I thought Pip did very well _not_ getting BB; until very late on, she
was saying, more or less, "don't fuss, I'm not ill". But good point
about the parlour.

Seems to have almost disappeared. (Though I'm beginning to find her
increasingly confusable with Lily.)

Not quite with you: we've known about Lexi's children (both daughters I
think) for some time: more time to visit them was one of the conditions
of the surrogacy, or something like that. I hadn't registered that they
were unpronounceable, but am not surprised by that. I've missed that
they can't come to the UK - why? Or, are you saying that question is one
of the ones that need asking?

I thought it had been revealed that the piece of land in question was
too boggy/steep/something to do anything useful agriculturally with. As
such, I can easily see Brian - especially when he was younger, and
attitudes were different as well - seeing it as a way of _making_ that
particular patch produce at all. Wasn't it a pond or something? And 40
years ago Brian (and most others too) might not have known as much about
leeching, water tables/sources, and so on as they do now.

I fear I found the initial revelation very believable - sad, but
believable. And most of the developments since similarly so )-:.

Darryl, Haley, all the other lost characters; Tumble Tussock; as you
say, many. (And like Penny, I liked the recent mention of the bunting!)
