"When Pat an' the kids moved into Emmerdale after t'wedding, Jack wanted to do up the side barn for them all to live in. Of course Matt and I had our eyes on the barn long since. And what with this baby on the way and Jackie going back to t'caravan, Jack and Pat agreed it were best to let us have the barn after all. So we got plans drawn up and the builder started work. Past two months haven't been easy with us all crowded into t'farmhouse. But at least Matt and I knew it wouldn't be long before we had a place of us own." - Dolly Skilbeck (see notes)
