Why is Lillian allowing this to happen?

FFS Lil, he's just a bit on the side. If he pisses you off just bin him. Don't start sounding so downtrodden.

Oh yes, Lynda's sniffs are a great pleasure, Grimma.

Inspired thinking about the herdwoman, Bore. I think you're remembering Shula being in two minds about forsythia, because it's yellow and she wasn't sure it could be used in the church flowers in Lent.

R4, yes, utterly, utterly fed up to the back teeth with Lilian, but I did wonder tonight if Brenda might whack her over the head with the office stapler (large, heavy-duty model) and bury her in the foundations of one of Amside's many projects. Not a court in the land would convict if they heard just a fraction of the snivelling and wailing we've been subjected to these last few weeks.

I want more of Jennifer's enforced socialising with Susan grin

grin I'll sign a petition for less wailing, more change-counting and sniffing.

My favourite moment of the last few weeks was when Susan said she didn't want Neil "rupturing himself" (I sadly don't recall the precise scenario).

Forsythia! Yes! Thank you LondonMother.

Am also trying to remember the details of why Lil hates Brenda so much. Didn't B seduce L's toyboy lover? And she had a fling with Slimy James too.

I am undecided whether Brine will have his wicked way with the herdswoman or whether she and Rob will form a liaison, thus putting Hellin's nose out of joint. Or maybe they will take on the visa-less chap instead.

Spot on. Can you believe that Scott was twelve years ago?shock Lillian obviously doesn't feel the same as JD about Ambridge being too small to be the place to harbour grudges.

I will sign Lilacs petition, I'm sick of Lillians soggy sobbing too grin, its almost as if the SWs are filling up every few spare minutes with her wailing rather than having to produce a story line.

PseudoBadger Wed 19-Jun-13 07:19:58

Have to admit I haven't listened for a week and I don't think I care but I'm about to catch up now on the commute

olgaga Wed 19-Jun-13 10:57:26

I'd happily sign a petition to give Lil a decent reason to snivel (at long last).

IMO this is TA thread grin I remember the 'Giant Veg.' storyline too (OMG what does that say about me?) don't anyone answer that grin. I think the Clarrie actress should tone down her 'funny countrywoman' accent.

Yes to whoever said STF up Lilian before i go bonkers too.

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 20-Jun-13 13:39:22

I reckon Brenda is going to kill Lilian before long. I used to love Lilian but this prolonged snivelling and her being so mean to Brenda is too much.

And I don't even like Brenda.

ppeatfruit Thu 20-Jun-13 13:49:53

Agree Mrs.Campbell grin

Brillig Thu 20-Jun-13 14:41:36

I agree, Lilian is now just incredibly annoying (not that I had much sympathy with her to start with tbh). And even though I'm no fan of Brenda, strangely enough I feel quite protective of her when Lilian is so outrageously rude and dismissive.

Re. my Clarrie post, I too have memories of various 'hilarious' storylines when people completely change character purely for the sake of a laborious new plot-device, but I think part of the problem for me is that 'new' Clarrie (I know she was Clarrie years ago - so confusing) has such a downbeat, mournful-sounding voice that she comes across not as jolly and dotty when she raves on about her interminable flowers, but actually deranged. It's certainly not remotely funny, to me anyway.

heronsfly Thu 20-Jun-13 14:57:39

If it hadn't been for Jolene talking some sense, last nights soggy sobbing would have been unbearable, all that talk of how much she loved him, i thought she was beginning to realise that he was a nutter, Lil has never been stupid yet another personality change
I did enjoy the Ed, Jazzer and Jamie scene though grin

GrendelsMum Thu 20-Jun-13 16:00:16

If only Brenda would do the sensible thing and walk out, leaving their hopeless business in the lurch.

Do you think she has any herd management qualifications?

LondonMother Thu 20-Jun-13 16:46:16

To be fair, heronsfly (what am I saying?) it's not unknown for people to talk about the recently deceased as if they were going to be fast tracked for canonisation when, as those around them often remember all too vividly, it was a very different story before they died. Lilian was starting to see he was trouble, but now all she's thinking is that he died alone, she was leaving him increasingly testy messages when in fact he was already dead, she's now stuck with Matt, etc etc. That part isn't so unbelievable but I could have got that message without hearing her wail away for what feels like most of every episode of the last fortnight.

Brenda could be the herd administrator. I bet they're going to need one. She's used to working with a prize cow, after all.

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 20-Jun-13 17:39:19

I thought Brenda was going to go, surely the whole finishing with Tom was getting her ready to flee Ambridge for the bright lights of Coventry or Birmingham.

Dauphin Thu 20-Jun-13 20:40:21

I fervently wish Brenda would go....and 'Lilian' is such a poor actress...argghhhh...

Dauphin Thu 20-Jun-13 20:42:07

Aww...but I do love the Archers (feeling very disloyal)...gosh I am saying that in my head in a very Lilian-esque way...!!!

ppeatfruit Fri 21-Jun-13 11:05:53

I don't know about Lil's acting Dauphin Pheebs and Pip make her sound like Judy Dench actually !!!

What annoys me is that the SWs have changed her character sooo much. The way she hasn't realised that Matt 'knows' and moaning on and on about how she loved the psycho Paul. As i posted before she should've kicked them both out a long time ago IMHO !!

R4 Fri 21-Jun-13 21:32:06

Yesterday's episode was awful. First we had Lilo Lil huffing and puffing and sighing fit to bust (if I was Matt I would have gone on holiday without her) and then moany Tony getting paranoid about Brine. I was waiting for JD to make an appearance (perhaps being snippy about Jim) and we would have had the full set!

OliviaMMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 21-Jun-13 22:00:23

Roar at Lilo lil

tourdefrance Sat 22-Jun-13 09:40:24

Just caught up just caught
What about

tourdefrance Sat 22-Jun-13 09:42:37

Sorry. Was trying to say, wharf is Helen doing leaving her son with some bloke she's met 2 or 3 times??

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 22-Jun-13 13:15:34

I know tdf - there's something a tad creepy about Rob with the imaginary family

Tommy Sat 22-Jun-13 13:55:40

I thought that about Rob - would Henry even want to go with someone he met once on a hill? hmm
