There you go, typical Archer mechanical behaviour, pooing in the dairy and ruining everyone's lives.

mrszimmerman Mon 25-Jul-11 12:56:47

she'll bring down the whole organic enterprise Dirty Lass!

I only heard a bit of the omnibus - is it definitely Clarrie's fault? And, if so, how? She was ill Thurs and Fri, felt better Saturday and went back to work Monday, surely that gave her 48 hrs clearance required?

(The most sick-making moment was Helen wittering on about the risk to Henry who hasn't even been weaned yet, let alone gorging on organic ice-cream hmm.)

BlooCowWonders Mon 25-Jul-11 13:42:14

But eddie reminded her she'd still been unwell on the Sunday.
So it is all her fault!

ObviouslyOblivious Mon 25-Jul-11 13:46:50

I was really struck by how similar Pat and Helen are. I thought Pat was a complete bitch and totally unprofessional to Clarrie. I guess this highlights the dangers of working for your friends. As they won't be friends any more will they?

lalalonglegs Mon 25-Jul-11 14:16:43

But Clarrie isn't really a friend - it's not as if she and Pat socialise together at all. I like to think of it as the sort of "partnership" that country types have with a particular horse, say, which they ride into the ground, have put down and then say how fond they were of it grin.

It's hard to gauge how serious this latest crisis is as Pat, Helen, Tom and Tony always manage to make every single thing that happens in their lives sound as if it is a massive inconvenience that someone is deliberately trying to bait them with.

Clarrie must have picked up the bug from somewhere in Ambridge,will there be any investigation into the original cause, the Bull maybe ?.

mrszimmerman Mon 25-Jul-11 23:15:12

haven't they implied it could have come from eddie not cooking some sausages properly?

ObviouslyOblivious Mon 25-Jul-11 23:20:06

The timing isn't right for it to have been the sausages. I'm an EHO, and people always blame the last thing they ate before they got ill, or the most memorable recent meal.

EggyAllenPoe Mon 25-Jul-11 23:25:09

the incubation period was 3-5 days..so not sausages.

bit of a 'light relief' story line really. i like it.

bing on the agricultural sotryline editor with som mor goodness...

GrendelsMum Tue 26-Jul-11 15:29:10

So do we know where she might have got the EColi from? Could it be The Bull?

mrsgordonfreeman Tue 26-Jul-11 15:39:50

I knew this would happen from the moment she commented that she'd had the squits and blamed the sausages.

It's obvious really that the mucky working classes would contaminate the lovely ice cream that the posh people ate.

heronsfly Tue 26-Jul-11 18:32:01

I wonder if they will trace it full circle, discovering that Clarrie caught the bug at the dairy to start with !grin

iwastooearlytobeayummymummy Tue 26-Jul-11 23:19:21

Hopefully it will be have been one of the Tom's Bridge Farm sausages, evil, whingebag, smug,pompous little git.
So obviously his sister's brother and parents' child !!!!!!

jodevizes Sat 30-Jul-11 13:14:07

Just another case of band wagon jumping. When is Brian going to open a 10,000 head dairy farm or maybe Will goes off his head with a gun.

heronsfly Mon 01-Aug-11 18:01:59

I wonder if this new secret supplier of crayfish is going to be the source,maybe Carrie ate something from them ?

SenoritaViva Mon 01-Aug-11 18:08:34

I was hoping they'd find the source was from Susan. She's so bloody smug about it not being her and she's such a busy body...

That said, she's nothing compared to Helen in the smug category.... when oh when is she going to get her come uppance?

heronsfly Mon 01-Aug-11 19:44:01

I think Tom could do with a spot of come uppance too !

GrendelsMum Wed 10-Aug-11 18:40:52

You know, I think this is a really good storyline, plenty of tension all round. I really feel for everyone involved, especially Pat trying to cope with her feelings of guilt and Tom and Helen nagging at her, and trying to be fair to Clarrie too. And Clarrie is great.

And I'm secretly quite taken by the appalling James and Leonie...

OhdearNigel Thu 11-Aug-11 12:58:42

That episode with James and Leonie was hilarious !

Bumperlicious Sat 20-Aug-11 13:57:50

I really hope they find it has come from Tom! I'm sure it was the case that the ecoli stayed for longer than a usual bug so even if she had followed the 48hr rule it might still have spread.

jodevizes Sun 21-Aug-11 18:50:46

Oh yes, please let it be from Tom but I guess if there hasn't been any other outbreak, apart from the ice cream,we will never know.

GrendelsMum Mon 22-Aug-11 21:59:47

Love Pip coming round and telling Brenda about how to market Bridge Farm. It'll be hilarious if she actually turns out to be good at this marketing lark.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 24-Aug-11 22:52:15

I would quite like PIp to suggest doing a webchat on Mumsnet grin

ObviouslyOblivious Wed 24-Aug-11 22:56:16

Pip is clearly THE ONLY PERSON ever to learn about marketing. God I hate her.
