In the lambing shed, Adam and Brian chat about Susan’s party. Adam hopes he won’t be late for his own party. The student, Clare, is due mid morning, but a ewe looks like she might be about to lamb. Later on, Adam reports that thankfully the twin lambs arrived just after Clare. They were tangled, so he had to enlist her help in getting them out. Brian leaves to help Jennifer load the picnic for the shoot, wishing Adam a less eventful afternoon.
With Helen keen to get away for the day, she and Kirsty head out for a walk. Kirsty tries to dissuade Helen from walking too far, but without success. Although she denies it, Helen arrives for Adam and Ian’s party already feeling tired. Pat notices and worries she’s overdone it. As the guests gather and admire Ian’s stylish decorations, there’s palpable tension between Helen and Tony. When he tries to catch up with her for a chat, Tony finds her ready to leave. He tells Pat it’s obvious Helen can hardly bear to be in the same room as him. Pat assures him Helen’s genuinely tired out, but Tony thinks it will be like this for the rest of Helen’s pregnancy.
