Kathy and Kenton have a lovely time visiting the Christmas markets in Vienna and have great fun trying out all the different foods on offer. But Kathy draws the line at going on Santa's miniature railway. When Kathy laughs at something Kenton says, Kenton fondly tells her it's been ages since he's heard her laugh like that.
Ruth and David are surprised when Shula turns up unexpectedly at Brookfield saying she just had to get out of the house - Alistair's dad is driving her up the wall. Now Alistair's built him a ramp, Jim's in and out of the house all day and following her around. Daniel thinks he's wonderful, mainly because Jim subverts Shula's authority all the time. Ruth offers to have Jim round for supper one evening; it might be easier to deal with him when Shula has other people to back her up.
Adam visits Brookfield to see if David and Ruth would be interested in becoming partners in the anaerobic digester project - they could provide some animal wastes. They think it's a great idea but will need a couple of days to mull over finances.
