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!!

  1. Oh yes, the first and second images are fantastic! Rachaelxx

  2. Oh I love that last one! What a great idea, hope the house is coming on well, and you got your floor tiles all sorted.

    All things nice...

  3. thanks jo , i like the last one too ;0))

  4. Gorgeous pics!! I long for a beautiful waredrobe. If only I didn't have to share mine with my grubby rugby playing hubby - no chance of order - I want one of my own !! :)

  5. man, i'd love a walk in robe. the 4th image is my fave! jx

  6. Your home is going to be incredibly beautiful once all is said and done. Just the architectural details and fixtures have set an amazing base to what the finishing touches will bring. This sweet colorful post just lifted my spirits. While I've just made a major transformation to a while palette in our apartment, I still love lots of color. Your blog raised my hopes and inspiration for when we move into our own new home soon. Have a lovely day ~ xox Alexandra
