New Pippa screwed us up

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

…according to Waterford Whispers news. In fairness, it was a traumatic event for a lot of us.

A few people in Summer Bay seem to have had extreme changes of mind lately:

Jett: Marilyn should stay away from John / I’ll help John woo Marilyn.
John: I’m not interested in Marilyn / I’m very interested in Marilyn.
Alf: I am a stoic man / I am an emotional wreck / I am stoic again.

I can’t keep up.

In other news, town party planner Roo threw a very cute going-away party for Pippa Jr. That wee one is a super actor. Aww. She and Sally are off to the States for treatment on Brax’s dollar, but they swear they’ll be back.

IN CULT NEWS: The boss man is called Murray. Oscar wants out. Evelyn loves the cult.

Cult ag teacht

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

YESSSS there’s a new cult in town; Zac’s sister (is she?) showed up and pleaded with him to help her rescue some other family members*. DEADLY.

In other news, wee Pip nearly got a tear out of me when she was talking about Summer Bay being her home. Pity she’s a goner.



* I was half-watching, half-playing Plants vs Zombies, so I can’t be sure.

I miss Flynn, sez Sally

Flynn Saunders, double trouble

Photo from the wonderful

Which one, sez I? Do you think she has a composite in her head when she thinks of her erstwhile husband?

Winston came good with the money, the Blaxland has been sold, and Sally and Pip are heading for America, where the streets are paved with miracle cures. Alf warned young Fletcher against getting her hopes up too high.

Sasha is utterly disgusted at the obvious attraction between Chris and Indi. He is clearly a bleedin’ dope, but the horse and carriage was a nice touch.

Jett is acting the boyo with Marilyn and John, being a proper moody teen and slagging off their bus tour. He’s going to tell John that Marilyn lurves him any second now.

Melbourne Mix-up

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

The Braxton band of brothers went to Melbourne for Heath’s Buck’s night. During the night, Heath rang “B”, Zac answered, so Heath shifted the barmaid. He’s really slow, god love him.

In fairness, Bianca was acting the bollix. She is scared of weddings and put hers off till the last minute. April won’t agree to be bridesmaid as she’s been messed around before. But now, for once, Ms. Scott is ready to get wed; it’s her betrothed who’s thrown a spanner in the works.

There’s no such messing with Pippa 2. She’s already planning her funeral, in between taking medicine and discussing boybands with Alf. Mr. Stewart has some pretty rigid style rules, it turns out.

Summer Bay Commune is a go!

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

So, Sally needed to sell the caravan park to raise funds to cure Pippa in America. Alf tasked his housemates with selling the joint. They had some mad ideas. Roo was launching a marketing campaign, Harvey suggested some “creative accounting” and Marilyn was trying to flog it down the diner. It seems like none of them have ever heard of an estate agent.

The gang gave their hare-brained scheme a half-day to work, then decided they’d buy the gaff themselves. Now, what bank gave them a mortgage? Alf is retirement age, Marilyn is half-waitress, half-hairdresser, and it seems that Roo and Harvey don’t have jobs. Strewth. Anyway, Sally is delighted, she’ll be out of there like a shot now.

Heath and Bianca are mates again, but Zac now fancies Bianca. This does not bode well. Also, since when is Zac a personal trainer? Did I miss that development?

Brax and Ricky got the glad rags on for their day in court. Brax threw a spanner in the legal works by refusing to testify against Ricky. Will he go to jail now too?

Maddie gave Sasha her blessing to go for it with Spencer. Zzzzzzz. That’s two episodes in a row now that Maddie has cried.

Bianca went to a fancy do with Zac, Heath found out and wasn’t impressed. After shoving Zac on the beach, Heath issued him with the world’s worst apology. However, the lovebirds still hadn’t ironed things out. Bianca threw a strop and then Heath pointed out that any time she is due to get married (so far), she has a dalliance with another man. An uncharacteristically astute observation on Heathcliff’s part.

Maddie is sulking yet again because Spencer still likes Sasha. Oh holy night.

The news is out about Pippa. Sally keeps telling her she’ll be grand. Fatal diseases are generally successful in Summer Bay.

Something is amiss with Irene; she is short-tempered and sits alone in the dark at home. She certainly wasn’t impressed when John broke her coffee machine, despite his efforts to put things right. Oh Gawd.

Also, this:


Sad Sal

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Now, we acknowledged that Sally was back, but not why. Wee Pippa is on the way out, life-wise, and Sally wanted her to see the Bay before she popped her clogs.

Sally has no luck. Her fella, Flynn, died just after they got married, and now her daughter is terminally ill.

By the way, “dying”, and “cancer” are two of the best words to say in an Aussie accent, try it there, g’wan. Not that Pippa has cancer. She has, em, something else, and Sally is distraught as she may have to sell the house to pay for Pip’s treatment in America.

Which got me to thinking. Why does Alf live in that house? What happened to the house he used to live in with Ails? Why can’t anyone in the Bay live alone? Why do they all have to live in commune-type scenarios?

And also – who’ll buy the house? I think it’ll be Alf myself. Or perhaps Roo and Harvey will magic up some money and take it over.

No sooner had Sid ‘n Sash left the Bay, than Dex and Indi decided to throw a massive party. It was awesome, we know because Indi proclaimed it so. She packed Casey off to his leaba as he’d had about four beers. He gave her a smooch before he snoozed. She was taken aback, but in the morning she’ll see him in a whole, new, romantic light.

Grandpa Alf

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Sally’s back, with little Pippa in tow; she thinks everything is “cool”. She also thinks Alf is her Grandpa. No, Pip, that’s Michael (is it?), and Flynn’s da, and probably Leah’s crazy angry dad as well.

Roo didn’t take kindly to Sally just showing up and acting like she owns the place, which she actually does. What a mad reaction. Anyway, they’re friends now.

Sally’s red dress was very nice indeed. Obviously the wardrobe department haven’t got their hands on her yet. She’ll be in a massive kaftan in no time.

Maddie is annoyed with Sasha for sleeping with Spencer, especially since Sasha experienced similar angst when Casey and Tamara got together (mucho teenage drama down Summer Bay way at the moment). Sasha’s reaction was to decide she’s leaving town with Flying Doctor Sid. I think she’ll come to her senses shortly.

Holly summoned Zac to the cliffs (Stewart’s Point?) and asked him why he wouldn’t sleep with her. She doesn’t seem to understand the teacher-student dynamic. She is threatening suicide if he doesn’t “go there”. I don’t really care because he is a big dum dum who didn’t even tell another adult that a student rang him in distress.

Ritchie’s Return

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

We all know by now that Kate Ritchie, aka Sally, is coming back to the Bay. What I want to know is:

  • Will young Pippa come with her?
  • How is Cassie getting on with the oul HIV?
  • What age is Cassie’s baby?
  • Is Miles still deadly?
  • Is Miles still eating everything?

I bet if she tried really hard, she could bag herself a River Boy!
