As David helps Ruth trim a cow's foot, they discuss Elizabeth's results at the English and Welsh wine awards. She didn't win but the judges complimented 'Chateau' Loxley. The cricket team won on Saturday but haven't been doing that well. As David goes into detail, Ruth tells him he's overestimating her interest in cricket. They note that the slog of harvest is about to begin.
In New Zealand, Meriel is delighted with the news of Kenton's engagement to Jolene. Kenton agrees she can be a bridesmaid and tells Jolene that purple is her favourite colour. Jolene hadn't planned on having bridesmaids but is happy to agree, although purple is pushing it!
Lilian admires Jolene's engagement ring. The asbestos at the paper mill is going to take all of next week to get out. Everything is much harder without Matt. He's still in Russia but after a row on the phone he won't speak to her. She's now regretting cutting off his access to the business account. To reinstate it, the bank would have to issue a new card. She's worried how he'll cope and is desperate to speak to him.
At Jolene's urging, Lilian leaves an apologetic voicemail message, begging Matt to let her know where he's staying, so she can get a new card to him.
