World's tiniest hands

Surprisingly, considering every other body part is hugely oversized (thighs, calves, hips, eyes, the lot!), my hands are absolutely teeny tiny! As a kid, I thought I just had really great skills in hand contortion which allowed me to slip my baby christening bracelet on and off. Turns out, I just had the world's smallest hands. It was only when someone commented on them at uni that I realised. Bizarrely, compliments on my hands have become somewhat of a frequent occurence. They're so small that I've taught 7 year olds with larger hands. My size H engagement ring is too small for most of the children's fingers (yes, we've tried!). There are lots of downsides: I've had to accept that I will never be able to play the guitar, I can't pour 2 litre bottles without using both hands, and I have to choose mobile phones based on their size, rather than their specifications. Despite this, there are loads of reasons why I absolutely love them!

Pringle ergonomics

You know when your tube of Pringles runs down, so you have to stick your hand in the tube and then it gets stuck, and scrapes the side, and you get salt in all the little scratches? Yeah, that. I don't! My hands can reach right down to the bottom of the tube without touching the sides.

Awesome gloves!

Those gloves in the form of a crocodile that you can open up to make a mouth and play at biting people's faces off, the ones that only come in children's sizes? You know the ones I mean. I can wear them! And they're a whole lot cheaper than adult gloves too! 

Festival wristband sneakiness

I'm the person you want to befriend if you haven't got a festival ticket. No matter how tightly they try and secure the wristband, I can always wriggle it off. It also means I can slip it off without cutting into it, which makes me happy (and I can put it back on for the festival 10 years later and pretend it's never come off...)

My small hands make me happy. I like them a lot!

  1. Loved this haha! I have tiny hands too, my little finger is the same size as a mini chocolate finger and the tiniest bit bigger than my 5 year old sisters. Reaching the bottom of the Pringles is defo a huge plus point. xx

  2. I can join you with this! The festival band one is the best - I can't wear them for work but it's nice to have them there uncut to slide on and off!

  4. I love this, I'm the same! I have the tiniest wrists too and can never find bracelets or watches that fit, they just slide right off me. Really annoying! x

    1. Same happens to me! It's so funny when the children put their bracelets on me and they won't stay on!

  5. I have little hands too - I actually managed to slide off one of those papery wristbands at a gig the other night with no effort at all. Made it look like a magic trick!

  6. Haha you should see my hands, so small and skinny! And I love them <3 Although it would be nice to find rings that would actually fit, like once in a while lol.

  9. My engagement ring is a J & I thought that was tiny! My hands & wrists are both really small too, buying watches that fit is a difficult job.

  10. This made me chuckle but I'm going to have to challenge you to a hand off!!
    My husband once said to me 'you're a good wife but what's with the hands?' Not sure if it was a backhanded (ha) compliment or a hidden insult...

  12. Small hands are the best! And you're right - one of the best things is at festivals :-) I've managed to get my Glastonbury wristband off (we have staff ones so they're slightly easier to wangle off anyway) and my wristband for the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Although my engagement ring was a size I and we did have to wait 3 weeks for it to arrive! :-) x

    1. Oh no! At least you know it fits you and isn't likely to fling off at any moment!
