Pip's surprised to find Jill up at 5:30am. Pip's up to get in some final milking before heading off to High Wycombe. Jill admits that she sleeps very lightly these days. They chat about Pip's night out with Toby and Charlie - whilst Jill doesn't really approve of Toby, her ears prick up at the idea that he might persuade Pip to stay on. But despite her worry about Heather moving in and disruption on the farm, Jill encourages Pip to do what's best for her and get away. Pip packs her things into the car and waves goodbye, as she goes to start her new job and training in High Wycombe. Meanwhile, Ruth gets Rickyard ready for new milker Matthew to move in to. Peggy was upset after Susan's outburst. Pat's also avoiding Susan, worried about opening the new Bridge Farm shop for fear of accusations of opportunism. But Tom refuses to feel guilty. Rob's plans to cook - as a surprise - for Helen on Thursday, so grateful for her support over his recent resignation. With energy focused on the new farm shop, Rob influences Tom in the choice of new design, steering Tom away from his traditional preference. Still, Tom seems upbeat about Rob being involved - he has had some good ideas.
