Wild Life

I am certainly making good use of my weekly train ticket as I went up to London again on Saturday.  I took my little wild life to see some other wild life.

My Wildlife

First though we began the day with a healthy breakfast of egg with tomatoes, spinach, onions and mushrooms with coriander.  Yummy.Breakfast 1-3-14 Followed by a walk with the dogs in the still wet and muddy woods.In the woods 1-3-14 We went up to London to meet James’ sister Anne and family, to go to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the wonderful Natural History Museum.  Entry to the exhibition is £12 adult and £6 child and it is advisable to pre-book.  Entry to the museum though is free and there is so much to see it is worth visiting.  In the 3 hours we were there before going to the photography exhibition, we only saw a small amount of what is on offer.  Another bonus is the beautiful building it is in.

Outside NHM I felt ashamed that I hadn’t brought Harvey here before, especially when I observed that he was so interested in everything.  We will definitely be coming back.NHM entry We had a bite to eat in their excellent cafe.  I had a chicken club sandwich on brown with a latte. Not the lowest calorie choice but I was relieved I resisted the very tempting cakes.sandwich in LHM We then queued for the dinosaur exhibits.NHMTime went really quickly and it was a pleasure to be in this magnificent hall.
NHM ceiling The architecture here is stunning.In the NHM B and Anne The dinosaur exhibit is well worth visiting.  It is free but you have to queue because it is so popular.Dinosaurs It is well worth it though.T RexYou are not allowed to take photos in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition so we respected that.  It is excellent so go and see it if you can.  I would recommend going before the 5pm session though as we were a bit rushed at the end as the museum closes at 6pm.  I might be tempted to get first tickets of the day and hope it is not so crowded.

We headed off in to South Kensington and had a good curry at Shikara in Bute St.  Not diet friendly though despite the portions shown here as I also had a pint of Cobra, poppadoms with accompaniments, more of the main and quite a lot of probably the very best Peshwari Nan I have ever had.
Indian starter I did at least resist sweet things today and got a lot of walking in so not the worst day for eating recently by a long way.Indian 1-3-14 If you can, treat yourselves and go to see this fantastic exhibition.Wildlife Photographer of the Year

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 :-)
