I'm working with Dad.
Hello.
Is this Lightfields Farm? We've come to stay with my Aunt Jane in the village.
She says you need help.
- Does she, now? - I told her.
Yes, we do.
Well, I don't know farming but I learn fast.

Are you 10 or 11? Nine.
Nine? No.
That's Tom, who works for us.

Lightfields Farm We're here.
So what do you think? - Yeah, nice.
- Oh, the forbidden word.
I'm not one of your pupils, Mum.
All right, um quiet? Yeah, perfect for writing.
No distractions.
The beach is only a mile away.
Are you all right? Have you been here before? I don't think so.
We stayed with my aunt in the village.
But I can't really remember any of it.
I was only eight.
Right, ready? - Don't look so worried! - I wasn't.
It's only six weeks.
It's not like we're here for ever.
Don't think anyone's lived here for ages.
The owner's only just started letting it.
He said there were squatters here once but they got scared off.
Scared off? How? Dunno.
Threatened with legal action, I guess.
Go on, sweetheart.
Choose a room.
It's creepy in here.
Oh, my God! It's all right, it's just a bird.
- We're scaring it.
- I'm not having this room, OK? Come on.
We'll try and set it free.
You're listening to Suffolk Sounds with me, Harry Devlin.
Help yourselves to juice and cereal.
All good.
- They sleep well? - They said they did.
Yeah, but did they? - You think they're lying? - People are polite.
I thought we could get some little cards, a suggestion box.
- Barry - "Eggs too hard".
"Beds too runny".
- We want your complaints.
- Are you cremating that bacon? Oh.
It's perfect.
Crispy.
Right Plates nice and warm.
- Agh! Ouch! - Nearly there.
- Granny? - Yes, Lukey? - Is Dad coming? - Yes, he's probably got held up.
- Stuck in some bad traffic, I think.
- He'll be here soon.
- OK.
- Held up lying in bed, more like.
He's doing well.
He's got further to drive out here.
It's not his fault Luke's mum's not around.
It's his fault he's a prat.
Are you all right, mate? Shit, he didn't hear me.
Go after him.
I'll finish the plates.
Those nylons? - Present.

He loves you.
And you love him.

Course I do.
How long's he staying with us? Oh, at least a month, under doctor's orders.
They've ordered him? Doesn't he want to come? Yeah, yeah, but, you know, he likes his own home.
But this was his home.
Yeah.
He hasn't been here since he was about your age.
And he was an only child, just like you.
So you can keep each other company.
Yeah? Here Well, if you need me.
You take it slow, Dad, like the doctor said.
That's what you're here for.
Hey, here's Luke.
Hello, Grandpip.
Good to be back, yeah, Dad? After, ooh 70 years? No.
Right.
Well, er I'll get your bags, then Luke can show you to your room.

There'll be Americans there and airmen and Exactly.
Put pillows in your bed so it looks like you're in it and sneak out.

Why would I lie about a thing like that? Oh, to make a fella feel better.
You know what I've never done? What have you never done? I've never kissed an American.
Really? Well, that is a downright dreadful state of affairs.
Isn't it? It's tragic.

- Well, he isn't here.
- He will be.
He's coming.

Better Harry Dunn than someone we don't know.
And I don't want her going roaming with that Eve, looking for trouble.
- Eve's all right.
- She's older than Lucy.
And Lucy's older than you think she is.
Don't forget, at 17, I first walked out with you.
Eve says she'll give me chewing gum.
You see? Who's she getting that from? You all right there, Pip? Do you want a lie-down? Yeah! Have you started clearing those outbuildings? Oh, Dad, it's crying out for development.
You convert that, you've got holiday lets, you've got a complex.

You were once my pie in the sky.
And I converted you.
