New thread in time for Friday's episode...

Toomuchtea Fri 23-Oct-15 18:08:21

Ooh! Thank you Pseudo. Fine sparkling new thread.

Well done, Pseudo, well done. Or maybe Nicely done, Pseudo, nicely done? Though I still feel the spectre of everyone who ever taught me English hissing over my shoulder there is no such word as nice.

Toomuchtea Fri 23-Oct-15 18:09:40

Well, that's odd. Their shades are obviously more powerful than I thought. What they hissed was - there's no such word as nice. Mumsnet appears not to like italics.

Thanks Pseudo - think I'm going to shudder every time I see this thread title...

Minimammoth Fri 23-Oct-15 18:17:06

Good title Pseudo. I liked the R4 feedback item. The sw and soc will be preening that they are getting so much attention.

<<shudders>> at the thought of having to face the smugness of Rob again tonight.

Hello! (old but infrequent poster back with a namechange)

I've not listened for the last few months (Matt, the Hadley Hough debacle, and the pointless Fairbrethren did for me in the end) but I caught today's Grundys' apostrophe moment and thought "mumsnet's going to have a lot to say about that".

I was not disappointed.

Toomuchtea Fri 23-Oct-15 18:32:17

I had to restrain myself from saying more.

tibbawyrots Fri 23-Oct-15 18:42:44

Loved the apostrophe question but did hope that Joe would have got that right and laughed at turkey-apostrophe-s grin

Good thread name too smile

I did wonder what use Pip will get out of a fountain pen though as she's a farmer - can't see a farm office being the sort of place to use anything but a biro tbh.

I've never been near a farm office but I know what mine is like blush

BoreOfWhabylon Fri 23-Oct-15 18:45:07

Ah, thank you Pseudo

I wonder what will come to pass in the course of this thread?

The finding of the rotted corpse of Scruff?
The finding of the rotted corpse of Stefan?
Midwife twigging that BadlyDone Hellin is being gaslighted (gaslit?)
Midwife twigging that BDH is not upduffed?
Henry having a horrible hunting haccident?
Adam and Charlie finally DTD?
Grundyboys having a rumble with the rustlers/poachers?
Fallon and Emma finding out that My Little Cafe is not to be, thanks to Knob?
Susan getting her tattoo lasered before the big reveal?

Mystic Bore's crystal ball is a little murky at the moment grin

marking place really, but I highly doubt that Rob was alluding to Austen. And if he was, it was mistaken- Emma was being a cow, which she realised (how old is she? not surprising if she gets a bit carried away)
whereas, Helen doesn't need instruction from Rob....
(....realises I can't remember why he said it but he can sod off if he thinks he in any way compares to Mr K)

goldface Fri 23-Oct-15 18:50:56

Quick help me! Bloomin ds came in during last night and wittered on at me. Please explain the badly done reference for me??

PseudoBadger Fri 23-Oct-15 18:53:33

"I did wonder what use Pip will get out of a fountain pen though as she's a farmer - can't see a farm office being the sort of place to use anything but a biro tbh. "

I also thought what a shit present! Perhaps at the beginning of the course, but at the end?

Shallishanti Fri 23-Oct-15 18:58:51

Rob said to Helen, 'badly done Helen'
in Emma, Mr Kinghtley tells Emma 'badly done Emma' when she takes the piss out of an elderly impoverished neighbour- she reflects on what he says and realises he is right.
Whereas, Rob is NEVER right.

BoreOfWhabylon Fri 23-Oct-15 19:01:14

Peep will use the pen to dig stones and gubbins out of cows' hooves.

Abraid2 Fri 23-Oct-15 19:10:19

My parents gave my son a pen when he finished GCSEs. He was thrilled and uses it for 'special' Christmas and birthday cards.

Perhaps Pip is more sophisticated than some on this thread believe she is.

PseudoBadger Fri 23-Oct-15 19:12:40

I have also received a pen as an academic gift - but I'm not a farmer grin

SimoneDeBeaver Fri 23-Oct-15 19:14:48

oh Scruff!!!!!!

BoreOfWhabylon Fri 23-Oct-15 19:14:58


SmallLegsOrSmallEggs Fri 23-Oct-15 19:15:38

Nooooo scruff!!

Wordsaremything Fri 23-Oct-15 19:15:46

In tears. Oh scruff

BoreOfWhabylon Fri 23-Oct-15 19:15:53

Was his body left here by Knob though?


fredabear Fri 23-Oct-15 19:15:56

DH - 'he's evil that Rob'
No sh*t sherlock hmm
