I'm starting this new thread as apparently our other one was over a year old!! shock

We'll have to do more gossiping to prevent this happening again.

Here's a link to the old one.

OH and I were speculating that Whining Wiwyum might also lose his job. He worries constantly about doing anything to p* off Martin Wossname and now he's talking about taking more time off if Poppy needs him .. Doesn't the house he lives in go with his job?

Emmur could just jump out of the frying pan into the fire and might find herself living with the Grundys again but crammed in at #1 The Green with Eddie, Clarrie, Ed, Will and all the assorted children! (I assume the SWs will have written out Pore Old Joe by then)

Johnny's nice but he's a bit too young. grin

gulligranny Sun 18-Aug-19 16:20:47

Well quite, Merlotgran - don't you feel they just belong together? And sweet Ed, who was only trying to get the loot to give Emma what she wanted, would then be free to find someone nice .... oh wait, this is Ambridge we're talking about, actually IS there anyone nice?

merlotgran Sun 18-Aug-19 15:34:40

I wouldn't be surprised, gulligranny though why anyone would want to shack up with mister miseryguts beats me.

If Will had kept his mouth shut Ed wouldn't have lost his job yet Emma, who never takes prisoners, let him off the hook without so much as a squawk.

gulligranny Sun 18-Aug-19 15:17:00

DH and I think that Emma & Will are going to get back together. It makes sense, doesn't it? She gets a house and he gets George back, and Keira and Poppy can be company for each other. The inter-family wars will make for plenty of juicy story lines too.

True Archers addicts put up with l o n g stretches of boredom for the juicy bits in between craftone.
I have tried to detox but am always enticed back by one exciting storyline and am back in its clutches once more. sad

I used to love the omnibus on a sunday, was a highlight, I tried again last sunday and switched off, it was so boring. They must have lost very many listeners

Lazigirl Sat 17-Aug-19 09:19:05

What a clever illustration Merlot. Every time I hear Neil I will now imagine him with aforementioned ring in nose. Or not, watch this space!

Luckygirl Fri 16-Aug-19 22:25:06

I doubt it!!

merlotgran Fri 16-Aug-19 21:53:55

I think it's going to take more than a bowl of chilli for Susan to get the ring back in Neil's nose.

Will she reform??

Luckygirl Fri 16-Aug-19 21:42:55

Go Neil!! - good for you!

I have often wondered why Neil has put up with her all this time; and whether he knew what a moo she is.

Scribbles Fri 16-Aug-19 21:38:11

It's needed saying for years - but I never thought Nee-yull would be the one to say it.

Agree about the Shula yawn factor but I thought Ryan Kelly (Jazzer) put in a brilliant performance in the scene between the two of them.

Lazigirl Fri 16-Aug-19 21:12:59

Susan's a prize pantomime bitch.

Lazigirl Fri 16-Aug-19 21:11:00

About time Neil. Perhaps he'll move in with Ed wink

merlotgran Fri 16-Aug-19 19:27:07

Another one cheering on Neil here.

As for Shula. [bored emoticon]

phoenix Fri 16-Aug-19 19:19:00

Well done Neil!

To think that Susan was about to try to scupper Ed's chance of employment! Hypocritical in the extreme!

eGJ Fri 16-Aug-19 19:18:38

I heard the loud cheer for Neil from all TA Gransnetters! Never thought he'd do it grin

LullyDully Fri 16-Aug-19 19:17:51

Good for you Neil!!!!

SisterAct Fri 16-Aug-19 19:17:45

About time she was told. Good on you Neil !!!

suziewoozie Fri 16-Aug-19 16:46:51




Joe will die during the night before the day they move so he never leaves Grange Farm so Ed will have a bed

Horrible Hannah will buy the house Em lost

Tracey will be installed rent free in Grange Farm as Oliver’s latest squeeze

I’ve no idea

Next question ?

phoenix Fri 16-Aug-19 16:37:26

Avor2 you'll have to join the queue!

merlotgran Fri 16-Aug-19 14:40:25

Does Henry still go to Judo classes with Keira?

Has Tim really buggered off??

Where will Ed live when Clarrie and Eddie move to No1 - unless Joe dies PDQ

What's happened to horrible Hannah?

Who will rent Grange Farm?

And I still want to know who is living in Blossom Hell Cottage. grin

LullyDully Fri 16-Aug-19 13:44:21

Yes, but what happened to Helen and the judo man?

merlotgran Fri 16-Aug-19 13:32:19

I'm getting fed up with Peggy's 'Lady Bountiful' attitude to the whole village. Ghastly woman!

David and Ruth sounded pathetic jumping with joy because they've made it to the grovelling short list. Josh of course didn't get a look in whereas the saintly Pip...….angry

Kate and Jakob are made for eachother. More please!!! grin

LullyDully Tue 13-Aug-19 15:18:38

Linda has always been portrayed as a snob in the past, but has never been bitchy in my experience. Last night she was horrible to Tracy, and to what purpose?

I am softening to Freddy somewhat.
