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!!

Tomorrow there'll be tiles....

Bathroom tiles have arrived on site, and tomorrow "tiling out" commences.  I have a morning meeting down at the house with Johnny, who'll be in charge of ALL the tiling (so he'll be kept busy for a good while!) Not looking forward at all to the early start (and with kids in tow).

Can't wait for July

We'll be moved in

Only 12 or so weeks to go 


** keep reminding myself that this is good busy and good stress ** 


  1. Oh my darling Mrs C, you're bringing it all back..tiles, early morning, kids in tow...On the bright side, tiling signals the beginning of the end so it's very exciting! Rachaelxx

  2. Thanks for dropping by Moth Design and for the lovely comment. Your home is going to be SPECTACULAR!!! Believe me....I can tell. Love your blog... will be visiting often. xo Erica

  3. Totally agree with a room for everyone...the beginning of the end is upon you, very exciting stuff!

  4. **Thanks ladies for your kind and encouraging words **

    Things are so busy (manic if I'm really truthful), but I am enjoying it all really - my only worry is that mistakes will get made in the mad dash to the finishing line!!!
