Ta Janie.

Do we know who Russ is ?

… & Welsh Phil is back, but no Kirsty or Shula. Mmmmm.


No Olwen.

No idea who Russ is, Armers, but in the list I am looking at Shula is definitely (boo) there


Maybe it’s something to do with Lily. This is the week after her secret is revealed. Could it be anything as dull as she has a boyfriend? Please, please, don’t say she is preg… no, no, no, I couldn’t bear it!


Let’s hope she can’t either.
Even they wouldn’t think that was a good or interesting idea… would they? nooooo


Gus, these are the people who have given us the Adam and Ian baby story. And Ruth’s miscarriage. And Kirsty’s miscarriage and the Grief of a Man. And Pip’s pregnancy. Speaking of which, the devoted and anxious to be a hands on dad Toby hasn’t been heard from of late, thankfully.

My only hope is Toby does a bunk and Pip has a horribly colicky baby and Ruth refuses to help and won’t let Jill help either.

Or that Ben plays with it and ‘breaks it’, accidentally-on-purpose like? I have some obst & gyn wishes for Pip, too, but decency forbids…


Ooops. :thinking::clown_face:

“Russ from the dairy contractors” was mentioned on 30/January and 2/February this year, advising on the new milking parlour.

He previously appeared on 21 April 2004. Lowfield:

o by all that’s tedious, more mil’n’ parlour fun and frivols. Haud me back.
Isn’t there a story where a Princess chokes on a herringbone (possibly less specific than that, but a herring is by and large a fish)? So there is a faint spark of hope.
Damn, spark extinguished. It has a ‘happy’ ending, except for some poor wee dog, o ha ha, how we all laughed. I really don’t like Dickens very much. Little Dorrit and Bleak House excepted, with a following wind.

Firstly, thank you.

Secondly … so this is Roof & Peep dragging on the milk’n paarla story. Oh deary me.

Third of all … dragging up actors from 2004. Really ? While there are so many long-lost ones already. Couldn’t Anisha (‘bless you’) have plucked some expertise in this respect ? Or Molly Button ? What’s Darryl doing these days ?
