MAFS Tues night chat. By the way, is anyone still watching Seven Year Switch? I may have to watch it on catch up so I can see who ended up staying together.

Over to guest recapper Daisy (thanks again).
After previous episodes focussing mainly on Jono and Clare, tonight we see the clashing duo depart with a farewell chat to camera. Good luck Jono. Good luck Clare. Good luck Fugly and Pugsly. The psyches do a nauseatingly “knowledgeable” (hmmmm 😒) segway into newlyweds Simone and Xavier. Like a real competitor, Xavier wants Simone to compare their relationship to the other couples. Xavier thinks they brought their A game and won all categories; prettiest, wittiest, and most in love. I am hearing Carly Simon in my head; “You’re so vain, I bet you think this song is about you”. But Simone is more concerned about the day to day reality of their relationship than the appearance of it. She wants to know when Xavier is going to want to turn off the TV and spend time with her. Xavier as good as grits his teeth and yawns at the thought of having to talk to Simone or make time for her, but he covers his arse….almost….by saying babe at the end of every sentence. “Make a booking, Babe. I have a five minute slot between eating meusli and the footy match”. Simone is feeling very special. Ditch this guy, Simone. You will have zero self esteem left after 3 months.
Unfortunately there was an electrical explosion outside and I don’t know how but it b*ggared my recording so I missed almost all of the meet the parents scenes. Feel free anyone who wants to recap these scenes. It would be great to read what I missed, and good to have a different take on things. I resume viewing in time to see Simone’s mum ask Xavier will he be bringing flowers to her lovely daughter. Xavier as good as says, “If I have to”. Simone is now already singing, “You don’t bring me flowers…anymore”
Affectionate Bryce, on the other hand has no trouble spending time with Erin, showering with gifts and even…..listening to her. Wow ladies! Erin has a moth phobia and Bryce has two moths in his apartment, so they may need to move. It’s Erin’s 26th birthday and Erin is opening her present. She praises Bryce for listening to her, so I am thinking it’s “Granny’s undies” in that parcel, but no, it’s gym gear. Remember Erin told Bryce she had a problem area…her bum. Yep. Good listening Bryce. The happy little cuddle bunnies are playing house as sweetly and happily as two kittens with a ball of wool. If these two could bottle that love bliss they would make a fortune. We’ll ALL have what she’s having.
This is where my power outed for these two, so I return to find a dark cloud looming on the horizon of their perfect love. It seems Bryce’s sensible parents have offered to babysit the grandkids but Erin thinks 26 is too young for motherhood. Plus, she hasn’t done her bum yet, so never mind working off baby fat. Erin thinks she might be fine without kids. She is happy enough to remain the only spoilt member of the family. But nurturing Bryce has too much love to give and he needs babies. Will this be a deal breaker for the couple?
As soon as our third married couple Kristy and Mark, leave the treehouse the rubber hits the road…literally. They have a 7 hour drive to Mark’s farm, which leaves Kristy very cranky. She thinks that she and Mark are well suited, and Mark always makes her great breakfasts, but she just can’t see herself living the remote country life. She needs a beautiful, big dairy farm in the middle of Sydney. Instead she opts for Plan B and lures country mouse Mark into the city to see if he could get used to being a town mouse. She even tries to get him to succumb to the beat of her techno music. I think Kristy is visualizing Mark in a smart suit and tie, selling insurance. Or perhaps she could let him join her cleaning staff. She proudly shows Mark around her Sydney flat (the tour takes 60 seconds), but Mark’s not feeling the ambience. Me neither Mark. Kristy’s flat is as clinical as a hospital reception area. I am guessing there was a magazine table for waiting patients. Sadly I did not get to see meet the parents so I will guess. Kristy’s dad asks Mark what his finances were like and if he was able to support his daughter so she can retire and have 10 babies. He offers Mark a job in his factory if he can produce a son and heir to carry on the family name. Kristy’s mum just wants to know if Mark likes her cooking.
That’s about it from me tonight. I hope someone, Maz? Bob? might fill in the gaps. Feel free to take a totally different tack. Adios loverbirds. 😚😚😚😚 Until next time.
