Happy(?!) Sunday everyone brew cake

What will this week have in store for us I wonder?

cheminotte Sun 10-Apr-16 09:12:21

Thanks for the new thread Pseudo
Hope some of the OTHER plot lines move forward this week.

SmallLegsOrSmallEggs Sun 10-Apr-16 09:13:36

There are other plot lines??

mummytime Sun 10-Apr-16 09:15:55

I'm expecting some nice conversations about eggs.

BYOSnowman Sun 10-Apr-16 09:16:13

Marking. Nothing to add!!

Minimammoth Sun 10-Apr-16 09:17:20

Love the title Pseudo.
Eggs could be controversial.

Most apt thread title. Thank you. Lots of talk about increased no of listeners/higher ratings but I think no bugger's taken any notice of those of us who've stopped listening after many years.

Another one?

nelson its worse they think we are too MC for DA. Boils my piss.

However the one line at a time is keeping me amused. If anyone fancies popping over we could do with some more inspiration.

cheminotte Sun 10-Apr-16 09:44:09

I was thinking of the missing curtain cash. I'm sure there must be some other ones.

Empressa Sun 10-Apr-16 09:44:20

Checking in!

Eastpoint Sun 10-Apr-16 10:01:22

Thank you Pseudo.

I'd like to know how Josh's & Phoebe's A level revision is going, whether Kate's yoga retreat is up & running, how Adam & Ian are & what is going on with William & family.

Just in case is script writers are wondering.

Thanks, Pseudo.

In other news, I asked MNHQ if anything is happening on our 50th thread celebratory emoticon suggestion. Olivia has posted on that thread to plead school holidays, so maybe watch this space later in the week!

Here's the thread I'm talking about for those wondering what I'm talking about:

Sunday morning ruined ...

I'm usually quite happy to have the film on in the background recapping what I've heard during the week. Just can't face today. All Ambridged out.

TheSilveryPussycat Sun 10-Apr-16 10:16:56

Thanks for the thread.

Long ago I was looking forward to hearing about Kate's yurts, among other plots which have faded from mind, and which I've given up on. TA made me care about these things, then just discarded them.

The new listeners won't know or care about many of the characters and backstory, as there just hasn't been enough air-time to spare for anything much besides Hell/Knob.

AugustaFinkNottle Sun 10-Apr-16 10:27:38

I agree about following other plotlines, but I do want to hear some reaction from other people, particularly the relatives and those who have some dirt on Knob.

KingscoteStaff Sun 10-Apr-16 10:38:02

And the mystery arsonist - what's going on there?

LyndaNotLinda Sun 10-Apr-16 10:38:22

Another thread! grin

For the first time ever, I am not listening to the film this morning. Can't bear to go through all that again and ruin my lovely sunny Sunday morning.

So you're listening for me as well now!

Gruach Sun 10-Apr-16 10:44:32

The arsonist story appears to be SOC's 50th anniversary celebration of a mystery arsonist story in 1966!

(The culprit then was found to be Polly's father - shortly before she married Sid.)

dulcefarniente Sun 10-Apr-16 10:57:09

Listening to the omnibus I wondered whether Jane Austen had become a SW. Patbot's declaration that she should have trusted her instinct, had never liked Knob sounded spookily like Mrs Bennett after the discovery that Mr Wickham had eloped with Lydia...

ArgyMargy Sun 10-Apr-16 11:05:28

Great title Pseudo! Small - I can barely keep up with this thread let alone take part in another one. I haven't visited AIBU for weeks. Hmm, maybe that's a good thing.

tibbawyrots Sun 10-Apr-16 11:16:33

Thanks for the new thread 🤗

I too am hoping for an Archers episode to be an Archers episode. Are the pastured hens laying? Is the henhouse rebuilt? Did Ed get his certificate? Where's Jazzer? So many questions... 😱

Mrscog Sun 10-Apr-16 11:21:56

Hi, delurking, but can I be really lazy and ask for an update? I haven't listened since Tuesday because I couldn't bear too - I heard the episode where Henry was questioned, but nothing since.

I too am interested in what's happened to Kate's yoga retreat, and the A level revision! And in whatever Lynda's got going on darling.

De lurking to say I've just thrown a tea towel at the radio.

Hopefully countryfile this evening will take a more responsible approach to domestic abuse in rural communities.
