The Provincial Lady (known very rarely by her Christian name, Elizabeth) recounts in her diary the everyday, the ordinary and the small dramas and events that make the life of a lady of leisure decidedly hard work.
There are her children Robin and Vicky who aren't content to suffer colds but develop the socially unacceptable pink eye, common among East End juveniles. Husband Robert is buried behind 'The Times' oblivious to the general instability of the domestic staff, the extremely sensitive French nanny and the customary unsatisfactory financial situation in which Elizabeth often finds herself.
And there is always Lady Boxe to make a bad situation even worse. Her bulbs are bigger, her clothes better, she goes on more exotic holidays and is the first in the district to own a car. Then suddenly an invitation to the South of France beckons and, for a few weeks at least, the Provincial Lady is her own mistress.
