42 weeks to go at HH was beckoned in with christenings galore
First we are proud to launch the HH logo
I loved it the first minute I saw it - I love the way it is like a family emblem or crest (but with a modern twist) I love the purple (bearing in mind HH's link to women for over a century) and I love the circle to represent interwoven stories. It was described as heritage and tradition - I think that is true. Anyway, I love it Thanks AJ and the team at 121 Creative
The boys at HH saw it first - I am not sure they were as excited as me - but that is usual anyway, so I did not take offence.
This was not the only christening this week - we had the christening of this gorgeous bundle of goodness
Many of you might recall that this little gift from heaven Madeleine Mae arrived 9 months after my beautiful mother died. She was the first granddaughter born since Miss HH many years ago. My mum would have loved her beyond everything - except she loved Miss MM's 3 brothers a lot too
This was Miss HH in that same beautiful dress in August 1994
and so the legacy lives on - Miss HH becomes a godmother for the first time
and Maddie Mae immediately took to her like a kindred spirit
It was a beautiful day
There were other christenings this week too
It was the Qld Telstra Businesswoman Awards - and Rosemary Vilgan was christened the 2013 winner. She is a wonderful businesswoman - and lovely too - congrats Rosemary
I am so proud - and these young girls are proof of this year's Telstra manta that
And in christenings at HH, the new roof was in its first week and was much admired (especially by me!)
There has been much building, and cleaning
My office became alfresco again, to make way for the roofing sheets
I can't wait to see this fireplace revealed in my new office home
Here is the sootless ground now beneath the ballroom floor (it was shortlived) Temporary flooring soon appeared as there is much work here about to commence)
Goodbye beautiful front door - I will miss you
It's been a delicious week (and don't think I have not eaten a few of these devine donuts - thanks Flour and Chocolate!) A girl has to do what a girl has to do to keep up with the workmen!
I love christenings ... and new beginnings...
