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!!

A Cold Christmas

Temperatures way below freezing all day Christmas Day!


  1. Mrs C that feels cold just looking at it......I have to say I was to busy trying to work out if this is the New house from outside in. I think its turned out beautifully. I know you don't get to your blog much but I really do love seeing little snippets when you post them. I think your house ideas were all so inspiring. Have a great New Year.

  2. Oh my goodness, that's the house, yes? It's divine. How funny that your lovely self crossed my mind today and here's a post in my reader. I hope you had a wonderful holiday in your gorgeous new place!


  3. Oh I hope you had a wonderful christmas in your new home. Wishing you all the best for the new year and looking forward to seeing more updates on your home. It looks amazing

    All things nice...

  4. I just love your house:) The kitchen, mmmmmmm so nice. Have a nice weekend/ Best wishes Anne

  5. Hey - you're back!! I was wondering what had happened and whether you finished the house. Is it finished? Looks great so far.

  6. It looks very cold but very beautiful. Something we just don't see here..I've only just caught up on your last few posts. I can't believe the house is just about done! Your kitchen is incredible, to say the least. And the stairs and the fireplace..wow! You've designed it so well, it's beautiful. Rachaelxx
