The Goods are preparing to say their goodbyes
19 August 2006 | by (Coventry, England) – See all my reviews

With the arrival of Mr. May and his pig to 'service' Pinky, comes the voice of experience and the opportunity of a lifetime for Tom and Barbara Good.

Mr. May is a full time farmer and explains to them where their self sufficiency bid is failing, from the outlay of their garden to the three mile walk for the goat thats cutting back on her milk yield.

Mr. May knows of a small holding in the country that would be ideal for Tom and Barbara to continue with their chosen lifestyle and will reap agricultural dividends. In fact whatever way the Goods look at it, the move is perfect and an answer to their prayers so they accept the deal and plan their life changing move.

However as the big day is drawing nearer it slowly dawns on them their little Surbiton dream house is something neither of them wants to part with. Yet with so much as stake and all common sense pointing to the bigger property, neither Tom or Barbara wishes to make their true feelings known in case the other thinks them 'soft' and nostalgic.

The only people who know the truth are Margo and Jerry who both Tom and Barbara have confided their feelings yet have sworn them to secrecy.

Can Jerry and Margo stop their move, without betraying their confidence?
