A Conversation With Oscar Wilde

I was up ridiculously early this morning and walking about in the bright early morning sunshine in Central London just after 6:30am today.

London at 6-40am The area opposite the station has lots of homeless people.  They are often seen in their sleeping bags on the steps of the many theatres in this part of London but I have never seen someone sleeping on the Oscar Wilde sculpture before!Oscar Wilde statue When I returned to the same place later today, I found a small and gorgeous boy there, who I took home with me.  He seems to be settling in very well and I think we shall keep him.

Harvey by Oscar Wilde

I did quite well with food today until my mishap.  Blueberry bircher muesli for breakfast from Pure.blueberry bircher Yummy mackerel salad for lunch from Pure.  But then a major blip by eating a cream slice (someone’s birthday cakes at work) and helping the boy finish chocolate on the way home.mackerel salad 7-7-14 Supper was tasty; jacket potato, chicken in a spicy BBQ sauce and lettuce (just picked from the garden) and tomatoes.  No snacking afterwards which is the first time in a while I haven’t done that so that is good.BBQ chicken and salad Another busy evening ensued.  I prepared some courgettes for a courgette, Feta and pine nut salad I am making for tomorrow evening’s party over the road, spent ages watering the garden (please rain overnight), put away an Ocado order, completed my Quarterly VAT return (thanks to hubby for doing it all really) plus standard evening chores.  Now it’s time for bed and apart from eating supper, I haven’t sat and relaxed yet!Courgettes and cheese grater

By the way, Harvey was on a trip to the theatre with his school so I collected him from the theatre rather than making him go all the way back to school before coming home.  I obviously didn’t really bring home a stranger.

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 :-)
