20 Apr Counting down the Days – 90 to go
Well, already 10 days have whipped past since the countdown began
Just in case you missed the daily milestones – don’t fear – the blog is here to keep you up to date on all the latest Hanworth Happenings
Announcing 100 days to go and the Hanworth happening of the day was …tiles
But not just any tiles mind you – they had to be subway – just loving them
99 days to go and I confirmed that, alongside my love of the skip truck and bin, a concrete truck runs a pretty close second in making my blood pressure soar – and soar it did as the pavilion slab was laid – happy happy days
98 days to go and I took you inside the new wing
And we marvelled at the magnificence of the view some of the residents will get from there. Shame about the very ugly power pole! But you can’t have everything!
Day 97 was one of kindness as the beautiful Woods of the East Brisbane Pharmacy bundled up these beautiful goods and just sent them over (just because!) – what amazing community spirit that is
And makes them deserving of one of the coveted Hanworth House Award for community service – to the East Brisbane Pharmacy – follow them at eastbrisbanepharmacy on instagram – they have divine posts to match their divine products and divine spirit
Day 96 we showed off our new on site pinup boy Michael for the first time – he is our new front of House (Hanworth House) man!
Day 95 continued on the countdown pendulum as plumbing supplies took over one of my favourite rooms in the house – OK it was a slow news day!
but we also viewed the courtyard through the eyes of the orchid (purple no less!)
Day 94 and my office has started to look a bit special
and some of my office has been officially declared champagne corner
How beautiful are these little champagne toadstools!
The office celebration continued during Day 93 as our office bathroom finally begins to take shape (I cannot even articulate the relief we will have when our journey to the nearest bathroom is reduced from a good 4 minute walk to a few steps!)
Thanks tiler HH for taking our plea for a close bathroom seriously!
Day 92 and we turned our sights turn to landscaping – and just look at the difference Landscapers HH are already making
And Day 91 and 90 were ones of great excitement as the builder boys and I (with a little help from the beautiful house of Veuve Clicquot) declared a Hanworth mid week soiree
I told the builders that their shirts were (in a sense) clicquot orange! They believed me!
Even the biggies of the HH builder world got into the spirit
As did I – however, just to clarify, it does not take much for me to get into the Clicquot spirit – despite the construction surrounds, I felt quote at home!
And slowly as the day wore on, everyone on site focused on readying it for the party which was to come.
The Builder A team had a serious meeting
And the event planners had an equally serious meeting!
And you may well wonder where Superstar Tea Cosy has been of late…Well after sulking she did not have a thing to wear to coordinate with the Veuve flavour of the week, she finally relented and rolled out her apricot tea cosy
and proceeded to fraternise with all the new kids on site
Well we all knew she could not stay away for long – but I have lots to tell you about the fabulous evening next time – when one Le Grand Dame
So, until then…
