Unnatural disaster strikes Miss Postern's classroom when Mr Barber spends the night there, but fortunately Mr Church is more than happy to come to her aid.

With Mr Barber now homeless, it falls on the reluctant Mr Gunn to put a roof over his head, but how will his Mum (Michele Dotrice) react to her new house-guest?

Mr Church and Miss Postern discover that sharing with each other doesn't come naturally to either of them, while Mr Gunn learns that sometimes people can share way, way too much.
