…is bound to happen, isn’t it? Jill’s reaction should be entertaining.
Why does Toby want her christened? What is his motive?
To stop Carol Tregorran rendering her down for flying-ointment?
Presumably to keep in Daddy’s
will good books.
Though of course the real reason is the anticipation of Jill having kittens; cue interminable repeats of “Gran, there’s something I want to say” plotus interruptus. In the end it’ll be nothing and the reason for Dullen’s introduction is finally made clear; Jill has now learned to move on
I dislike people being deliberately nasty to other people for no particular reason; Pip’s malicious unpleasantness to her grandmother and to her brothers is the reason I think her an odious character.
I’m surprised at you! How you can say such a thing?
One reason, shurely?
He wants an occasion that implies he and Pip are a couple and this is because he took Robin’s advice to heart: marry that girl. After all, the first or perhaps second thing Toby observed when he met her was that Pip came with a farm attached. Moving his stuff in, doing Pip’s bidding … my prediction is that a proposal is in the offing.
Moving his stuff in is slimy.
Using Roooaaaarrrrghhhheeee plus his cargo-bike (I’ve come to the conclusion it must have been a cargo-bike (see other thread)) ding-ding!
He might be using the bike; but Ruairi is at school at the moment.
Well, he’s supposed to be…
Remember JD popping over from SA to deliver a casserole or something?
And still being at home? Yes.
I reckon she travelled by bedroom.
Now there’s a thought! It explains everything, almost.
…on her bike? Perhaps she has a ladies bike, that is a bike for a lady! Not one of those awful man’s bikes with the big, round, ugly tube thingy coming out from the front of the saddle, but a lady’s bike! …or a cargo bike?
Calm yerself, Laddie and go and read The Third Policeman. 'Tis an awful warning.
