monday is wash day

It's not like I'm some sort of housework-glorifying domestic goddess or anything, but there's something very satisfying about hanging up clothes on the line on a sunny windy day. And it makes everything smell so lovely and fresh!

Sekrit message to Archers fans: OMG! The excitement! The drama! I love it when they resurrect storylines from the past! And that's why I love the Archers - they can and will bring up a story that started years before.

Yes, when Jennifer was going on about being expected to bring up another woman's child I was surprised Brian didn't even gently bring up the fact that he'd brought up two of Jennifer's! But of course, she didn't actually have them when she was meant to be with Brian, which is the crucial thing. I was also surprised that Siobhan was so amazed that Jennifer wasn't enthusiastic about bringing up Ruaridh and that she kept saying "I need to know that she'll be a proper mother to him" - I mean, I know he's just an innocent party in all this, but really, did Siobhan really expect that Jennifer would be delighted to bring up her husband's child by the woman with whom he betrayed her - at the age of 62?

I mention the age just because Jennifer was looking forward to a comfortable retirement, with her large-ish family all grown up, and didn't show any signs of wanting to look after more tiny children.

Especially as Siobhan has dismissed her mother as a potential parent for being "too old"! Really, the whole thing is a bit contrived.

Mostly I just keep thinking, "Hi, Siobhan, why on earth do you trust Brian? You think he'd lie to Jennifer whilst sleeping with you, but he'd never lie to you?"

I know, I'm amazed she's so trusting! Although if you listen to the episodes aired this week, she becomes more sceptical (although still pretty unrealistic in her expectations).
