your weight loss. That's amazing.

  3. Those seeds look like they may have come from a tree. It will be interesting to see what you end up with. Great news with the weight-loss - keep up doing the same things as they are obviously working :) xx

  4. Congratulations on the weight loss, it's not easy I know.
    I use the moisturising gloves Jo has already mentioned, have you tried Aqueous cream? It's very cheap and does a great job on hands feet and face, I usually slather it on at least once a week and let it soak in.
    It will be interesting to see what the seeds turn our to be :-)

  5. My hands are sore and cracked too with all the handwashing, need to get some more cream. Your hubby did a fantastic job with the walk in wardrobe. I'm going to make your quiche tomorrow, have some gammon and asparagus that need using up, will let you know how it turns out.

  6. How interesting those seeds are.
    Well done on the weight loss, fabulous!
