The one with Hyde Park and headache yoga

I started the day with meeting a uni friend for breakfast. I passed this sign on the way and because I am obsessed with blogging I take photos of every random thing I see, but I only realised afterwards how appropriate it was πŸ™‚


We met at a little cafe in Hyde Park and had a beautiful conversation along with a beautiful brekkie. Β Hyde Park is is a gorgeous big park in central Sydney with huge trees and pretty flowers and a humongous beastie fountain:

I’ve been to Hyde Park quite a few times and lain around in the grass (and I really need to go running there!) but this was my first time going to this area of the park and it was awesome. Right outside the cafe was this chess board which I think is very cool, there is something about a big size chess game that is very exciting in a Harry Potter kind of way.


The cafe itself was lovely; you could sit inside or outside, there were heaps of breakfast options, and the coffee was delicious.


A close up on my incredible brekkie: granola with greek yoghurt and the most delectable pear I have eaten in my life. So so good.



Now I am off to the balcony for a headache busting (I hope) yoga session. I have had a headache all day (probably a combination of not quite enough sleep and trying to cram too much study into my brain which only has so much capacity πŸ˜‰ ), and I really want to get on top of it before I go to work. Waitressing with a headache = not very fun. I’m going to do the poses from the below article, put on some very relaxing music, and my savasana is going to include a cold cloth on the back of my neck (a girl I stayed in a hostel in Seattle once taught me that, and I am forever thankful to her, for some reason it really helps ease headache pain).Β image

What do you like to choose when you go out for breakfast? – I usually choose porridge, granola, or French toast. Regardless, it is always a sweet breakfast.

Can you play chess? – I can play but I have no strategy whatsoever and can be beaten by most children over the age of 5 πŸ™‚

    Hyde Park looks beautiful! I too prefer a sweet breakfast. Eggs and cheese are good, but I usually feel kind of sluggish after eating eggs and bacon and things like that. I really like Special K cereal!
    My chess skills are minimal, but I do like to play the kids, who are practically pros compared to me.
    Hope your headache clears up soon!


    • I was thinking that your kids could most definitely beat me when I wrote this! πŸ™‚ I TOTALLY agree with everything you said in this comment. I feel full on sluggish after eggs or something like that, and Special K is AMAZING! πŸ™‚
      Thanks, it got a lot better after multiple downward dogs!
