The Skinny Suitcase

Today, in the process of putting clean sheets on the beds, I decided it was cold enough to put the electric blanket on our bed. I know electric blankets aren't very 'green' I hear you say but, working night duty I don't have Mr. H's hot bod to keep me warm when I sleep during the day. So, I wriggle against the heat of my electric blanket.
We are renovating at present & everything has been moved around. So finding the electric blanket was proving to be a task. What I did find when I looked under my bed was my "Skinny Suitcase."
Like a lot of mums, I gained weight after having babies. I didn't have the heart to sell/donate any of my favourite clothes that I spent a lot of my single life working hard & saving for to buy. So they were carefully stored in my old suitcase & put away under the bed until one day when I might wear them again. Over the last 12 months I have been losing that weight.
"I forgot I had this."
"I thought I got rid of this" & "Why did I keep that?" & "I loved that" all the while puffing out my chest & patting myself on the back.
Some things returned to my cupboard, & some returned to the Skinny Suitcase to wait a wee while longer. And, as much fun as I had, I was disappointed when I began thinking, or realising how much my body has changed shape from my 20s to my 30s. But then I reasoned that it was the clothing companies changing the design & sizing of their wares & it was their fault & not my problem & I felt better again!


  1. Hi Jeanie, how exciting to have a blog (so tech savy!). Looking forward to hearing all your news about gardening, your renos and alot more. I'll be watching your spot!

  2. Hi Jeanie,

    Just wait until you get to your 40s too see what your body does! But remember that your body changed shape because you did something amazing. It would have been amazing (and rather freaky in my book) if your body hadn't change.

    Look forward to reading more.
