In August of that year, when her only brother Bernard was rushed to hospital in Birmingham due to a problem with his water works, Mrs Armitage and her husband went to Birmingham for a few days to be by his side. Mrs Armitage arranged with Shirley by phone to leave Lucy with her and Curly, although Shirley didn't consider the arrangements final and was affronted to find her mother had left Lucy with Curly in her absence. On her return to Weatherfield, Mrs Armitage was surprised to be met at the bus station by Lucy alone - Shirley and Curly were unable to meet her as they were looking for Lucy, who had disappeared from the flat when Curly went for a drink with Terry Duckworth. Mrs Armitage brought Lucy to the flat to clear up the misunderstanding and although clearly cross with her daughters, she decided to forgive them.
