The Lifestyle Channel is evil!

The Lifestyle Channel is one of my favourite channels on Foxtel. Lots of great DIY shows, cooking shows, etc. Lots of fun.

Earlier in the evening they had Real Rooms (a DIY show where they renovate someone's room) and Ground Force (as above, but someone's garden, and it's a surprise), both BBC shows. Due to being out shopping I had missed them, however they are repeated at midnight/12:30 am, so I decided to watch them before going to bed.

Real Rooms was one I had seen before, where they renovated the Staff Room of a private girls school. Interesting.

Ground Force was annoying. In the show the team was doing up the back garden of Paul, as a surprise for Paul's wife. I'd guess Paul to be about 5'10", blocky build, obviously does a lot of physical labour for a job, not that smart, but a heart of gold and a great sense of humour, and a voice to die for!

I don't know what accent he had. I have no idea where they were (I do now, they were in Yate, Bristol, if that's any help to you), but I do know I could sit and listen to that voice for hours and hours. Deep, but not too deep, very lyrical and melodic, with the kind of trustworthiness you expect in the voice of a London Bobby.

The show was made in 1998, so a few years old now, but I have to say he was gorgeous, both physically and in personality.

Bargain Hunt
is the only show I watch on the Lifestyle Channell. (& sometimes the Antique Roadshow)

But Bargain Hunt is excellent. Dave Dickinson is a most stylish dresser as well.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
