UK Time Friday May 9th – Episode II
The show opens at the funeral of little Paul Connor. Liam and Maria are sitting in the front pew. Everyone is somber at the funeral, but Kirk’s girlfriend is wailing like a professional mourner. I sympathized with her mainly because she has this amazing emotional pull over me, like she understands my inner most feelings. I had the same sense with Princess Diana.
The funeral was very sad. After, the small group gathered at the grave yard for the remainder of the service there and once everyone left, Maria and Liam sat the grave side. Liam didn’t say anything in the church, but at the grave yard feels like he wants to say something. Maria encourages him and he talks to the baby.
Graveside, Maria also apologizes for not telling Liam about the baby and basically making a mess out of the whole situation. After the funeral Maria and Liam go home and Maria decides not to go back to Audrey’s house. The other funeral goers head to the pub.
The house swap is in full swing between the Peacocks and the Websters. The estate evaluator has come by and is deciding on what the houses are worth. After Clair is totally gracious regarding Sally’s house, Sally is a bit of a cow while going through Claire’s house.
Once the evaluations came in we learned that Sally’s house is worth 98 thousand pounds. At the time of this writing that converts to $175, 927.05. Not bad for the down market suburb of a northern England city. Claire’s house is worth 123 thousand pounds. That is $219,408.62 in Canadian funds. The difference is close to 50 grand. Sally is chuffed, but Claire is pissed. She feels that Sally influenced the valuation by making comments about room size.
