::Staggers in, carrying a priceless work of art::

Can't stop - Mr Thornton is helping me with the ironing and it seems there is a riot afoot.

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 21:54:25

Ooh, the excitement. I thought Maud had the final post there but Massive just pipped her at the post grin.

Now, back to the field trip.

Massive has just pointed out:
Oh ha hah hah hah and grin grin grin

I've just been reading the publicity on their web-page, and i quote:

Take the opportunity to enjoy everything Gisborne has to offer. You’re guaranteed a Labour Weekend to remember

<< makes immediate booking >>

Frightfully sorry to pip you at the post, Maudie,on Gizzy's thread. But I think you'll agree I finished him off in style.

Do I get the first facepalm of the thread, too? <<excited>>

GOH is Guest of Honour.

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 30-Aug-11 21:58:51

'Tis baffling. I tried to post post 1001 and it told me the thread was full -perhaps because it knew that your post was on its way? Spooky.

As I mentioned, I have a very important GOH here myself. He has just explained to his mama that he must act on his feelings for me Margaret and now he is proposing. I understand you completely.

A few interesting places we good add to the itinerary

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 30-Aug-11 22:00:05

My betrothed is shocked by your lewd behaviour

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 22:01:27

I find the proposal/rejection scene quite hard to watch, Maud. The utter desolation and hurt in his eyes makes me feel so sad for him.

::must get a grip on reality::

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 30-Aug-11 22:04:26

Yes, LadyDamerel, but it's as nothing compared to the way his face falls as he realises that, however long he waits, she isn't going to look back at him.

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 30-Aug-11 22:05:20

Mind you, beginning your romantic proposal by wittering on about the conctents of the fruit bowl is never likely to help, is it?

SupermassiveLBD Tue 30-Aug-11 22:07:18

Let's look on it as a tribute to his superb acting skills, LadyD. I feel just the same when he is snubbed by that Stupid Girl.

Of course we know it's not real.

<<off with the fairies emoticon>>

SupermassiveLBD Tue 30-Aug-11 22:09:23

Some peaches might have done the job

<<High fives Maud>>

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 22:11:06

I don't know. Look back at me just doesn't wrench my gut the way the rejection scene does.

My favourite moment is the 'He was her brother' realisation with Higgins. How he conveys so much emotion in the few seconds he is reacting, I don't know.

I used to scoff at books (Georgette Heyer is a prime example) that used to talk about eyes 'speaking' but those scenes prove, for me, that it is actually possible.

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 22:12:21

Yup, Massive, re. that Stupid Girl. Guy's eyes are most expressive.

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 30-Aug-11 22:14:44

::Passes out and requires urgent attention::

I agree entirely about that scene with Nicholas Higgins. The range of expressions on his face as he - at last, the poor dear boy isn't always very quick on the uptake - realises that Fred is her brother is a joy to behold. I also like the scene where he twigs that Nicholas has taken in Boucher's children and that it was Margaret who suggested that he approach him for work.

SupermassiveLBD Tue 30-Aug-11 22:18:53

And the way he enfolds her in his arms, and drops a reverent kiss on her hair.

I want to smack her.

I really must watch N&S again. There are so many memorable moments. The only thing I don't care too much for is the hat.

DumSpiroSpero Tue 30-Aug-11 22:19:37

There are indeed lots of lovely moments like those in N & S. My favourite is the very last bit at the stations when he turns round and says, "You're coming home with me?" I had no idea that was coming and wibbled so much I nearly fell off the sofa!

DumSpiroSpero Tue 30-Aug-11 22:20:56

And the way he enfolds her in his arms, and drops a reverent kiss on her hair.
I want to smack her.

ROFL! grin

SupermassiveLBD Tue 30-Aug-11 22:21:07

First two lines refer to Gizzy of course. Yes, yawn, yawn, I know,,,

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 22:21:58

This scene, Maud?

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 22:26:20

And the way he enfolds her in his arms, and drops a reverent kiss on her hair.
I want to BE her. grin

Surely not this hat, Massive?

ComeIntoTheGardenMaud Tue 30-Aug-11 22:27:37

Not quite, LadyDamerel. I was thinking of the moment when Mr Thornton goes to Nicholas Higgins' house.


DumSpiroSpero Tue 30-Aug-11 22:28:14

My that's a big one LadyD wink!

Will some Gizzy porn fiction help take the edge off ladies?

LadyDamerel Tue 30-Aug-11 22:30:00

Oh yes, Spiro. That scene too. When he's utterly downcast at her going off to London, then realises she isn't.



I was only thinking earlier that I should give RH a bit of a rest as it's making me a bit hot and flustered, all that unadulterated testosterone and iron to N&S, until you've all reminded me quite how wibbletastic that is too.
