Days, weeks a month at the outside.

Flora accompanies Cissie to one her routine visits to the Doctor. Cissie leaves her handbag in the Doctor's room and Flora goes in to retrieve it, half hearing a conversation Flora listens outside to hear the Doctor inform the Nurse that it was only a matter of days or weeks, Flora assumes the Doctor was discussing Cissie. Flora sets out to make Cissie's last days perfectly happy, denying her nothing. Soon Cissie becomes unbearable, getting exhausted by Cissie's demands. Cissie proves she's not quite the fool, by playing up to everyone.

A really funny idea, that uses the old mishearing something trick. Favourite bit has to be Cissie in the dress shop trying on all different types of dresses. It's not the funniest episode, but it is sweet and you end up feeling sorry for Flora, must be a first in the series. Flora's realisation of Cissie's eventual state of health is really funny.
