Welcome to my blog

We moved to Ireland with the notion of building our "dream" home in May 2007 after purchasing the site earlier on that year. Mr C is Irish and originally from Limerick but he remains in the UK during the week, his job is running www.cruise.co.uk and earning the bucks that will hopefully allow us to "live the dream."

It's taken us almost two years but ground will be broken on the site by the end of May 09!! A lot of blood, sweat & loads of tears (all mine!) have gone into this project already, we left a fabulous house behind in Newcastle...and now for my Kevin McLeod bit, "can the new build can live up to my expectations and the old house we left behind"? I'm not sure...keep watching my blog and you'll find out!!

The Man from the Bank of Ireland....he say yes!!!!

.....and about *&%%*$! time I may add.

I can now officially say that as of last Friday we have a mortgage, so we can start to build. A big thanks goes out to Susan Walsh of BDO Simpson Xavier who really did work hard for us, and of course to Mr C for working so hard and smart that the bank would even consider lending us the money in the first place!!
