We’re definitely going to miss Oxford St and our favourite sushi place, and Hawthorne Garage (grocery) which we can walk to. It’s a lovely area to live in. We’ll definitely miss the lifestyle this place offers.”26 Dutton St, Hawthorne is being auctioned on-site by Ty Babbidge of Brisbane Real Estate — Indooroopilly at noon on Saturday August 19.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair The home is set well above the road.She said the 1920s cottage and its 405sq m site adapted well to their growing family after their second child arrived five years ago. Ms Mayberry said between the internal area, the front and rear outdoor rooms and the back yard, they’ve always found room to move. “At times we’ve set up the back terrace as pretty much a rumpus room out there where we’ve had tables full of Lego and everything, so it’s been flexible that way. There’s something about these houses that they seem to swallow up everything you throw at them,” she said. 26 Dutton Street, Hawthorne is cute two-bedroom cottage that adapted well to it’s growing family. Photo: realestate.com.auWhen Clare Mayberry and husband, Russell Grady, bought 26 Dutton St, Hawthorne in 2009, it had the right fundamentals but the wrong look.“It wasn’t occupied and it was painted in dark blue and yellow — it needed some love and attention,” Ms Mayberry said.The couple made a few thoughtful changes which resulted in the clean, open feel they wanted in their home.“The bones were already there — we didn’t have to do a lot. It was a bit of a diamond in the rough,” Ms Mayberry said. The light filled internal spaces felt bigger once the repaint was finished. A warm home with some classic features.The back lawn also became and extension of the living space, connecting well with the patio and internal area.“That yard space has been perfect for them. There’s enough room — there’s a trampoline there and a swing set and everything, so it’s been great,” Ms Mayberry said.“It’s just across the road from the park too.”last_img read more


Dustin Garneau’s first stint with Angels is a real homecoming

first_imgGarneau, 31, signed a minor league contract last November with the Angels, his fourth organization. He was batting .247 for Salt Lake with a .368 on-base percentage and .589 slugging percentage at the time of his call-up.A veteran of 696 minor league games, Garneau has appeared in 88 major league games with the Rockies, A’s and White Sox. He has a .194 batting average and five home runs in 252 MLB at-bats.“Good receiver,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said of Garneau. “He’s been swinging the bat well in Salt Lake, takes a lot of pride in working with the pitchers, which is important. He’ll fit right in.”Although Garneau’s next game in an Angels uniform will be his first since spring training, the organization has taken steps to ensure a seamless transition from the minors to the majors. All the Angels’ catchers were briefed on signs in spring training. Hitting coach Shawn Wooten is with Salt Lake now, Ausmus said.“I’ve been working with … all the hitting guys to change my swing for the better,” Garneau said. “I got real comfortable the last couple weeks with all the big changes I made. And with my receiving and catching stuff, it’s been all Eddy (Rodriguez) the catching coordinator with Jake Guzman too. It’s been fun working through some stuff.” ANAHEIM — Angels catcher Dustin Garneau grew up in San Pedro. He attended San Pedro High, then Cal State Fullerton, then traversed the minor-league landscape of the Colorado Rockies’ system for parts of nine seasons.Wednesday, he learned what it was like to drive from his house to his office.“I live two exits up the freeway,” he said.One day after he was pulled from a Triple-A game in Sacramento, Garneau was selected to the Angels’ 40-man roster and joined the major league club for Wednesday’s series finale against the Twins. He takes the place of backup catcher Kevan Smith, who was placed on the seven-day injured list. The seven-day IL is reserved for players diagnosed with a concussion, the unfortunate byproduct of a foul ball that caromed off Smith’s mask on Tuesday night. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img SIMMONS UPDATEShortstop Andrelton Simmons met with a foot and ankle specialist Wednesday, one day after he was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 3 sprain in his left ankle. He was not given a formal timetable for a return to game action.Simmons said the specialist was able to formally rule out the possibility of surgery. He’s expected to keep his foot in a protective boot for another 1-2 weeks, until his swelling subsides to the point where he’s able to walk without the boot. At that point, he can resume throwing, working out, and other baseball activities. Simmons will presumably need a minor league rehabilitation assignment after that.If the Grade 2 sprain that befell Simmons’ right ankle last year is any indication, the 29-year-old shortstop will exceed whatever expectations are set forth for this recovery.“Normal might have taken like three weeks,” he said of the last ankle sprain. “But I thought I was ready to play after like five, six days. It was still not ideal, but you know. I’m not expecting that quick a recovery, but I’m hoping for a miracle.”ROTATION PLANSAndrew Heaney is expected to throw a bullpen on Friday. The left-hander remains a candidate to start Sunday’s game against the Texas Rangers, an assignment that is still officially to be determined.Heaney hasn’t faced major league hitters since March, when he was beset by elbow inflammation. In a rehab start with Salt Lake on Monday, he struck out 10 batters in 4⅔ innings.“I threw like two-thirds of an inning in spring training so there wasn’t any progression,” Heaney said. “I had nothing to start from. The goal was to simulate what a spring training progression would be. … I’ve been feeling good physically and mechanically for weeks now.”The Angels’ starting rotation is full, and Ausmus said he’s considered moving to a six-man rotation. Griffin Canning and Tyler Skaggs are scheduled to start Friday and Saturday, respectively, against the Texas Rangers. Beyond that is anyone’s guess.“Let’s wait to see what happens with Heaney first before we start slotting other people,” Ausmus said. “We don’t wanna go to a seven-man rotation. One step at a time.”UP NEXTTwins (LHP Martin Perez, 6-1, 2.89 ERA) at Angels (RHP Matt Harvey, 2-3, 6.35 ERA), Thursday, 1:07 p.m., Fox Sports West, MLB (out of market only), 830 AMRangers (LHP Drew Smyly, 0-3, 6.51 ERA) at Angels (RHP Griffin Canning, 2-1, 3.80 ERA), Friday, 7:07 p.m., Fox Sports West, 830 AMlast_img read more
