I have two items which I would've taken along to the Repair Shop .... but was amazed to see two other people have taken EXACTLY the same items! (one was a candlestick which played a tune which I inherited from my grandparents, the other a push-along horse which was bought for me when I was 18 months old and is sitting in the loft in a sorry state).
My MIL has introduced my dad to this programme. She phones him the day after it’s on and they discuss it. I’m really grateful to her for this as with him living on his own it gives him an interest.
My mum and dad were always proud of the fact that they hardly watched any TV and now my dads on his own he still has that same attitude. I’m not saying that too much TV watching is a good thing but to me it would be better than silence even if you weren’t actually watching it.
I admit that I watch too much. I watch stuff on Netflix and Prime rather than normal TV. I’m not happy about it but if the alternative is yet more housework then TV wins. I do try to watch informative stuff though. My go to is anything sciencey. Not all the time. Sometimes I just watch trash. I’m currently working my way through Bones for the second time. It’s a good programme and I love the characters but the scientific inaccuracies are unbelievable at times.
Am I the only one watching too much TV because I can’t get out.
We are fans of Repair shop, such a soothing program, the people are lovely , the setting and everything else, totally addictive viewing. Hope they never change the format.
So nice of your MIL to do that Maggzz. It's also an inspiring program to make you try your own projects, now what about that push a long Jax, before it falls apart?
We've watched some great things on Amazon Prime too Magggzz, watched The green book couple of nights ago, really enjoyed that. We also watch a lot of UFO stuff on Amazon and recently joined a local UFO group
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
It would be lovely to see a picture of your horse Jax and your teddy Trisha. I am looking at my old pull along donkey (as I thought ) that I was also given about 18 months old. Mine is brown with blue/white eyes and it has red wheels. It only has one ear and has lost his tail. Do you think they could be related ?
I find the programme quite emotional and normally end up with a tear or two. Some of the stories connected are lovely.
We are hooked on The Alienists on Netflix at the minute. It's a bit similar to Sherlock Holmes in Victorian era.
Here is Teddy Bin, apparently he was made by the Salvation Army towards the end of the last war.. Poor old thing, I think he is too far gone even for the repair shop. Very little stuffing and everything is stitched up.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.

Thanks Jazzy. I will ask OH to put it on series link. Trisha, your Teddy Bin has had much love. I had a panda which I’m now going to have to find as it seems awful that he’s stuffed at the back of a cupboard.
Such a cherished looking Teddy Bin Trisha. I will try and put a picture of my donkey on which I have always for 56 years assumed it was. Then I have a feeling you are all going to tell me that it is a horse, but mine does have big ears which I associate with donkeys
