I do love this series, but I feel so sorry for Dick, poor sod, he does all the hard filthy graft,and Angel gaffs about with painting butterflies with unicorn breath or something
She'll drive him into an early grave

I love seeing it coming together. Its a beautiful building.
I agree with you black , she has him doing everything. My dh is hopeless compared to him!
Been an interesting series.

Omg this is one of my favourite programmes!
Me and my partner love it!
We are moving house in two weeks and its made us so excited as our new house is abit of a project, albeit about 1 hundredth the size of a chateau haha
They are both bonkers and i love them!

Her taste is amazing. I love them!

But by god - that is going to take them years and a hell of a lot of patience. I think I'd be pushing Dh in the lake by now.

The80sweregreat Sun 24-Sep-17 20:46:38

They really love each other dont they?
Poor trees though, they looked sad.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sun 24-Sep-17 21:18:22

Poor old bugger.

He's about to have a heart attack about the roof and Angela is spending more money.

I find her taste far too twee tbh.

The80sweregreat Sun 24-Sep-17 21:20:38

Angela doesnt care does she?
Live and let live is their moto.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sun 24-Sep-17 21:24:09

Remember the mural from end of last series?
And the lift?

The80sweregreat Sun 24-Sep-17 21:27:28

Yes, the lift only goes up a few floors.

SuffolkBumkin Sun 24-Sep-17 21:29:27

I cant believe that roofer! He's got some guts!

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sun 24-Sep-17 21:30:46

I know!
It wad almost as scary as the 150 grand fir s now roof.

The80sweregreat Sun 24-Sep-17 21:45:37

That roofer! Where does he get these people to do these jobs?

LaLaLamp Sun 24-Sep-17 21:57:58

the truck delivery man was lovely grin

The80sweregreat Sun 24-Sep-17 22:01:49

Angel wasnt happy about that truck!
More work for Dick to sort out.

TansyVioletta Sun 24-Sep-17 23:50:50

I like Angel. I'm amazed at her vision and ideas. I haven't had the impression that she isn't working hard too on the design and decorating and wedding arranging. Plus her dd's only just started morning school, so they've been doing childcare too.

The80sweregreat Mon 25-Sep-17 06:59:29

Tansy, yes, she does work very hard - the second series showed them doing the food and the weddings must be a huge amount of work for her - 2 small children to raise too, it must be full on, even with some paid help.
it was funny when she said to the little girl ' did you speak any French?' and she just said 'no' - typical kids, they never tell you what they did at school or nursery! Their zest for life is amazing though, they seem so at one with it all.

TansyVioletta Mon 25-Sep-17 08:35:38

I never get tired of the beautiful views of the chateau and i love seeing her creative ideas. I'm looking forward to seeing how the new van gets incorporated into weddings. Doubtless it'll look beautiful.
I reckon the pollarded trees will grow back more than she thinks.

The80sweregreat Mon 25-Sep-17 09:06:05

The views and the surrounding area is lovely - lucky children being multi lingual too!
The roof would stress me out though, but i suppose they have time to save up now they know it will last a few more years.

Don't miss this week


darksideofthemooncup Sun 01-Oct-17 19:40:38

I'm sure she is a perfectly lovely woman, but I find Angel deeply irritating

darksideofthemooncup Sun 01-Oct-17 19:45:45

I think it's the beret and wafty sleeves

bitchpleaase Sun 01-Oct-17 19:46:17

Love this show. I think they’re both fab.

The thought of buying that chateau, however beautiful it is, with all that work to do just makes my blood run cold.

Wingbing Sun 01-Oct-17 19:47:24

Angel is a friend of a friend. I understand she is very lovely and an excellent host.

I love often see pictures on my FB feed of my friend staying there, it looks so nice.

bitchpleaase Sun 01-Oct-17 19:48:22

YY to the posters upthread who said how much they love each other. DH would be under the floorboards if we had to take on a project like that.
