The Mum in particular is driving me nuts, why is she crying because this other lady has a picnic tea?

Meglet England Mon 06-Jan-14 09:41:08

And what is wrong with the dad taking them to gym and swimming?

Oooo, I'm annoyed now.

I had to turn it over.

She is a bit of a chatterer ...!

MrsReiver Mon 06-Jan-14 09:43:59

She is certainly something! I wonder why he has gone straight to a private school.

Negative equity isn't putting them off shock

This is why I rarely watch reality TV. I want to shout at them.

Aww now we have to go on the BBC website to find out if they have moved.

I will be back in 5 mins. Place your bets now.

" Thinking about what’s best for their young children, Gemma and Chris reassessed their plans to emigrate after returning to the UK.  Although it’s taken some time to come to a decision, as of December 2013 Gemma and Chris have decided to stay close to their family support network in the UK.  Nevertheless, Chris is still in touch with the head teacher he met in Adelaide and they hope to pursue a move once Maddie and Oliver are slightly older."

Marking place for tomorrow! Roll on "better work/life balance" malarky! Am catching up on the 1st episode this afternoon...5 mins in and I hate her already.

PestoStormissimos Mon 06-Jan-14 16:13:22

When is the new series on?

Have Sky+ed for tomorrow. Missed todays but will try and catch up on Iplayer.

I always wonder what happened to the woman from last series who was so horrid to her husband and said she would go without him if he didnt want to leave his family. She was cold! I hope he left her.

DrNick Mon 06-Jan-14 17:14:35

she was fricken nuts
HOW was his life going to be less stressful there?

Ha ha I saw this on this morning (had the dentist so recorded it) and I thought of you lot.

I will set it to record all week but the bummer is I am only home Monday and Friday mornings now so will have to join the banter later in the day.

DrNick Mon 06-Jan-14 17:19:48

her accent even on the scale of brummie ones is DIRE

I watched a bit of this today and it constantly amazes me that people think that you can't have family days out in the UK and / or that in Australia you don't have to work a full week . When she was going on about this being the most time they'd spent together since Christmas I was literally shouting at the telly that if you had a weeks holiday in the UK you'd be spending the same amount of time together ,what is the matter with people .

Floralnomad Mon 06-Jan-14 17:21:15

drnick I was going to say that ,where did it come from as neither of her parents spoke with that accent .

Meglet England Mon 06-Jan-14 17:30:41

I'd love to know what happened to the family who were going to leave their teenager daughter behind. I was off sick last Feb and mainlined WDU from the sofa blush.

Davros England Mon 06-Jan-14 18:38:15

Have been away until today, didn't know this was on again. Will set TiVo box and try to catch up today's. They usually drive me nuts!!

Dillydollydaydream Mon 06-Jan-14 20:15:17

Ooh I do love a bit of Wanted Down Under. Will have to watch on catch up. I went through a phase of wanting to move to Oz a few years back.

DrNick Mon 06-Jan-14 21:38:46
