Awww moment of the week: Jason thanking Eileen for all she's done for him.

 Todd threatened to take Tyrone out. Tyrone didn't look too scared.

Who's broke? Not us award: Anna no sooner got finished going on about how skint they were but she was handing over money for tins of lager.

Mechanic of the year award: Really would Tyrone who not so long ago was far too busy to have kept up with the paperwork at the back street garage where they must be glad of any work, disappear off for an afternoon for a walk in the park with Maria? He goes off cuddling his ex in the Park and then expects Fizz to trust him? I know he is a bit thick but even so!!??

Lost kids award: Where exactly were Ruby and Hope while Fizzogg was having her little strop and moving next door?? They seem to be constantly air brushed out while their parents are in the pub. Corrie writers like creating pregnancies but cannot seem to deal with those children after they are born.

Stony broke award: So despite the constant bleating we have had to ensure from the Windarms about their ‘poor’ situation over past weeks they still manage to turn up yet again for a drink in the Rovers – ridiculous.

Will definitely go pear shaped award: I thought Tony was supposed to be a smart and shrewd character – would he really tempt fate by shouting his mouth off and “celebrating” the buying of the yard just on a handshake? No paperwork done or solicitors even instructed. Doh!

Sardines award. Why would five adults be so desperate to live with sourpuss Mummy Eileen in a tiny two up two down terrace? They are all working and you would think would want some independence and space. The scene with them all squabbling in the front room/kitchen was farcical and why on earth would a professional like Marcus want to doss down there? Sean cuddling his cushion on the settee is now a joke in our house.

Employee of the year award: That anyone would want to employ Gail who looks and acts half bonkers after the whole Street knew she broke the confidentiality agreement at the GPs and would without doubt snoop and gossip at the gym is stretching credibility to past breaking point. I really cannot stand this character and would buy a drink for any producer that had the gumption to kill her off.

My nominations this week:
Lovely moment - Jason thanking Eileen beautifully written/acted.
Count your children - Eileen, Todd can be unpleasant but he is her son & Sean (also unpleasant) is not!
Thinest Ice - Peter to Tina (Carla in room) "Do you fancy me or something?"

Have to agree with Frosty on space in these houses Eileen, Chesney (even before Fiz & Hope) these ar two bedroom houses - Gail has three bedrooms but even that is tight.

My husband and I had a long discussion yesterday about why and how they are fitting so many people in one house.

Totally agree with Frosty about the lost kids - I'm always wondering when people come in the pub where their kids are. The child minders? So they can go to the pub? Poor Aunty Emily, she never seems to get out of the house anymore because she's busy looking after kids.
