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!!

I'm easily distracted........

Today I should be concentrating hard on getting the heating spec for the house nailed down....well I have made a few phone calls and sent a few emails, however I'm very easily distracted and that not just by the kids!

I clicked into the lovely "not on the high street" and instantly fell in love with these beautiful things.....so much more interesting than checking out boiler specifications....ooooh am having a "blonde" day today more Bradshaw than Beeny!!

These gorgeous rose & lily porcelain flower mugs are from the Isabel Ballardie Interiors store and are by designer Lynn Lange. I'm contemplating a white, wood & stainless steel, theme to my kitchen and these would be perfect on the open shelving I'm planning!!

Also on my wish list from the Isabel Ballardie Store is this fab water decanter, so cool!
