The christening of Duncan starts. Celia have organised a Scottish bagpipe player that is playing at christening. Alf is wearing Scottish clothes!

After christening there is a party at Alf’s house. Ailsa is there too but she is not feeling totally ok.

Pippa notice that Duncan have a temperature and rash that can be serious. Alf will take Duncan to hospital right away. Ailsa say she will come to hospital too. Ailsa got worried when Pippa told them about Duncan’s rash and temperature so it is obvious Ailsa cares for Duncan anyway.
