FuzzyPuffling Tue 03-Dec-19 14:12:46

Why thank you. I was going to do a pun on Cliff's "Mistletoe mixology and wine but couldn't quite get there.

Redshoeblueshoe Tue 03-Dec-19 14:13:14

Brilliant tcrgrin

MadisonAvenue Tue 03-Dec-19 15:08:09

I want Jimmi’s house

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 15:23:32

Thanks for the thread, Red- i was stuck at an orthodontist appointment with dd1- annoyingly at the hospital, over visiting so it took nearly an hour to get a parking space. Had I not had to go an get dd2 afterwards, I would have gone on the tram.

And to add insult to injury ,the appointment lasted 2 minutes, and she is still on the waiting list for braces for at least a year.

I will catch up on today's delights later grin.

Binglebong Tue 03-Dec-19 18:23:48

Hmmm, NotAdam is on the fiddle!

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 18:47:47

Just catching up.

Dd2 wants the giant inflatable solar system for Christmas!grin.

JL sell an astronaut bauble. My dad's partner spotted it ages ago snd texted me a picture.

My first thought was Chris de Burgh. (Spaceman came travelling).grin

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 18:50:22

What did they use before they had Dwight?why are they suddenly so reliant?

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 18:52:47

6tl has changed her hair wig.

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 18:54:06

So the artist doing the rip off Mondrian painting is hearing voices?

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 18:56:08

I'm not sure i like religiously neutral Christmas decks.

And now Val is singing Chris de Burgh.

I hate the song.

HalloumiGus Tue 03-Dec-19 18:57:27

I really need to know what you are all watching 😂

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 18:59:38

Halloumi it's Doctors.

It's so bad, it's almost good.

grin

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 19:03:34

Karen is wearing a shiny shirt today.

Did Bumpy T leave all her clothes behind?

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 19:06:57

That space suit is a bit creepy.

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 19:08:26

I hope they got the house cheap.

Hydrogenbeatsoxygen Tue 03-Dec-19 19:11:15

I'm liking the new practice manager, he's far better than the shiny one.

HalloumiGus Tue 03-Dec-19 19:13:03

Thanks @Raahh

LondonLass61 Tue 03-Dec-19 19:18:08

Who is 6tl?

LondonLass61 Tue 03-Dec-19 19:20:03

I think that Doctors is the 21st century Crossroads.
And I love it.

Raahh Tue 03-Dec-19 19:37:58

London Emma. We call her that because she had 5 parts in the programmebefore getting a permanent one- 6th time lucky, 6tl.

SubisYodrethwhenLarping Tue 03-Dec-19 19:38:21

6tl = Emma

blamethecat Tue 03-Dec-19 19:57:39

I did watch but was going to be late back from lunch if I posted blush
Not Adam is up to no good isn't he ?
Jimmi has a very nice house, I'm sure they've done a swap, a bit like ford fiesta and hoped we didn't notice, not sure I'd want the carpet after a night at the icon envy.
Do you think someone is hiding in his house and setting the alarm off ?

Interesting space/Christmas theme in reception grin
And why we're all the staff off to the Churchill for home visits, not very efficient, no wonder they're being stopped grin

NutButterNutter Tue 03-Dec-19 21:25:59

Excellent title!!

I keep missing it, stupid work.

My favourite part of the commentar was someone writing ASTRONAUT in the middle of what looked to be CO poisoning. Totally random and totally marvellous. I do love these threadSgrin

ExpletiveFairylighted Tue 03-Dec-19 23:23:34

Signing in, I keep missing it due to work too but from the comments here I can just about keep up. Have we discovered whether Bear actually is dyslexic yet?

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 10:12:32

Expletive he kind of hinted he might be to Val, when she was talking about reading as a child - but he was talking about a cousin who struggled or something.

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 10:19:09

The swapping of Ford Fiesta was bonkers blame- she didn't just change actress- like Alia- she changed race grin, and her age changed by about 5 years grin.

Something is definitely going on with Jimmi- and I don't know how he has been abe to afford to move(if he has), since he gave all his money away when he stopped being a parther, to his mad ex wife.

I'm putting mymoney on Bear being something to do with his issues- and they haven't even met yet grin.

and they can't have forgotten Jimmi beating up that bloke the other week , can they (of course they can- it's Doctors grin).

FuzzyPuffling Wed 04-Dec-19 11:01:24

Before Dwight I expect they used their own cars and claimed expenses like the rest of the world

<takes a bow for being the one to yell ASTRONAUT. I can usually be relied upon to change the subject at a moment's notice!>

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 11:44:51

Actually blame I went for a check up this morning, and I saw 3 hcp's together, going on a home visit. I thought if that was on Doctors we'd all say it was unbelievable tcrgrin

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:47:10

I am heeeeere!

Ah yes, Fuzzy ASTRONAUT

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:48:03

Maybe they have been watching Doctors for inspiration, red

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 13:48:19

I think her baby has died sad

LIZS Wed 04-Dec-19 13:48:30

What's with the Tom Jones look alike?

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:48:34

Is baby not real?

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:49:11

Oh no it's going to be a sad one isn't it sad

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 13:49:18

Maybe they are following me. Our local TGI's has an astronaut

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 13:50:26

Al has so got you sussed, Bear.

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:50:27

He's acting like dyslexia is something unusual

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 13:52:18

Spacemen are big this Christmas, along with avocados and llamas. Though llamas were around last year.

DD2 has moved on to sloths .grin.

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:52:52

We're still into llamas here

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:54:49

Can't work this one out. Why would the crèche be calling?

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 13:55:06

Own up whose just wiggled their nose ?

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 13:55:33

Clownphobia?

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 14:00:41

Jelly !

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:01:56

Dh rang.

You would think he would know better grin

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:02:31

what have I missed?

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:02:56

Adam is an excellent step dad

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:03:28

Woman still
Being odd but we don't know why

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 14:03:51

Only the woman's dad finding out she told her co-worker about the baby

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:03:58

Oh did I miss what is happening?!?

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:05:01

Nut we still have a lot of llamas to replace with sloths in our house.

As well as the unicorns that the llamas were supposed to be replacing in the first place.

Amongst these, we have a few flamingos. grin.

DD2 is a fairweather reand follower. grin.

LIZS Wed 04-Dec-19 14:05:04

Confused, what's with baby?

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:05:42

grinR**aahh

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:05:55

Al is getting excited.

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:06:14

Oh fake baby?

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:06:20

*trend

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:07:47

Well she is your doll. She just isn't a real baby.

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:08:10

Poor woman. sad

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:08:31

sadsad

NutButterNutter Wed 04-Dec-19 14:10:36

Oh Al stop being annoying

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 14:10:40

Al isn't going to give up

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 14:12:46

Oh you will have that baby there.

By 2.15 tomorrow, by my reckoning.

Redshoeblueshoe Wed 04-Dec-19 14:15:17

Yes she will

blamethecat Wed 04-Dec-19 15:35:10

I sort of watched but my boss came in about ten minutes before the end so I had to switch off (I was in the staff room not at my desk !).
We missed the Llama craze but we love a sloth, particularly the two toed variety, I bought myself some sloth PJ's on Monday, clearly designed for a tiny person as the sleeves and the legs are way too short on me, I look like I wearing a child's set of PJ's ! .

Raahh Wed 04-Dec-19 15:52:52

grin

DD2 is getting sloth bedding off my mum for Christmas (it is lovely, and I want it).

Both girls love a new duvet cover for Christmas, even if it goes against all MN present rules that practical gifts are no no (like clothes). They always ask for clothes too.

I'm not sure where I went wrong. grin.

I love the dancing sloth on the Eve mattress advert- mainly because it is dancing to Pure pleasure seeker by Moloko, one of my favourite groups grin.

SUBisYodrethwhenLarping Wed 04-Dec-19 17:04:20

if you and or your DC like Llamas watch this

It is donkeys years since I last watched it with DC but still remember it

fgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrinfgrin

FuzzyPuffling Wed 04-Dec-19 18:40:37

Sorry I missed all the Llama fun. And I shall miss it tomorrow. Got to go to the real doctors. Drat.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 04-Dec-19 21:25:19

Maybe Jimi's rage will make occasional appearances like his OCD?

I do not like the twins and 6tl's perviness is off the scale. It is so awful to watch I'd rather watch Rhuma shock

How can the Mill afford all new decorations? Every other year they've had a 2 foot tree and a metre of tinsel.

TDogsInHats Wed 04-Dec-19 21:25:35

Thanks for the new thread.
Ah I have fond memories of the gangster clowns episode. That was a Wednesday one, too.

TDogsInHats Wed 04-Dec-19 21:28:08

What is going on with Jimmi? Will his be the Christmas break storyline.. beaten up a few weeks ago and now his burglar alarm going off.
My alarm only sounds for 15 minutes to comply with regulations. Plus my alarm guy would probably come out the same evening if he could.

TDogsInHats Wed 04-Dec-19 21:29:35

That carpet! Jimmi's OCD would not let him walk upstairs in his outdoor shoes.
I take my off at the door.

TDogsInHats Wed 04-Dec-19 21:30:22

Take my shoes off that should saygrin

Peaseblossom22 Wed 04-Dec-19 23:30:51

The house that the women lived in today with the imaginary baby was Zaniels house , did they think we wouldn’t notice

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 09:24:28

grin

Did it have the massive tap? grin

TDogsInHats Thu 05-Dec-19 09:27:19

I didn't notice it was Daniel's houseshock

TDogsInHats Thu 05-Dec-19 09:28:49

Has Bear 🐻 got some sort of dubious connection with Jimmi? Someone might have mooted this already ( might even have been metcrgrin )

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 10:31:23

There is definitely something, he was really odd when Val (?) was talking about how he was the only member of staff that Bear hadn't met, and was asking if Jimmi didn't want to be a Doctor anymore .

I don't like Bear. I just don't trust him. grin

On FB , he seems to have a lot of fans. But I suppose , compared to Becky, anything is an improvement grin.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:48:08

Ruhma is now getting scared by leaves.

There doesn't seem much room for a birthing pool in that living room. Could get messy.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:48:39

Oh. More woo.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:50:28

Is this dodgy house week?

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:51:13

Get her out.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:54:10

Is that the same pile of albums as the last lot who did the quiz?

I really don't know that many people who have vinyl randomly strewn about. Since most people have ipods and alexas.

I know vinyl is popular again- but Doctors seems to use albums as shothand for 'trendy young newly weds'.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:55:29

(Having said that, dh's box of albums are still at the top of the stairs, afte we took them out of the lost for dd1 to look through when she got her record player last Christmas) grin.

The box is too heavy to put back.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:56:27

No. Do not get involved.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:58:08

Is there a woman in the attic?

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 13:59:13

How can he be a full time GP and a bar owner though? I don't get it.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 14:01:04

Just because her waters have broken, does not mean she will give birth in 5 minutes.

Except this is Doctors.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 14:02:51

Has he moved Ruhma's stuff?

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 14:03:58

Oh dear.
Who got the ticket.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 14:07:28

She's so much better than Becky.

Raahh Thu 05-Dec-19 14:07:50

That's a big baby.

Binglebong Thu 05-Dec-19 17:18:42

Excellent summarising Raahh. Shame it was for a rubbish ep!

FuzzyPuffling Thu 05-Dec-19 17:31:26

Thank you raahh

NutButterNutter Thu 05-Dec-19 21:02:42

Missed it again!! Thanks to you, Raahh, I don't think I've missed out.

ExpletiveFairylighted Thu 05-Dec-19 23:38:38

Missed it again here too. We had DH's ever expanding vinyl collection in the (tiny) front room (plus a lot more in the loft) till I put my foot down about 6 months ago and made him get Spotify and a sonos speaker, it was getting so you could hardly move in the room. It's all in the loft now and can stay there.

FuzzyPuffling Fri 06-Dec-19 13:34:49

Right, I'm watching live today. Afternoon all.

FuzzyPuffling Fri 06-Dec-19 13:47:05

(Is this the bloke from the TopCashBack advert?)

FuzzyPuffling Fri 06-Dec-19 13:47:37

He's annoying, whoever he is. Who cares about his blog?

FuzzyPuffling Fri 06-Dec-19 13:47:56

GET ON WITH IT.
