Hannah took Neal home and then, in her usual nasty fashion, sneered
about him to Tom. As well as seemingly urging Tom to complete the
break with Jazzer. Luckily Tom and Jazzer are closer than that. It
would have been impossible as they work together to carry on bad
friends.

I think while Neil is off and Hannah is running things she ill mess up
in some way . Cut corners, sneer at a sow or some other fault. And I
think she will try and weaken Neil's position and improve hers.

I liked Geraldine, when I realised who was talking. I thought Tom
liked her too so after Horrid Hannah has been driven off or eaten by a
sow maybe Geraldine and Tom can get together. Unless it is to be
Natasha. I would rather she goes for Jazzer or Johnny though. To show
Tom he is not prime alpha in the area.

Please can Roy's visitor not be Lexi back for good? Or ofr pregnant.
And Please can Pip and Toby not end up in love.

I don't like Hannah either and would like to see her brought down.

I think Geraldine may be a bit old for Tom but may be because I'm thinking
of her as the midwife in Doctors.

I'm still holding out hope for Pip and Rex to get together. He sounded a
little wounded when he heard Toby was sleeping over.

As Penny said, the actress who plays Geraldine is a great deal older than
Tom in real life, but because I know what she looks like I have no idea
whether she sounds it.

That's what baffled me about the whole scene. From what Bert said the other

responsibilities heaped upon her by Lizzie's mental absence in recent
weeks.

I was baffled, too: not only because Geraldine was coping admirably but
also Lizzie, who was on the verge of a breakdown for the last five weeks,
was suddenly compos mentis. All at once she could accept that there is no
point in trying to appeal, when everyone has been telling her that all
along. Had she taken a listening pill?Thank goodness her strangled-
hysteria voice has gone. It was getting on my nerves.

Tom Archer was born 25/02/1981, current age 37.

The question is, when does middle age start?
I wouldn't say that he had reached it yet, but he probably isn't far off.

Half way to three score and ten years, so he is not a young person.
Ought to have been married and had children 10 or more years ago. They
said in the paper this week that men should not have children after 35.

Who are this "they" who say things? Should we believe them, despite the
anonymity they hide behind? I believe them to be the Rosicrucians, or
possibly the Illuminati. Perhaps both, or maybe neither. There's a
conspiracy going on somewhere, and I'm determined to find out who's
behind it. I've been middle aged for twenty five years, and intend to
remain so for the rest of my life.

My children are older than Tom. I don't like to think of them as middle
aged although they are by Kosmo's reckoning. I have for some years
claimed to be in late middle age and intend to continue to do so for as
long as possible.

Isn't it something like the toyboy/nymphette formula??[1]

n+7 when your age is <n
n-7 when your age is >n

and n is a number based on how you feel today.

I'm more bothered about whether my 34 yr old iis going to do the
cooking, cleaning and housework, as he'd be plenty fit enough for it.
And I'm certainly not clearing up after him.
