Helen has a nasty cold and Rob gets her to stay in bed today while he looks after the shop. Helen asks about Ian and asks Rob, if he sees Ian, to let Ian know she has been trying to call him. At the shop, Rob encourages Pat to help him make sure that Helen stays in bed. Rob also talks to Pat about Christmas when she mentions the Bridge Farm traditional tree-decorating ceremony. Pat later visits Helen and tells her that perhaps she Rob and Henry should enjoy their own Christmas Eve tradition this year. The Grundys offer a warm, toasty welcome to Peggy at Grange Farm and look forward to Christmas there. Joe and Peggy discuss changes in farming over the years - having seemingly come full circle, Joe's happy to be back where he started. David and Jill discuss the changing nature of dairy and the very real possibility of losing the Brookfield herd. David confides in Jill - he really needs Ruth back home with him.
