    and yet anna, you criticise Kate for seeking care from grandparents for her children. I'm surprised you think others looking after one's children is wrong.

    locki, Kate demanded her right to have possession of her daughter for a year, because she wanted to be with her.

    Don't you find it just a little hypocritical if she then dumps the daughter on her husband's parents?

    It's not as though the money she earned were needed to keep her family, as was the case with Roy and is the case with Hayley; we have been told that she doesn't earn.

    Oh! That was so sad! Poor,poor Hayley. That child is going to break her heart. : - )  That and the Afrikaans Interruptus it's just one more for the hat trick.

    I do so 'love to hate' when it comes to Kate but if 'Feebs' turns out like her mum then reluctantly I'll just have to 'share my love' between them!

    In general, it's a bit of a lost cause to expect a teen to think about the feelings of others - short of toddler-hood, the teen years are generally the period in our lives when we are most selfish. And in specific, as I mentioned elsethread, no one has troubled themselves to point out to Phoebe she's being a bit selfish and upsetting other peoples' plans, so it seems that her parents are rather bringing this on themselves. If you never tell someone "your decision hurts my feelings", then how can you expect them to ever stop hurting your feelings?   So what's Kate's excuse then?

    She's simply a rather nasty and very self-absorbed person?

    Of course it isn't wrong to have help from grandparents but it should only be help. I think Lucas's parents do most of the childcare whilst Lucas earns the money and Kate swans around feeling important.

    There are no excuses for Kate and her behaviour. She is plain selfish.

    No excuses for Kate at all - but how I love having her back! she is a fabulous character - so morally bankrupt that it's addictive listening whenever she is on.

    Oh dear, am I the ONLY person to realise AGES ago that Kate would keep Phoebe and not allow her back - I said this when Mr Spineless allowed her to go in the first place. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!

    I think that Hayley's always had the idea at the back of her head that Phoebe would never be back. Her arm was twisted into agreeing to he trip, but she always thought it was the first step in Kate's takeover.

    She must be seeing this as the second step - "just a few more weeks"... And wondering what the next excuse will be.

    I think Kate is the eternal teenager...........

    I have a sinking feeling that if Phoebe returns it will be with Kate Seedpod and the Nollster in tow, unless she just parks them with their father and grandparents, Roy is starting to have suspicions about Kate, she was reluctant to reply when he asked about her family. Has the gloss worn off SA?

    Get that nice kid Phoebe back to Ambridge quick!! Whoever lives in Ambridge (unless they are a "chosen" villain) can find their way back from being affected badly by the world outside (what some may call the "Real" world!) As soon as she is away from the influences of Kate and the world she is in and gets back into the happy country bosom of her family she will be able to become the lovely little girl she was before!! ....You wait and see!
