Lynne's rich mother has either just arrived at short notice or is arriving imminently having only told her daughter this morning she was coming. Lynne is frantically hoovering a side table and dusting a bookcase so to look as though they keep their house clean. She is in such a hurry that hasn't even had time to get properly dressed yet. Let's hope Lynne's mother hasn't already arrived as there could be an awkward moment if she comes downstairs now.
We learnt before that Lynne's mother is not rich herself, but has recently married a billionaire. Lynne has yet to see any of this money and Lynne's mother seems to be one of those nouveau riche people who will suddenly become very demanding, forgetting her lower middle class roots. The story of Lynne's father on the other hand is a mystery. Did they divorce? Did he die? We just don't know. Whichever it is, Lynne's mother is certainly not the woman he married.
No Lynne, it does not. She probably has a gardener.
