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 

meets another

So, until then...
x HH


  1. Million Dollar View HH,nothing beats it,it's luxury

    X A

  2. Champagne Toadstools?! Fantastic! And the house herself - it's amazing how much change is happening! Is the Widows Walk finished?

    1. Nearly T - it has a floor - was just waiting on final approval then it will have rails and I will be able to feel better about being up there. It is so high that even I feel as though I need a bit of security. Don't worry I will let you know the minute it is finished! x HH

    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline.

    This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing.

In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money.

    Diet food
    Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.
