No 26 - Living Room: Dec returns from work anxious to spend time with India. Dec wants them to take India on a walk down the park. Didge says she can’t as she’s so much work to do. Didge tells him that she’s also agreed to help Kate with her work.

Park: Harry and Kate are wondering why Sophie has a sudden interest in cricket. At that point Callum and Toadie approach with Rocky and Sophie deliberately throws the ball that way.

They decide to walk Rocky together and as they’re leaving Didge and Dec arrive with Dec kicking a ball accidentally in Toadie’s path. They run off and start their own game of football. Kate asks Didge if she wants to do some physics. She realises that Didge is tired an offers to leave it, but Didge says it’s ok.

Erinsborough News Offices: Karl is trying to talk Susan out of running the story, but Susan is refusing to listen saying running the story is their best option. Susan wonders what they’ve done wrong to deserve everything.
