Thought it was about time we had a bit of a shot taken at HH with the fam. Here is the official shot of Miss HH, Mr HH and me at the Grand Green Lady - who is having a makeover as we speak so the green roof, sadly, is no more!
The crew from Studio Impressions did a beautiful job - just look at the texture of the tree! You can almost touch it. Personally, I love this shot the most - it is destined for my office
But life is not this glam on a day to day basis at Ol' HH - I have hardly had a chance to write so here is a whirlwind tour of the last week - 41 weeks to go! Gyrock has arrived, so these bare walls will not be bare for much longer.
Big decisions are being made - cornices were the flavour of the week - and they have to be in keeping with 1860s style! We have been told!
Week 42 ended up with 2 sittings of Friday drinks - one for the boys - where beers ruled
and then another for the girls - where champagne ruled - Note the beautiful S and her daughter S (who at her tender young age must have searched far and wide to find the only flowering bush in the entire HH estate!)
I thought Brisbane looked fabulous over the Riverfire weekend - and I was imagining what the view might be like next year when I can climb up through the Widow's walk to sneak a peak
Sparky HH is back and has allocated one of his boys to the HH House full time - how important does HH feel! And my new office got lots of attention - a bathroom is slowly but steadily emerging
Downstairs received lots of action too - demolition of walls and floors
but I am sad I am losing the bare brick walls which I have grown to love so much
They are rapidly disappearing behind limestone mortar
I know I know, it was bound to happen... but I am sad as I loved seeing the handmade bricks - I think I have been rather too inspired by this shot of the South Brisbane train station
Ceilings are looking up
and the dormer windows are getting a bit of a makeover
The beautiful wrought iron posts are being despatched for major restorative work - I will probably hardly recognise them when they return
Like I would hardly recognise Superstar Tea cosy should I buy one of these gorgeous bundles of tea cosy joy currently in Pillowtalk. Don't worry, I did not indulge her - she is well and truly indulged enough these days - can you believe she has her own fan club. The cheek!
