That's just grand!

There was something rather reassuring about last night’s TV viewing. I don’t mean the episode of the Waltons where John Boy graduated. No, it was later. Grand Designs is back on our screens and with it comes the passionate and informed presenter Kevin McCloud.

Mr M enthuses about homes and our grand designs for them.

He isn’t afraid to voice his opinion and he’s rarely wrong.

So what’s so reassuring about all that? It comes at the end of the credits – where we’re invited to contact the programme makers if ‘we’re planning our own Grand Design’ – yes, I slept well last night – reassured that there would be another series to look forward to!
