I can't resist alliteration wink

I so wanted Pheobe to say, "I discussed it with Hayley"

Kate can't seriously think it's the norm for 17 year olds to discuss with their mothers the first time they're planning to DTD, can she? If I tried to have that conversation with my dd, I don't know which of us would be cringing more.

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Sun 05-Jul-15 22:34:03

Avid alliteration aficionado also! grin

Thanks for the new thread, Pseudo.

If Kate did want that conversation then she should have brought the subject up and not wait for Feebs to do it.

GypsyFloss Sun 05-Jul-15 22:43:46

Love the new title Pseudo. Perfect.

Just the thought of discussing sex with my mum fills me with horror

She will blame phoebe for this - her own mother couldn't possibly understand but Kate is so wonderful etc

ErrolTheDragon Sun 05-Jul-15 22:57:51

I suppose it's consistent with Kate's total self-obsession.

minkGrundy Sun 05-Jul-15 23:07:13

And her delusion that she is phoebe (not much older) friend rather than her mother. I really thought she'd be all cool mum about it. Maybe her daughter having sex makes her feel old. Also she may not want P to repeat her mistake and have kids young but she canmot teally say that without blaming having Phoebe fir her failure at life.

BuildYourOwnSnowman Sun 05-Jul-15 23:15:04

Tbf she never let having phoebe stop her doing what she wanted

Gruach Sun 05-Jul-15 23:51:24

Am saving all my BOOPS for the return of the superheroine so can only spare a halfBOOP for tonight's double dose of excrutiation.

Although ... that dilapidated house in David's field is causing me some excitement. It'll be Pip's marital abode one day, just as it was her DGM's.

Eastpoint Mon 06-Jul-15 05:04:10

So is Pip going to fail to fly the nest & stay in Ambridge as she's so in love? What a shame if that's the case.

DoctorTwo Mon 06-Jul-15 05:27:25

Poor Kate, said nobody, ever. grin

cheminotte Mon 06-Jul-15 06:32:26

Totally marking my place here blush . Friday's episode was great, still need to listen to Sunday's.

cheminotte Mon 06-Jul-15 06:33:42

Fanks for fab Fred Pseudo

ppeatfruit Mon 06-Jul-15 07:46:39

Travelled Iam sooo sorry blush I was saying you were confused and then I said it was Alex who was on Dave's land when I meant Rex and topless Tobes ,did you see what an alliterative genius Iam there grin of course.

When poor Alex was chucked out of Brine's by stupid <you should've discussed it with ME first> !!! shock duh duh Kate.

Thanks for the new thread Psued You're brill grin

BuildYourOwnSnowman Mon 06-Jul-15 08:33:08

Pip clearly needs a 'Ruth' to her 'David'

Toby doesn't fulfil that and Rex kind of does but I can't say he's coming across much better and they both seem like users

BuildYourOwnSnowman Mon 06-Jul-15 08:35:09

And my bet is that in 6/7 weeks when the geese go into grass, Toby will have fled bored out of his brains and hounded by the many womenfolk he has shagged then dumped

This will coincide with pip about to leave and she will decide to stay home to help Rex

And we will be stuck with her forever

PseudoBadger Mon 06-Jul-15 08:44:06

I'm envisaging 250 fox ready meals I'm afraid sad

BuildYourOwnSnowman Mon 06-Jul-15 09:04:44

It needs to be factored in as another cost.

Per my calc on the last thread I think they may well end up making a stinking loss

Travelledtheworld Mon 06-Jul-15 09:11:47

Aw thanks Ppeatfruit I was a bit confused myself got Home Farm and Bridge farm mixed up... We're all friends on here really aren't we ?

Gruach Mon 06-Jul-15 09:26:53

And we will be stuck with her forever.

Well we are anyway - unless TV or Hollywood prove too tempting. grin

And now they've found her a house ...

I do love the way Jill cannot keep the edge of enmity out of her voice whenever she even thinks about a Fairbrother, never mind speaks to one. It seems strangely harsh (and psychotic) to harbour so much hatred for a long dead woman. (But then, I entirely missed the Robin(?) v Elizabeth SL. Perhaps there's justification there?)

BoreOfWhabylon Mon 06-Jul-15 09:35:23

Great title! I loves a bit of alliteration, I do

What are the odds that Tubby Bearfrother and Mother Africa Kate will have a little get-together in the tent while the others are all off on the jamboree?

Hoping Drippy Pippy will discover them in flagrante.

That will put the fox amongst the financially-disastrous goslings all right

oddfodd Mon 06-Jul-15 09:42:01

Bore grin

Great thread title Pseudo - thanks!

God I loathe Pip. I'm just cringing at every fairbrethren interaction. Didn't she learn her lesson with Jude (was that was he was called? The unsuitable older man)?
