Will this thread make it to the wedding? Will it outlive Tony?

ErrolTheDragon Tue 25-Mar-14 19:11:55

Are we moooving over here now or filling the old thread?

Brilliant title!

MikeTheShite Tue 25-Mar-14 19:12:47

thanks pseudo

PseudoBadger Tue 25-Mar-14 19:12:55

Thanks to Zero for the title smile

Bluestocking Tue 25-Mar-14 19:13:24

Hello, you two!

Cretaceous Tue 25-Mar-14 19:15:24

Great title smile All this happy announcing at less than 8 weeks... it seems bound to end in disaster...

Agree cretaceous: doomed I tell you, doomed
Poor little baby blessing

ZeroSomeGameThingy Tue 25-Mar-14 19:20:50

Wow - speedy!

Thank you lovely Pseudo.thanks

Don't know what to say about that episode. Unconfined joy about Ruth's baby? Oh dear....

Elizabeth is muttering about history repeating itself by having 4 little Archers. That's it, it's going to be a triple Baby Blessing, just to upstage Jill.

Sorry, didn't mean to double post.

Lovely new title. Just need to listen and catch up now.

TheShimmeringPussycat Tue 25-Mar-14 20:04:10

I enjoyed that. They seem to pack much more into 13 minutes these days, every line seems to contribute in some way, instead of being filler.

PseudoBadger Tue 25-Mar-14 20:14:56

There is no way that Pip squealed with excitement!
Poor BabyBlessing.
I thought Peggy might keel over actually. Knob would be happy!

Thanks for the new thread!

Great new title.

I also thought they fitted a massive amount into today's episode. I thought Elizabeth's reaction was delightful, but I have to say I found it hard to believe that not a single person is allowed to express what must surely be the real life response to this situation: Oh my flipping god! what are we going to do now? How will we manage?

As for that complete cow (no pun intended) Peggy sailing over to remonstrate with poor Tony as if he's a naughty little boy who got a bad mark in his maths. Why can't she save her ire for the dreaded Hellin?

Weeeeeeelllllll - Ruth and David are financially secure, they can house and feed and ultimately possibly employ another child. They seem happy with the news and dote on their current 'charming' (except for Pip) kids so I think it's highly realistic that everybody is chuffed. It's EASY to be chuffed when you're not the one needing to give birth to and be responsible for the offspring.
I was sweating a bit tonight with all the joy. If she miscarries I will be bloody annoyed now.

Hello, may I join? I am a very long-term Archers listener but these days seem too often to miss episodes. I have been using your previous threads as a catch-up service.

Welcome smile

We should have some sort of quiz for newbies................

HumphreyCobbler Tue 25-Mar-14 20:51:33

I haven't listened to tonight yet, I know Peggy is going to annoy me now.

HumphreyCobbler Tue 25-Mar-14 20:51:59

Oh, GREAT title grin

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 25-Mar-14 20:55:35

Thank you although I might fail the entrance test: see previous remarks about missing chunks of recent Archers history
