Their youngest son, Nigel, having just left home for university, Arthur and Beryl Crabtree (well, mainly Arthur) are looking forward to a quiet life at their own pace, taking care of themselves rather than all of their offspring for once! But no sooner has Nigel gone, when all three children trickle back to the family nest.
