Thursday, 16 June

Susan prepares a Mediterranean spread for Hannah, who’s feeling the strain of stress at work combined with supporting dementia care for her mum. Susan’s planning to knit booties for Natasha and Tom’s new-borns. Over dinner, Hannah wistfully reminisces about visiting Lisbon with her mum before her dementia set in. These days Hannah’s taking calls from her step-dad who is caring for her mum, and she wonders when the right time will be to find residential care for her. She’s grateful to Neil and Susan for listening to her. Neil wants her to know that they’re friends as well as colleagues. Hannah then gets a message from Con, her step-dad – she needs to call him. It won’t be a quick one so she reluctantly takes her leave. Susan sends her off with a food parcel to take home. Hannah tells Neil he married a really good woman. Neil agrees Susan’s the very best. Tom’s grateful that he and Natasha are being fed at Bridge Farm. They’re still settling in at April Cottage. Tony’s pleased to hear it was all good news at yesterday’s scan. Natasha joins them and Tony heads off on an errand. She’s unperturbed by Tom’s shock on learning that she’s told Pat what she learned about the sex of their babies. After realising that Tony also knows the information having being told by Pat, Tom relents and agrees to be told. Natasha announces that they are having a girl and a boy. Tom thinks that’s perfect. He couldn’t be happier.
