My sister recommended it to me and I have three recorded but I haven't watched them yet. I plan to watch them after Christmas and I'm really looking forward to it!

I watched this series and loved it. It was made a few years ago, and then last year they made another series where Dick and Angel help other British couples buy chateaus and fix them up.

They look like a fun couple and the chateau behind them looks breathtaking. And I'd much rather watch other people renovate than do it myself!

i would love to do that kind of thing myself! but then i am a DIY girl so i think it would be so much fun - very long and hard work but i would enjoy it.

I watched it online on 'watchseries'.
Angel was so creative, she could make anything look good.
What a wonderful place to have a wedding.
I don't think there is anything that Dick couldn't fix.

exactly!!!! i would loooove a man like that because like angel - i always have some idea about what i want done around here but my husband is not handy at all! :rolleyes: :lol: he is afraid of doing something wrong and would rather call someone - i like to give it a good try or two before i throw in the towel!

I don't know how much we should discuss the series if they are others that are just watching it.
I loved that the previous family had left all that stuff in the attic, and Angel used it to decorate some of the rooms in their house.
I used to call my husband the 3/4 man - he would always start a project and get it 3/4 done and then stop - LOL!

And only in my dreams would I get to live in a house with a moat(sp?) around it.

well the subject line is clear - that way they know what is being discussed. so if they have not watched then that is something they need to deal with beforehand.

at least your husband would attempt to start!! mine is like - "we have to find someone to do it!" and depending on what it is i tell him "no i got this! i saw it on done on HGTV!" :giggle:
