You're beautiful, are you?

Yes, you are.

That's my boy.

Is that smile?

Is it?

Oh, you're the most precious infant in the world.

- Hauled it on the beach, walking by.

- Did you?

- Yeah. Been many years in the family.

- How long have you had it?

Since I was five.

It's amazing.

You're joking!

In my land said, they do a beautiful dance - fertility dance. And they had babies.

Here you go.

I was told to keep it warm.

Well, we should have the results in a couple of weeks.



Sorry, my husband is not here. He's...

Trying to rebuild this, eh?

Are you one of his students?

Think I have the right look, eh?

- Oh, you're Nick! Hi.

So I exist.

Yeah, I know, of course. I just wasn't expecting you, I'm Dawn.

Just hought I'd drop by.

I will let him know.

Hey, let's make it a surprise.

Oh no, I think I should.

Oh, go on then.


Oh. No, he's gone into a class. Do you want to...bring your stuff in? Come in.

- It's a bit of a bomb site.

- I feel like I'm home

I'll take down my things, shall I?

We had no idea you were coming.

We're not really set up for guests yet.

Oh, don't bring her too close to a hen hatch. She's not trained yet.

She's a reject dog. She was abandoned by her owners.


You wanna put up some darn there.


Bloody fucking hell.

Been on a sunbed, then?

I tried to call.

- How the f*ck did you know I'd be here?

- Dog returns to its shit.

He's not very refined.

So what do you think?

- It's lovely.

- Yeah.

- It's lovely.

- It'll be beautiful.

- Beautiful, yeah.

Got all you want then?

This is from my family.

It must be hard out there.

You must miss home.

Oh, f*ck those glasses.

I know they're here somewhere. We haven't really had the time to...

- Shame I was away.

- It was kind of low-key.

- It was only a register office.

- How did he behave?

- Oh well. He wasn't found shagging one of my braidmaids in the toilet, were you?

- Get back to the chopping, missus.

- She's changed you.

- Huh?

- You got all posh.

- Marriage is a constant process of negotiation.

- Yeah. We're signing our chains.

- How's Sam?

- Grand. She's-she's grand.

- And the kid?

- Dylan? Yeah, he - he's a bundle of fun.

Not mine; by previous.

- God, how do they cope with all the coming and going?

- They don't.

Thank you.

- Well, cheers.

- Cheers.

- So you didn't buy the farm, then?

- Ah, it's a wreck.

- Tell me.

- Your brother is a joke, huh? Why haven't we seen him?

- He's been in the army.

- And?

- He pushed our Mum down the stairs when he was a teenager.

- Oh my God. Why?

- Well, she could be a bit... a bit verbal.

- Still.

I burned my Mum with the curling tongs when I was sixteen.

And it wasn't entirely an accident.

She took me to a psychiatrist.

Yeah, well. Our Mum ended up it the hospital.


- You hungry?

- I'm starving, just don't know what...

- Yeah?

- Eggs. Orange. Something to...

- All right, then.

You wanna take that back to bed, yeah?


- I want a baby.

- Be patient.

- What's this all about?

- You buggered it in you sleep.

- You were sleepwalking.

- Oh shit. Shit, I haven't done that for a while.

- What, buggering lettuce?

Oh, thanks.

- Maybe it's because you haven't be able to relax.

- Maybe. I don't feel relaxed.

- Yeah, don't relax too much.

- When we were little, David and his mates - they made me a little obstacle course.

- How do you know? You were asleep! Dawn, what you have to do is talk really quietly...

- ...so I sleepwalked into the pond.

Grab some breakfast.

I'm all right here, thanks.

- I don't know whether we should've gotten that grime...
