Wednesday, 26 January

David and Ruth muse over Iris’s visit, and when Leonard drops by and offers to return Iris’s jacket, Ruth mentions that she’s not sure Jill will think much of that. Initially puzzled by what Ruth means, Leonard feels terrible when it dawns on him what Jill might be thinking. While Ruth’s resting, Kenton, Shula, Elizabeth and David enjoy themselves playing board games. Shula mentions that the car crash brought back everything with Mark, and David reflects that he and Ruth were really lucky. Kenton and Elizabeth ask who David thinks will take on the farm in the future between Pip and Josh – or even both? David says that although they’re getting on alright at the moment, in the long term no farming would get done because they’d squabble like toddlers! Kenton teases David about retirement, but David’s reflective and says that even though he can’t wait to get back on the farm, he now knows everything will be taken care of, so he’ll be able to step back occasionally to look at new projects. At the end of the evening, and as Shula and Elizabeth jokingly gloat over winning the game, David says it was just what he needed. Pip and Josh are really concerned when a cow-in-calf slips and damages her hip. Alistair’s called urgently, and with Pip and Josh’s help, Alistair manages to get the cow’s dislocated hip back into place. Relieved and thankful, they head off to share the news with David and Ruth.
