As cars keep arriving for "Deck The Hall", Nigel and Elizabeth are in a festive mood. The carriage rides are a success, unlike Joe's cart-rides in the village. He and Bartleby only have two takers all day.
Eddie's done sterling work on the car-park and is rewarded with free ice-skating. When Clarrie arrives, Eddie persuades her to join him on the rink. After initial nerves, Clarrie thoroughly enjoys herself and Elizabeth and Nigel grab ten minutes to join them. It's all very romantic.

Clarrie's broken her wrist and will be in plaster for six weeks. How's she going to manage? There's Christmas shopping, the dinner to cook, the house to clean - and the turkeys to pluck!
