Lots going on

I haven’t posted a lot recently because I haven’t actually been doing a lot of crafting. I’m super busy in my work life (I include being a school governor in that although obviously I don’t get paid for that work) and apart from my crochet snowflakes at the weekend I haven’t done any crochet or knitting apart from my daily sock knitting. And on a couple of occasions that has been three stitches just so I’ve done some! No, I fib, I knitted one row on my sister’s ribbed cardy and started sleeve two of my niece’s summer cardy (six rows) last night. The blanket of guilt has been completely abandoned again. I feel like I haven’t had a holiday!

Mollie seems to have spent more time at Mums than at our house!


Things have NOT been improved by discovering I’ve put on a stone in weight since before Christmas. I have to shift this as my dress for the wedding in 6.5 weeks fitted me a stone ago. I’m large anyway but I find diets very challenging as as soon as I diet I want to eat things I never normally eat. But needs must. I cannot not wear this dress. So, the next few weeks are going to see me eating lots of hearty soups and lentils…

  1. So depressing to have such a need for weight loss at this time of year!
    I hate dieting as I get so grumpy with inexplicable hunger which seems to arise even though I have just eaten. When I need to, I up my protein a lot (stops me from getting hungry) and cut back on the carbs, especially at night. I have a good amount of protein at every meal esp breakfast, lots of eggs and lean bacon. And lentils or chicken or fish/prawns in my veg soup.


  2. I’m not seeing your photos!!!!! have I pressed something I shouldn’t have ????? I’m also a veggie I find it’s not what I eat but the amount of exercise I do that helps in the trimness wars, if you can knit & crochet like a goddess, losing a few pounds should be a within your realms of capability ;-D
