blush I hope that was a genuine enquiry Olivia!

Oh yes, quite so. Have caught up now
Am v worried for Lillian - Matt is SO onto her - she might end up alone at this point. sad

And also when Matt was talking to Bren in the office he was saying about Dodgy Des from the dog fights "the old gang's back together"
like they were his mates or something...

She went to ask Tom for more shifts milking because her horrible awful nasty parents are making her pay for her car herself. He said no, and by the way don't tell anyone but we're selling the cows so you won't have any shifts at all soon. She threw a strop. He offered her work on the burger van. She threw a bigger strop. Then called Spencer when in the Bull and told him in the loudest voice possible about the cow sale.

Meanwhile Tom continues to believe he's the first person in history to get dumped!

Nah Not much Olivia just 'entitled is my middle name' Pip being herself and Matt pretending he doesn't know about Paul to Lil!! Did you really want to know? Sorry if I've spoiled it for you blush

OliviaMMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 01-May-13 17:36:08

Ooh what I have I missed?!?

outtolunchagain Wed 01-May-13 15:04:05

And now having been asked by Tom not to breather a word about the cows she has told Spencer and possibly the rest of Ambridge she was talking so loud

TallGiraffe Wed 01-May-13 15:02:29

So Pip is now rude and bolshy to Tom as well as her parents, ooo she's annoying! And she uttered the phrase "this is a totally unsustainable situation" the other day - who talks like that hmm

Though because they're organic wouldn't they be less likely to get T.B.? I remember Joe talking about grass needing to have clover in it which gives immunity.

Could the Llama story be one of those government propaganda things they used to do?
Having Pat and Tony face even more disaster because their cows have TB spread by the badgers. Would that reduce public outrage at a badger cull?

Yes, they really need to formalise this whole thing about Pip's employment status. Either she is working on the farm, in which case she needs to know when and where and how many hours she is expected to do, or she is not working on the farm, in which case the precious little madam can go and live in student halls in Felpersham.

I'll listen this P.M. compos Good ideas about a bike or Bartleby grin My idea is she should get one of those buzz buzz scooters (all the kids have them round here in rural Fr,!!)

Don't worry about spoiling it for me I don't care any more (still listening though) grin

ComposHat Mon 29-Apr-13 19:08:18

ppeatfruit RThe llamas were mentioned tonight, it has legs thise llama story!

ComposHat Mon 29-Apr-13 17:14:51

Bartlby isn't doing much, couldn't she pay Joe to give her a lift in the trap?

ArtexMonkey Mon 29-Apr-13 16:50:25

When Roy and Hayley needed a place to live and couldn't afford anywhere in the village, they kept looking at inferior properties that were 'on the other side of felpersham' said in this really mournful tone that implied a long and arduous journey.

Didn't Pip used to be a bit of an Eco warrior? Couldn't she get a bike and one of those smug high vis vests that say 'the zero emissions option' on the back? That would be right up her boulevard.

Dahlialover Mon 29-Apr-13 16:44:21

I did enjoy it when she was walking and the Sausage boy could not give her a lift smile

It is a shame he could not tell her that her job was finished as well, but it will be something to look forward to at a later date.

ppeatfruit Mon 29-Apr-13 15:30:37

Well that's a thought Olivia grin I'm not so sure R4 and badgers (if you believe that they all carry TB grin) Can move about can't they? OOOH another problem for Pat and Tony, more emoting.

I agree about Pip BTW she's annoying but I don't know how far her yewni is from Brookfield. It'd be a difficult thing to combine it with helping on the farm anyway.

R4 Mon 29-Apr-13 15:12:01

Bridge Farm cows needing a TB check - how far away from the Llamas are they

I wondered that too. I even googled the village map blush. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem likely.

I am making no apologies for Pip, but David and Ruth do rather bring it on themselves. If she is supposed to be 'employed' on the farm then didn't they agree how many hours per week and do they not agree a shift at the beginning of the week? If David keeps suddenly dropping in a "can you help tomorrow" then that's never going to work.

Yes seeker i haven't missed it then they've forgotten about Lindy's llamas?

Now, I heard something about the Bridge Farm cows needing a TB check - how far away from the Llamas are they? Because all that dosh was tooo tooo convenient and Pat and Tony just ARENT that lucky...

lottieandmia Mon 29-Apr-13 14:29:14

Actually she reminds me of my ex-h's little sister, who at 20 insisted on having a university flat paid for by her parents, even though she actually already lived in the town with them and hardly used the flat hmm

lottieandmia Mon 29-Apr-13 14:24:44

She's a bit of a whiner but I did feel a bit sorry for her when the awful boyfriend buggered off leaving her heartbroken.

ArtexMonkey Mon 29-Apr-13 14:22:04

I really really want them to call her bluff, but they won't. Just say 'well, perhaps you should get a place closer to yewni with your friends then'

She would have rent to pay, food to buy, clothes to wash and a p/t job to find. She'd soon wise up, but the SWs won't take pity on us that easily.

Surely she hasn't got many days of taught time left at uni before the summer break anyway? Don't they break up in like a month?

heronsfly Mon 29-Apr-13 14:12:13

I cant believe that any sane parent would behave like Rooooth after the way they were spoken too, unfortunately I agree with Humphrey that she will insist they finance Pips new car (with a bigger engine.).
i think the script writers have conveniently forgotten that they are supposed to be hard up after having to raise money for the new equipment thingy that we all wanted Pip pushed into ,and Rickyard is still empty.

HumphreyCobbler Mon 29-Apr-13 13:20:16

Sunday's episode is worse! Ruth is going to give in...I think they should kick her out actually.

HumphreyCobbler Mon 29-Apr-13 13:05:51

Oh my GOD I am listening to Friday's episode. It is giving me the RAGE. I really shouldn't be listening to this.
