When Eileen Dodds sent her husband out to get a portion of chips and two pickled eggs, she never suspected he would run off with the shop owner and not be seen for five years - but that's exactly what happened! Thirty years later, Eileen has decided to take her life back into her own hands, and much to the surprise of her daughters, Jackie and Tracy, she has returned from a holiday with Raymond, a blind bingo ball caller, who she intends to marry in a week's time! But is Raymond only after her money? And will Eileen ever find true happiness?
