Alice enjoys watching Chris at work shoeing a horse, with Lilian also enjoying the view. Alice plans a cosy time in at the cottage for her upcoming birthday. It'll be their last night together before she's back at university. Today's also Kate's first day at uni. She's relieved to find a few other mature students, but horrified to hear Alice's plan to cook for Chris on her birthday - she's becoming a little housewife.
Elizabeth asks surly Kenton if they're still on for a meeting with his business contact Barrie. If not, she's planning a day trip with Nigel. Kenton confirms he's happy to help Elizabeth with her business, but she should keep out of his.
Brian's being hassled to pull the plug on the market site deal with Matt. Adam has a brainwave to keep Matt on side though, suggesting Brian sets up a separate company. Lilian can sit on the board of the market project, without being privy to the rest of Borchester Land's business. Adam puts his idea to Lilian, who points out that Amside needs a say in the decision making. She's not just Matt's proxy either, although she'll discuss the idea with him first, of course.
