2 Lovely Ladies

In the last couple of days I have enjoyed spending time with 2 lovely ladies.  Last night ‘Vegetable Grower Up The Road’ was in London and we met at Madison, a champagne and cocktail bar with an amazing view of St.Pauls !

We had a citrus Mojito which was wonderful.


When it became cold and windy we wandered over the river to Borough Market and in to Fish! for supper.  I had halibut with salsa verde, vegetables and chips which was delicious.

We had a lovely evening and it was so good to be able to go out to some of the wonderful places near where I work with a home friend.  If anyone else wants to meet me after work, I would be delighted  to see you 🙂 .

When I woke up this morning, I didn’t hear rain on the roof for the first time all week.  I was actually able to enjoy walking to work, past this very smartly painted building

down clink street.  Check out the dappled sunshine on the walls.  Lifts the spirit doesn’t it?


This was the view from my office at 7:30am this morning.  Yes, I was in very early as I had a lot to do.

I wanted to get an early start because JP was meeting me for lunch :-).  We met way back in 1990 when we worked together and we have been good friends ever since and it was lovely to see her.  Shame it wasn’t for longer but I could only take an hours break.

We went to Le Pain Quotidien, which I have had takeaways from before but never eaten inside and it is a lovely building with a calm and quiet but busy ambience – perfect for lunch.  I had a smoked chicken salad

which was delicious.

For supper I made a smoothie with some raw buckwheat groats which I had soaked all day


plus a banana, 1/4 tsp matcha and a drizzle of maple syrup.  The consistency was thick but the texture was a bit gritty which some people may not like.  I didn’t mind it.

Now I am thinking I would like a glass of wine and some cheese.  So glad it is the weekend.  Hope you have a good one.

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 :-)
