Further details

Mum Kim has burnt her nurse uniform, dad Dave can't understand the wage slip from his driving job, and son Max is missing school again to look after his daughter, Poppy.

With Dave pondering a career move to Iraq, no money left in the money-jar and an unfinished house extension, it's left to Kim's sister, Jackie, to suggest a simple plan to sort things out. Also on hand is fellow chauffeur Terry with his own free life-tutoring course and a less than helpful view on everything.

With the car playing up and dog, baby and son in tow, Kim calls in the cavalry before outsource providers, Buccaneer 2000 ("we care about your healthcare") can find out and dock her pay.
