Ruth's dealing with the practicalities of Heather's house in Prudhoe as it goes on the market. Elizabeth has an idea for Jill's birthday, which is in a couple of weeks - a party at Lower Loxley. David, Elizabeth and Jill are impressed with Pip and her new efficient trackway system for the Brookfield cattle. Discussing some of the detail, Jill shows that years of supporting a family of farmers has given her some pretty good knowledge too - amazing what you pick up when making tea in the background. Work continues on the Bridge Farm shop, with Johnny helping. Rob has put in a livestock pen and convinces Helen he had told her all about the idea - she's clearly just tired from working flat out. Rob wants to restore that post-honeymoon glow - perhaps he and Helen should make more time for each other and have a 'date night' once a week. Rob's also keen to get moving with his plan to adopt Henry. Rex worries about not getting firm orders for Fairbrother Christmas geese.
