Garden Rescue - TV Programme

Is anyone watching Garden Rescue with Charlie Dimmock and the Rich brothers? It's good to see them ding gardens on a tight budget and a not so tight budget but I am not too impressed with the designs so far.

    Is Charlie pregnant or just eaten too much?

    I watched some reruns of ground force. All that decking!!! About as popular now  as an avocado shell-shaped corner bath with gold plated taps and matching toilet lid cosy

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Fashions come and fashions go and I haven't got any thinner in the last few years.  I'll watch anything with a plant pot in it, I enjoyed it image

    I won't lie, I watched one episode and wasn't impressed - much prefer Alan's program on weekly at night.

    Welcome back Charlie.  Don't mind Alan's programme either but it usually makes me cry and it's a school night so puffy eyes at work in the morning is not good.

    Love that he makes people happy though.

    See original post

     Charlie lost her mother and stepfather in the Asian tsunami and understandably life has been difficult.  She's done a lot of charity work and local tv programmes.  As with a lot of us, reaching middle age has resulted in a bit of 'middle age spread' - hardly likely to be pregnant at the age of 50.
