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!!

On a mission

Have decided it's time to be decisive!

Both me and Mr C are in agreement(at last)over these lights from Zenza, have had them on my definitely/maybe pile for well over a year!!  So now I've started the hunt to track down three of them to hang over our island in the kitchen. (similar idea to the image below...may hang mine at different heights though)

I've just fired off an email to the manufacturer in The Netherlands and am keeping my fingers crossed as I can't find a supplier for them here in Ireland.

I'm also mad about this water dispenser too
and the dinky little table top BBQ just to the right of the shot!

Loads more lovely lights and delights here, I could buy up their whole shop!!!


  1. I absolutely love the lights, I think they'd look great at different heights. Even different sizes..I'm sending you an email with the bathroom shutters slightly open so you can have a look..Rachaelxx

  2. I looove these lights, they are on my wish list aswell ♥

  3. LOOOVE these lights...and lucky me: I have a small one in my kitchen! Great link-tip! have a great start in the new week! geisslein.


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