Grateful for... A PH 4 HRH & CHOGM.

Over here in little ol' Perth we are currently entertaining The Queen,
if-you-don't-mind-thank-you-very-much.

This means that the Monday public holiday was moved from the recent school holidays to today.
A Friday. A day when both Hubby and I would ordinarily be at work.
Thank you very muchly, your Majesty.

Whilst our state has come to a standstill for the
Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting,
we have come to a standstill here at our place too.
For a different meeting.
Our very own Commoner Heads of Grottygroutville Meeting.

Today's meeting of all the influential parties in this household has been monumental and groundbreaking - literally.
Told you so.

We hereby declare the en suite of horrors no more and raise our jackhammers in salute to you, Queenie.

Happy CHOGM Demolition Day!

Not sure if I'm at all excited about this queen business, but if you got a holiday out of it then I guess that's a good thing!? x

Look forward to seeing the transformation of the ensuite...

Oh now THAT is exciting (the refurb not the Queen visiting). How lovely, can't wait to see the finished product. You will share the finished product, right?

I fittingly had lunch yesterday at The Queens. I'm witty without even trying! ha! Actually no I am not, my friend chose the venue. ;)

Now, I've worked out CHOGM, but what does A PH 4 HRH mean? Or is that a trick to get people to stay on your page longer trying to figure it out? It worked in my case. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
