Really enjoying Coalhouse at War. I love the Paisey family. Poor dad, Stephen, being sent down a mine. He is so good humoured and upbeat about everything that happens. Similarly Natalie, who poor thing has to stay at home all day and keep a semblance of order whilst coping with four young children on war rations and without any mod cons. Life must be hard, what with kids not liking the food and getting dirty all the time- Little Laura getting her shoes stuck in the pig muck! Yet Natalie copes wonderfully. A great series.

Hi Griff and family. I am missing you at school. It's not the same without you. You look like you are having fun especially with all the animals. Whats school like in the 1940's? I don't like the look of that stuff the teachers make you eat. yuck! My mum says she's going to send me to the coal house. Hope you are having a fantastic time. Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. from Mathew

Just wanted to say hello to Natalie and family. You are so adventurous to take on the coal house. It must be a fantastic experience but very hard work with four children. You all seem to have taken to it like ducks to water. Its so lovely to see all the children playing outside together. There seems to be a real spirit of community which we don't get in the modern world. You are all doing so well. Keep up the good work. Lynne

Where can I get that suit, Natalie looks so glamorous with her red lippy and killer look, that fitted suit, that dress at the dance, and pink cardi, she was born to be a 1940's pin up. The children look so happy all playing together, we could do with all our children being able to play out, it's almost paradise, well it would be if it wasn't raining, October, and freezing. Well done all of you.
