Colours

GREY

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.

RED

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

ORANGE

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.

WHITE

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.

MULTI-COLOURED

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 :-)
