I have had a lot of fun in the last 4 days which is good for the soul but not necessarily for the improved health or weight loss I am aiming for
Wednesday was amazing. I went to Wembley with 2 of my sisters and nephew Harry to see Coldplay. I met Lucy and Abi in Zizzi at Wembley for a pizza and rather a lot of wine first !! They do have a vegan cheese but unfortunately they also added goat’s cheese. Having waited 2 hours for it, I picked off the cheese bits but it was disappointing. Luckily the manager discounted our bill by all our main meals so it was quite good value in the end.Time to go in to the stadium. So exciting !!!!
We had unreserved or pitch seats and we chose to sit. The effects were amazing; at one point the entire stadium was filled with paper cut in to the shape of little birds. Coldplay played on the main stage, an extended stage in to the centre of the stadium and a small stage at the end . They are amazing to see live as they play all their hits and they also sang a tribute to David Bowie. We were given wristbands which lit up and changed colour; this was very effective when 80,000 people were wearing them and waving them around. And we had giant balloons to play with.
Thank you for coming they said. Well thank you for playing – it was magical and amazing and fantastic.
The critics agreed.
I had lovely supper at Jules’ on Thursday with some of the local lovelies and on Friday I went to Bedgebury, a forest near us, to see Tom Jones.
It did rain for a while but then the sun came out.
Tom was great; he is such a good singer and his band were excellent. Thank you Marion and Colin for the ticket and it was lovely to see you both, Clare and Lesley.
Last night we were at Bedgebury again to see the Kaiser Chiefs. We had a very enjoyable evening and the Kaiser Chiefs were also good.
Sally stayed with us last night and it was lovely to have some extra time with her. We had a good start to the day this morning; a smoothie made with apricots, strawberries and bananas.We had coffee at Hartley Dyke and then it was time to say good-bye. Lara and Harvey took their Dad out for lunch and I took mine.
Well, my Dad took me actually. We went to a local Chinese restaurant in Sutton and I had a delicious meal of vegetable spring rolls, seaweed, sizzling tofu in black bean sauce, rice with vegetables and broccoli cooked with garlic. I think 4 late nights took their toll. I forgot to take my Dad these lovely flowers I bought him which I was so annoyed with myself about. Sorry Daddy, but here is the promised photo of them xx
Tomorrow I fast and get back on my thyroid healing protocol.
It looks like you had a fantastic time Zoe. I love the flowers for your Dad too. Bob and I had Chinese for Father’s Day as well. We went out to his favourite Mom and Pop Fine Dining Chinese restaurant that we had been going to for 31 years, Father’s Day. 😀
