Lyme Time

Summer isn’t summer without a trip to Lyme Regis so Harvey and I came down on Friday evening.  It was lovely to wake up in my sister Lucy’s beautiful house and know I had a family day ahead of me.   

My eating has been dreadful lately.  Stress levels are high and instead of being sensible and nourishing myself with the plant foods I know will help sustain me, I have been eating too many cakes and biscuits plus cheese.  So I am not showing you the huge amount I ate today but instead, here are some photos of a day spent with family.

It was sunny which is a treat for me as it usually rains when I am in Lyme.  Broadchurch fans may recognise this view which is  taken from the car park at Felicity’s farm shop.   It was the location for one of the scenes.  Lucy and I had a pleasant potter round the shops, looking for a present for cousin Miranda’s birthday which we were helping her celebrate that evening  

 A little bit of time for relaxing.   
    Hedgehog bread !
I took Harvey and his cousin Harry over to Sidmouth for the afternoon where we had a large lunch with Grandpa Ian and Helen.  Will these two ever stop major doing building building works to their lovely home ?
I seriously doubt it!  After being fed until we felt how a goose being prepared for foie gras must feel, I enjoyed a walk around the garden with Helen while the boys vegetated.   


  Busy boys ?

Helen gardened and Ian and I spent hours chatting which was just perfect – a long overdue proper catch up.


 In the evening we headed down to the Cobb.   

No trip to Lyme is complete without a trip here.


A lovely evening was had by all in the Harbour Inn with my sister Lucy and cousin Miranda’s family and Uncle Clive and Aunty Hillary.  A perfect end to a lovely day. 

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 :-)

    Lovely Lyme Regis, ……
    concerning the cakes, I’m the same just now…. There is something about September which can triggers a new start, a bit like January.. Perhaps we can start again with renewed purpose then!! Xx
