From the buzz and the busyness of the city to the peace and calm of
Polesden Lacey. A perfect example of late Georgian grace and grandeur, it's been a favourite of mine since I first visited as a child.
Earlier this year Mr A's father was staying with us for a few days, so we took him there for a surprise day out. And what a surprise! He'd been evacuated to Surrey during the war and had been the paper boy for 'the big house!'
A day of happy memories (and the sun shone, too.)
