    One minute you agree with David about the pressure the next your laying

    on with him about Lizard's heart.

    He'll never be free at this rate. OoooooNooooooo.

    Jill has always seemed to me to be a caring mother, so it's yet another character re-write into someone who's a specialist in emotional blackmail.
    Lizzie needs someone to tell her to face reality, and who better than her mother? Instead, the silly thoughtless woman is pressurising her sons, both of whom have jobs of their own.

    Yes, she was a great help, but if the SL is to be a showdown between Rooth & Lizard, then this has to drag on for a bit longer yet.

    I wonder how long Lizzie would have let Nigel abandon LL to help Ruth if it had been David that fell. I'm guessing about a day, maybe two, before she told Ruth she had to face facts and employ someone to help.

    The old Lizzard was never backward in coming forward, was she?
    She certainly liked to have her way.

    Even when she was 'comforting' Pip about Jude dumping her, I always
    had the feeling she was observing herself, and saying " Look, this is
    me, Elizabeth Pargetter, dispensing largess and advice to all those
    flaky people who can't get their life in order" .

    The role of Lady of the Manor came very easily to her.
    Perhaps she feels it only right that everyone keeps her there.

    I can`t understand why Jill hasn`t moved into LL while Lizzie is coping with all this. What else has she to do.

    I cannot imagine another family where a mother who gets on reasonably well with her daughter, who lives pretty near and who knows the daughter has heart probs, and with 2 children of school age, would not be living in for the time being.

    Jill drives - she could do little things like lifts to & from school; we know she makes casseroles and it would be much nicer to have your mother make them than some servant. If I were her daughter & she hadn`t come to stay with me and make me cups of tea and tell me it was all going to be alright, I would never forgive her

    (But then I had a good mother not some interfering agenda-ridden* old biddy like Jill)

    cheers nesta

    *as in for eg interfering in where L & N wanted to send their children to school, not to mention Pip & Daniel

    Oh yes we have to be reminded of Lizzie's heart-as if we could EVER forget.
    Worry about David Jill but not really a word for Ruth and the kids working the farm without him-as Nigel would have said he seems superfluous to requirements at Brookfield.

    It would almost serve Jill right if David ended up having a heart attack.

    Wouldn't it be fantastic and serve Jill right if David and Lizzie BOTH had fatal heart attacks.

    But I was under the impression that when Lizzie had heart surgery some years ago, it was to solve/repair her heart problems once and for all?

    It was just a thought Nesta, very casual, Im sure you can understand.....
    But Ive just stumbled across this website, after giving people near and far, grief about T.A (which is also Territorial Army- Scary..!) So Im new to this, but look forward to seeing other comments..like from the lovely Scarlett, er .. the Squire, Gevaise, ( who says what he thinks, which is no bad thing and a very nice Vicki Shortbread. So If , I appear here again I hoe , at least you wont ignore me, seeing that Ive been moaning about T.A., for years, and I might have found a Comfy Moan Zone, whatever that means.
    Your comments are absolutely superb....and priceless......
    So I hope you allow me to join in occasionally..... X

    Hello PaulOwen - We are all in a very moan-filled mood, right now.

    Another sickening epi. with baybee Cheesus and MadDonna this
    evening.
    Let me compare it to visiting friends in Paris at the beginning of the
    French Revolution.

    But grab a Welcome drink at Le Bull before you join us on the barricades!

    Yes G_AC I was puzzled about Lizzie's ticker, and on another thread I was reassured that she had the surgery to repair her heart and should be just tickety-boo now. So why all the consant mumbling about her heart?

    More worrying should be all the stress on Ruth who had breast cancer. But of course she's only the daughter-in-law.

    I think you`ll like it here paulowen. I feel it`s a bit like flagellating oneself or something as punishment for years of TA listening - you know it`s all wrong but you just go back and back (goes for the flagellation too, I always think).

    Whatever, TA is an addiction but I feel those who come here have taken it a whole staircase further. I thought when I came that I would see the error of my ways when I met with other addicts/dissenters; turns out it` s like going to a BYO AA meeting

    (just so you know - coming here is really dysfunctional imo*)

    cheers nesta

    *but if you listen to TA you are half-way there anyway, so..
