Oh I Like To Be

Beside the seaside.  And I do like to be with dear friends and their lovely children.

What a Mums and kids weekend it has been.  Having survived a serious episode of juniper berry poisoning, I got sunburnt!  I ate too much but did at least manage to get a long walk in.

Several of us had juniper berry poisoning but we set off with vigour from Ramsgate towards Broadstairs.  It was high tide so we headed up to the top of the cliff tops.

Walking up to the cliff top It seemed like quite a long way there today but we finally arrived.Getting to BroadstairsWe were a party of 11 but we found a table ling enough at Morrelli’s.  After a sandwich for lunch we had an ice-cream and then set off back to Ramsgate.Ice creams at Morelli's The tide had gone out by the time we had eaten so we walked down to the beach.Heading down to the beach The cliff top walk is lovely but I much prefer being on the beach.On Viking BayWe have all known each other such a long time we have a very long catalogue of tales to tell and shared times to reminisce about.  It is fun to share the tales with our children too.  With such delightful company, and in the summer sunshine, we had a blustery but lovely walk back.Walking on the prom Walking back to Ramsgate footprints in sand What are Harvey and Maddi looking at?Looking for starfish Finding starfish Starfish!  Maddi spotted them and they spent a very happy time on a mission to seek and save the starfish.  Harvey, Maddi and starfish Harvey with starfish on his arm Harvey and Maddi with starfish Starfish in rockpool We were finally blown back to Ramsgate marina where we booked a table for dinner and headed off to our house to relax.Harvey on blue A much needed cup of tea and more chatting opportunities.afternoon tea and relaxing We had dinner in La Magnolia, an Italian restaurant with a pizza oven.La Magnolia pizza Eaten with a salad and then we had ice cream sundaes back at the house.La Magnolia salad

So an amazing weekend so far.  Too much to eat and not all healthy but a good walk and so much laughter, that must be burning up loads of calories 🙂

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. 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 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. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
