The Repair Shop.

Does anyone else enjoy this programme?

I have always been keen on renovating stuff rather than throwing away, and this programme fills me with admiration for the experts' skills compared to my amateurish efforts. I have also picked up a few tips from watching it.

And it makes a pleasant change from the many antiques/cooking/ home-buying shows.

Just watching it now, been some good episodes recently.

Was talking to a customer today and he said it's great that our shop is prepared to have a go at repairing things rather than just ordering new parts in regardless, seems we're a dying breed?.

Make do and mend!.

I am waiting for someone to bring in their Grandad's old racing bike that has been neglected in the shed for 60 years.
