When we lived in Ireland in the ’90’s I used to watch Dick Strawbridge regularly on the TV. He was a builder and carpenter and restorer and general all-rounder.

Times changed and he remarried a girl called Angela. They bought a chateau in France – which is beyond stunning – and allowed a TV crew in to film (and pay for?) the restoration.

Angela is now Angel but that matters not. Dick is now beyond a Dick-of-ALL-trades and they and their young children have a stunning home.

Jealous? Me?

OK. Slightly :o)
