    It was before she came to Ambridge. moving there was all part of getting over it and making a life without children I think.

    I see. The Vicky storyline might be a good way of exploring more of Lynda's story. It was obvious while they were talking that there's lots we don't know.

    Lynda had a chat with someone who was having trouble concieving, could have been Shula or Siobhan or Lizzie, and sadly mentioned her sorrow that she and Robert had never had a child, "it was not to be."

    Lynda at her best, most touching.

    I'm very happy for Vicky, this must be wonderful news if you had always wanted children and had given up hope of having any.

    And I know this would make people act a bit more excited than normal, but honestly! Does she ever think about anyone else?! On a minor level, it was actuallly Phoebe's party, not hers! Then there's Mike's reaction to consider (or not, as the case may be!) And from a practical point of view, most women seem to prefer to wait 3 months before telling anyone, just to be on the safe side and make sure that their good news stays as good news! Someone shake the woman & tell her to calm down!

    (Oh - and can someone tell me why Kate seems to keep getting away with her behaviour please?! She's another one who needs to be shaken!)

    Agree, Dinah; and without any apparent tinge of rancour or bitterness.

    And when she arrived at Lynda's she couldn't believe that Lynda hadn't already heard, as in her head the entire village was buzzing with the news, but thought she was "being sweet" and pretending not to have heard for her, Vicky's sake. She really is the most solipsistic, self absorbed person imaginable.

    And the awful Adam.

    Probably she's way behind the self-absorbed Caroline.

    And there is no need to mention Vicky is way, way behind "Me" (Sausage) Archer of bridge Farm.
