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!!

Black & White Delight

Well here's me wondering why I seem to have such a strong passion for Black & White........??

Newcastle United celebrating their 
promotion back to The Premiership
Monday 5th April 2010

The answer then became crystal clear....I was born into it!  Absolutely thrilled that there will be premiership football back in Toon soon.

And just in case I was in need of any further convincing of my passion for a bit of Black & White, I came across these today on Purplearea

and these on Apartmenttherapy


  1. Mrs C, I'm rather partial to black and white too, hence our very baroque-ish study with swirly black and white wallpaper. I can't wait to see what you do with it in your new home. I am loving the inspiration pictures you post. This is going to be one stunning home. A-M xx

  2. You have a new follower.. I cannot wait to see what you do with your home! xo

  3. There is a reason why black and white are considered a classic combo...and you just proved it right here with all these fab inspiration images.

  4. Well done Newcastle! We following the football over here via EPL Highlights.. Your home is going to be amazing, glad you're going with your instincts..Rachaelxx

  5. Football is the life and soul of Newcastle upon Tyne which is my home town in the North East of England....forgot all about their colours til watching the news of their promotion on Monday...Suddenly it all seemed so right!!

    Thanks so much ladies for taking the time to drop by and leave comments....feeling very inspired now,

    Mrs C x


Don't be shy....it's great to receive a comment!
