The lady I was in last night.

Marion, Sarah and I had a fab night out at The Grey Lady in Tunbridge Wells.  It’s a music lounge and on Wednesdays and Sundays Paul Dunton & Guests present local acts such as The Good Ship Band who were particularly good and have previously supported Keane.

We saw 4 great acts in this small and intimate venue and I highly recommend it.


London buses, the only colourful thing on London Bridge this grey and foggy morning.


The juice

and scrambled egg I had for breakfast

in Le Pain Quotidien.  Strange serving it with salad and a salad dressing at 7am!  But this is a lovely space to sit and enjoy a quiet breakfast before another busy day kicks off.

Supper was orange too – a mango, fig and apple smoothie I had for supper.  Oh, and the fruit bread I had from Starbucks mid morning – oops.


The pear, endive and walnut salad

and gnocchi with mushrooms I had for lunch at Osteria Del Mercato.  I had lunch out with a colleague who is leaving.  It is a fact of the contracting and consulting world in which I work that people move in and out of your work space quite frequently.  Some times that is a blessed relief but not in the case.  All the best with your next assignment Helen.

We had a table in the window and sat in a delightful arched section of the restaurant.  If you look up, you are sitting under the train track that carries trains from Cannon Street to London Bridge.


These wonderful umbrellas, hanging in a little courtyard in Borough Market.

I doubt they keep the rain off effectively but I suspect they provide respite from the sun in the summer.

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 :-)
