Something sad happened this week. The Derek joke was blank on the script! Hurried re-editing means his warming poultice turned up a little late, Derek probably works for Southern.
I sometimes feel sorry for Lucy – she tries so hard to convey the serious farming and educational aspects of the documentary set in Ambridge in her monologue and then the scriptwriters simply douse the plot in sperm and unwanted babies and an apparently very speedy nativity play is shoehorned in alongside the never ending panto such that her monologue is bound to become somewhat full of innuendo, euphemisms and allusion. No you are right – I don’t feel sorry for her – I just wish I found it that easy to write so well! But then Lucy gets wine deliveries – perhaps they help!
Ian has been smoking for years – and it is the first time that Robert has heard it mentioned! And bets are being taken on either Peggy or Ruby ktb-ing in the near future. Anisha is believed to be filming another series of “Line of Duty”. Robert remains convinced that Pip will not go ahead with having the “Piplet”. Robert – guess what – hindsight is wonderful! Robert goes onto predict the family will find out about the termination in a year’s time. Lucy will be saved from having to pay to find out what Jill’s reaction to a “Toblerone” will be!
Happy Birthday Roifield.
