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!!

It's not all black & white

sneak peak at my daughter build-in's going in
She specifically requested blue (be her colour)
my three girls are all keen to differentiate their territory!

not a great pic of the Kartell Fly
it does look better in the flesh! 

waiting for the two drawers at the bottom

the door fronts will be white

....and the inspiration behind this room...
fell in love instantly with this pic found over at cococozy.com an age ago. Think I'll be pretty damn close to stealing the style when the room is finished (result!)


  1. How amazing is that! Lucky girl!! xx

  2. I can't wait to see the end result. This looks fantastic so far! Will you please send me photos?


  3. That is so fantastic! She is a lucky girl indeed. I imagine you are incredibly excited to finally be at this stage of building. I love the fly light, happen to have two myself- blue and orange. You'll love it!


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