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!!

News Flash.......

Just got email to say that my engineer will be inspecting the foundations on Tuesday 2nd June!!
Four years spent dreaming and waiting somewhat patiently (though Mr C will disagree no end) for this project to make the giant leap from 'planning' to 'construction', and it's all going to happen so quickly now....oooh am so excited!!  (and obviously need to get a life I can almost hear you mutter, surely it's not normal to get excited at the thought of laying foundations?)

Anyway, stay tuned folks, sure we all love Grand Designs....so we know the potential for disaster when laying foundations...don't we?  But please don't worry for me yet, still got the feeling it's all going to work out "grand" as they say here in Limerick. (and just in case, I'm drinking my coffee out of my "Keep Calm & Carry On" mug.......mmmm maybe should buy the t-shirt too?)
