of "Escape to the Country" and previously "House Doctor" fame is now apparently also running meditation courses and to consider booking myself on to one??

I've always loved his manner and thought he is generally lovely and now I might get to meet him!! I am also interested in meditation and the two day course I am considering is in a lovely location so it's not only that blush.

The thought that I might have this course to look forward to has really cheered me up grin. Dh works away for a week at a time and only ever contacts me if he needs something doing but I don't care because I might get to spend two days with Alistair Appleton on second thoughts maybe I would be doing the course for the wrong reasons!

Go for it. I quite like Alistair Appleton too. He seems like a decent chap.

Your dh sounds like mine. Although, not away all week, he only calls me if he wants something. Highly irritating. That's probably one of the many reasons we are in counselling.

Me too. Where are his courses?

I nearly went on one last summer but sadly couldn't make it. He is a special person I think.

Hes seems so gentle. I love watching him too.

The course I want to go on is in the South Downs but they are in several locations.

His website (not his personal one but his meditation one) seems to be down this morning but this is the address.

I hope your counselling goes well longdistance.

you do know he is gay don't you? still love him even if he will never reciprocate sad

He is a very safe crush as a gay Buddhist grin

Yes I know he is gay, it's more about basking in his presence must confess to being a little disappointed when I found out smile.

He does seem a lovely bloke, doesn't he? And a bit of a polymath.

Go, and come back and reassure us all hat he is indeed as nice as he seems.

Used to love his banter with Anne Maurice. I appreciate I'm old enough to be his mother, but I wish they'd get him back on TV again.

adding to the chorus of how lovely he seems!

He is on TV in Escape to the Country nannyOgg. He's 45 this year.

wouldliketoknow2 Thu 22-Jan-15 09:06:40

(And I've just turned 46 so that would've been perfect grin).

Didn't know what polymath meant until today so thanks zebra. He does come across that way doesn't he.

Will definitely update but the course is in April (if I go) so a while to wait!
