Hungover Eddie is late for work - he has made Clarrie late for work at Bridge Farm too, as she tried to wake him. Eddie has to work late, and gets an earful from Clarrie back at home, who insists he gets rid of the leftover food. Lilian ribs Eddie over his pretence last night in the bar. Eddie ruefully remarks that Tom's pigs will be getting a treat in the morning. Helen and tom have had no joy selling the Organics shop - the woman who made an offer has pulled out. Helen's worried about Anya, given the uncertainty. Tom has made some sketches of renovation plans for the old parlour. They should talk to an architect, but obviously want Pat and Tony to be on board. There's a big advertisement in the Echo for Open Farm Sunday, with posters all over the village too. Lilian accompanies Peggy to The Laurels, where Peggy spots Christine. Peggy's there catching up with her friend Ted, whose wife Violet is a resident. Meanwhile, Lilian's happy to be avoiding Martyn Gibson - he and Pam are having dinner with Brian and Jennifer. Peggy's shocked when Christine says she's thinking of moving in to The Laurels. Chris feels so lonely at home and Peggy understands. However, this isn't the Christine she knows. Chris admits that the woman Peggy knows might not exist anymore.
