As you may know my son is a member of Bushido Martial Arts, I am on the fundraising team with the other parents. The lads on the under junior team have represented Ireland at National and International events for the last number of years. We are currently fundraising and are seeking companies to come on board and sponsor the team. Find out how to help at the following link

Well Christmas is well and truly upon us and midnight the 21st December is the final deadline for orders to be dispatched in time for Christmas.
To all of my followers and supporters I’d like to say Thank You for following my blog posts for the last year and I look forward to hearing from you in the New Year.  I’d like to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and a Prosprous New Year.

It’s been a great year for us in some ways and a very sad year in others, for nine months we attended a funeral a month.  We also lost our pet of seventeen years during the summer, so its been hard.

On a brighter note, we (at Pedreschi Electrical & Alarms Ltd, where I work alongside my husband Daniel)were announced the RECI contractor of the Year at a ceremony in the Burlington Hotel which was a great night.  To be awarded the winner in the Domestic Category for the Dublin Region was a great surprise, but then Daniel is really good at what he does.  We finalised our certification process with the EQA and completed our PSA licensing application, required to carry out works on intruder alarm systems.  We also became an approved installer for the MK Smarthomes range of audio/visual equipment.  And signed up to the SEI for the Approved Contractor which enables us to carry out grant work on heating controls.  We attended the Business Fair in Johnstown House, it was the first time that we attended an exhibition on behalf of the electrical business. We updated our website to include blog style posts and have included a contact us page, we are participating in “Social Media” you can find up on Twitter.  @PedreschiElect  We are members of the Kildare Business Network.

While here at Harmony Design Studio things have also been busy, I was featured on Ireland AM on TV3 as part of the “Recession Bussiness - Section”.  I even did some business on the day, which was great!  Having been a part time student at the NCAD, I took part in the end of year exhibition in June.  My stock is also for sale via the Gifts and Vouchers website and also on the AnPost Online Shopping website. I have been busy in the run up to Christmas and didn’t do as many craft fairs as I would normally do, the one that I did attend was at the RTE Sports & Social Club.  I have my head in the books again and for the foreseeable future, I am studying at the IT  Tallaght on the Energy & Environment course.


One of the high points for my son was meeting the boxer Bernard Dunne, who was attending a trade event at Donnelly’s Tools during the summer.  Bernard was such nice lad it was such a shame to see his defeat later in the year.  The other big thing for my son was his junior cert which he passed with flying colours.  Its just 12 months since had his own great achievement.  The photo below shows Alex Pedreschi and Roy Baker, it was taken in December 2008.

Having reflected on the last twelve months its now time to plan ahead for the next twelve months.  To each of you have a great Christmas and a very Peaceful New Year.
