Crazy Horses

It’s the weekend 🙂 .  So time for a cooked breakfast.  Bacon, poached egg and tomatoes.  Is it runny?

Oh yes, I remain the world champion egg poacher.  They were cooked to perfection.

This is Harvey’s “egg volcano”.

Off to Ramsgate for a days cleaning so I took a salad, based on this lovely Lollo Rosso lettuce.

With cucumber, celery, sugar snap peas, tomatoes, red pepper and sprouts.

Served with some oily fish my Step-Father brought me back from Spain.  Not sure what it is but am guessing mackerel.

I was not expecting it to be orange!  I drained the oil and mixed it in with the salad.  It all tasted lovely.

In Ramsgate I was pleased to see the Ramsgate Society has started its rennovation

of the charming promenade shelters with the ones outside our house.

I had a really fun evening.  The best part was someone special hopping off a train – she’s home for 5 weeks 🙂

I then went to see The Osmonds with Suzanne.  We have each been 3 times, twice together.  They were in Tunbridge Wells which was rather convenient.  I donned my blue velvet coat for the occasion which was a bonus as I have not managed to squeeze myself in to it for years.  It was very comfortable tonight.

They may be older, fatter, greyer and wrinklier, but they can still hold a tune and belt out a great song.  They even managed some dancing.  Each time we see them there are fewer of them.  Alan has retired due to his MS,  Wayne was due to come but had a stroke.  Donny and Marie were not on this tour so we had Merril, Jay and Jimmy.

We had a wonderful evening and I was transported back in time, to my teenage bedroom which was plastered in posters, pictures and clippings of Donny, my first love.

I had missed dinner so I started my Mothers Day pampering early with a tray loaded up with wine, bread and cheese.  Which I am enjoying as I sit in the lounge, catching up on tv I have recorded to watch with my gorgeous girl

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
