Over at Bridge Farm, Tony has slept in. Pat agrees with a guilt-ridden Tom that Tony is feeling the strain. She knows Tony won’t admit it though, as he’s enjoyed feeling useful again. Tom suggests that Tony eases back into milking gently. Tony reluctantly accepts this, volunteering to do more in the office.
Martin Sykes from the planning committee tells Pat that Brian’s DVD has gone to every councilor on the committee. He says it’s full of shots of cows grazing outside. This sounds like a gross misrepresentation to Pat who’s keen to see Ruth’s copy. Tom suggests that she speaks to Hattie Marshall, from Borsetshire Against Factory Farming, as she’ll be speaking at the meeting. Pat thinks it’s a good idea.
Lynda’s pleased that the B&B is booked up to next Sunday. Pleased, that is, until she and Robert get a distress call from Leonie who has left James and is on her way to Ambridge Hall. It transpires that Leonie has taken a week’s leave and, as her own flat is occupied, she could be around for a little while. Lynda provides tea and sympathy while Leonie wonders why she always seems to pick the wrong men.
