Yarn Bombing

What a lovely sunny day we had today.  I was able to enjoy a lot of the sunshine by walking in it to St.Leonard’s and back, via the pier to see the yarn bombing.

I made a juice for breakfast but have managed to delete the photo!  You’ll have to trust me on that one.  Lucy came over and after a coffee, we walked, with Harvey, down to the pier.P1080456It was perfect walking weather; sunny and warm but not too hot.  I had heard about the yarn bombing on the pier and wanted to see it for myself.P1080458It was fantastic.  So many local groups, such as primary schools and the scouts, had made pictures, installations or models, such as this charming mermaid. They were then displayed all over the pier.P1080464People are so imaginative and creative.

P1080465This installation was massive.P1080466The beach was surprisingly deserted although it did fill up a lot by late afternoon when it was warm enough to lie outside.P1080467Just a few paddle boarders earlier on though as it was too calm for the windsurfers and surfers.P1080468I think this merry band of pirates was one of my favourite installations.P1080471We had lunch in the Love Cafe on Norman Road.  I had the falafels with salad, avocado and pitta bread.  The bread and falafels were lovely but the salad was drowned in a very strong vinaigrette which was a shame.  I will go to the Love Cafe again as I like it in there and the soy milk latte was excellent.  But I will ask for the dressing on the side next time.P1080472The reason for walking to St.Leonard’s was to go to the excellent Kino-teatr to see Moonlight.  Rebecca met us in there and had saved us good seats in the arm chairs and sofa near the front.  Moonlight is not an easy or pleasant watch and I am surprised it won the Oscar for Best Film.  I am glad I went but would not see it again.

Dinner was a very quick, easy and uninspiring salad with humous, sweetcorn and potatoes.  With a glass of wine plus I had some peanuts before hand.P1080474My eating was ok today and the walking very good; I walked over 14,000 steps and hardly sat down all day so a good active day.  With lovely friends and great scenery.  Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.

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 :-)
