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!!

Nearly..but not quite

Hoping tomorrow will be "THE" day we move.  Still so much to do....the snagging list is still pages long but we are getting there!!

The oven housing is still a work in progress but am really happy 
with how the kitchen is working out so far...love my walk-in pantry (there's masses of storage hidden around the corner!)

and is requiring some splashes of colour 
and some clutter

a labour of love putting up the
Ikea dandelion light

will be back with more pics soon....
