What a completely gorgeous Sunday!

It was sunny and so very warm it was hard to believe it’s the end of September.  I spent a lot of time outside this morning, enjoying the late summer sunshine and flowers.dark red dahlias 2809 2 There are still so many flowers blooming away.dark red dahlia summer beds Late summer flowers and autumnal leaves.red creeper Apples in the trees, being enjoyed and plenty more to come.apples in tree Far fewer pears but still some there.pears Bright yellow pops of colour.yellow flowers 28-9 These sprung up and surprised me.purple flower I have never previously been a dahlia fan but they flower prolifically and for many months so I am being persuaded.  I like these ones best and also the pink and dark red ones.dahlia 2 2809 dahlia 1 2809 The cucumbers are doing well, the tomatoes less so and the aubergine is a big and healthy plant but absolutely zero fruit!cucumber, tomatoes and aubergine Carrots are ready for pulling.carots This trombetti is gigantic but I am keeping it going to see how big it will grow.huge trombetti These ones are more manageable and quite delicious.little trombetti Leeks in progress.leeks My little cherub  picked these for me this morning 🙂Harvey's flowers I picked these for us for breakfast.raspberries 28-9 I blended all the raspberries with 2 tbsp peanut butter and then added 4 frozen bananas.raspberries and peanut butter Served with blueberries, mango and a strawberry.  Harvey and I loved these.raspberry banana ice-cream 28-9 The giant sunflower has collapsed so I cut off its huge head for the birds to enjoy the seeds.  I lay a 12 inch ruler against it so you can see the size.sunflower with ruler Lots of seeds for the birds.sunflower close up huge sunflower face on This sunflower is huge and very heavy.huge sunflower head I took my little ones to the george in rye for lunch.  Thank you for the recommendation Jane, it was excellent.reception george in rye Cheers!L and H in george ryeWater and a beer to quench my thirst.drinks at george in rye Crab with a fennel and apple salad to start.crab apple fennel This was so fresh tasting it was fantastic.crab with apple and fennel salad Lara and Harvey both had squid and devoured it before I had time to take the photo.empty squid plate For main I had a very naughty cheeseburger with fries.cheeseburger at georgeIt was good.  Very very good.george cheeseburger This was even more naughty but totally delicious.  It’s the george sundae and it was a delightful concoction made from brownie, chocolate and blackcurrant ice-cream, cream and hazelnuts topped with cherries, laduree, chocolate, cherries and a crunchy sugar thingy.  Very good but oh, so naughty.george sudae

I should then have gone home and fasted for about a week but instead the bad behaviour continued as I tottered over the road to help celebrate Sarah’s birthday.  It had to be done!

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 :-)
