Adventures in Parramatta - The Hungry Baker

One thing we are spoiled for in Parramatta these days is cafes. Over the 4 or so years that I have worked in Parramatta, many have opened, providing a good choice of places to go for our lunch breaks should we feel the need to leave the office.
One such one, is the Hungry Baker. It has been opened a while but as it is not on the Westfields/Church Street Mall side of the CBD and therefore it was out of sight, out of mind for us.

Not any more.

Today we ventured across the station to the Deloitte's building (cnr Station Street East and Hassall Street), where the Hungry Baker is located on the ground floor. A very industrial looking space, with indoor and outdoor seating; and a large communal table in the centre.

Aussie Curves - Active Wear

It's been a few challenges since I've joined in with Dani and co on an Aussie Curves challenge. I'm trying to be less about always buying clothes and more about me this year. And this is why this challenge is perfect.

As you might recall from this post, I have started my journey to fitness, and I am pleased to say that I am still on that path. I am going to at least four Zumba classes a week and just started back at Body Combat. And next week I start Pilates..............I even went for a run on the treadmill the other week....

All of this exercise meant I did need to pick up some new active wear to get through the jam packed weeks without having to wash every single night. So here are a few of my current choices:

Passport to Fitness

A few months ago at work we were presented with an wellness opportunity - the fitness passport. This passport allowed us access to a number of gyms, leisure centres and pools in our local area, without having to join that gym.
I was looking for a sign to join a gym and get off my arse and this was my sign......

Adventures in Parramatta - Lachlan's, Old Government House

I love tea. And a I love high tea. But there are not a lot of high tea places within a quick trip from my place. Not that that is a bad thing - discovering new places is always pretty cool. But as you know I like to check out what's available in and around Parramatta and was pretty excited when my father asked whether I'd like to join the Parental Unit and my sister (out from the UK) to Lachlan's at Old Government House for High Tea to celebrate my mother's birthday.
