Anyway, we saw the first real signs of the cracks appearing this week, as from their very first scene Peter was moaning about Nick spending time with Simon.
“We’ve only just got up. Can we please talk about something else?” she sighed, but we all know that it’s not just Simon that Peter’s upset about, don’t we?
I can see Peter’s point though. I’d be well fed up if I was him and saw my boy happily sitting eating his breakfast with his new ‘daddy’ only a week after I’d given him up to my ex-wife.
“Touched a raw nerve, have I?” she asked.
Carla knows something’s up, and you can almost feel the tension when any of them are within a hundred yards of each other now. It almost ended in a fight in the street, and Carla had to drag Peter into the bookies’ to stop him belting Nick. Knowing Peter like we do though, we know it’s only a matter of time before he hits the bottle again, and then what’ll happen, aye?
Michelle attempted to reassure her that Peter wasn’t feeling jealous over Leanne being with Nick, but it didn’t really work. Carla knows something’s wrong, and if your partner’s still got feelings for their ex then – if you’re honest – you’ll know you’ve probably already lost them …
The best thing Michelle can do is to keep Underworld ticking along while Carla tries to cope with it all, and she was certainly keeping the staff on their toes here. (She certainly looks like a ‘Manager’, doesn’t she? Very professional-looking!)
“Er, toilet,” Julie stuttered.
“Right. And you’re standing there because?” she pressed.
” … Oh, cramp!” Julie blustered.
Lovely little moment. Keep it up, Michelle. Carla’s going to be relying on you heavily pretty soon if things carry on the way they’re going.
There weren’t any this week, I’m afraid …

I can’t be on Twitter 24/7 so inevitably miss a lot of Carla/Carchelle tweets/photos, so if you’ve got anything that you think would be good for Carla Corner then please tweet them to me and I’ll fit the best ones in, and if you want to know what the hottest pins on the Street are thinking this week, just follow @MrsConnorsLegs!
If you’re loving Carchelle, then trust me: you really should be reading “Just Good Friends?” It’s the story of two women: Magazine editor Helen, and her best friend, yummy-mummy Ruth, and explores just how easily it is to cross the line from a loving friendship into actual love. What happens between Ruth and Helen may certainly help you cope with your frustration at Carchelle not actually having happened (yet?)!
It’s got husbands having affairs – and all the twists and turns you’d expect from a regular chick-lit novel, but – like with Carla and Michelle – will the girl get the girl in the end? CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE “JUST GOOD FRIENDS?”
