The Distancing Diaries - 19th & 20th November, 2020


Thursday had looked like being the driest (but coldest) day of the week weather-wise, hence the reason I'd booked our National Trust excursion for then but, after I'd done my Wii Fit workout and Jon had joined me for breakfast, the skies turned as dark as night and torrential rain was bouncing off the paving stones. Despite this we wrapped up, packed sandwiches and set off down the M6 to Baddesley Clinton, the moated manor house that had remained home to the same family, The Ferrers, for over 500 years.

As luck would have it we'd left the rain back in Walsall and Baddesley Clinton remained dry throughout our visit.


You might remember our last visit back in July HERE. Back then the garden had been under the sole care of Lucy, the head gardener, due to lockdown. Now back at its full compliment of four staff, the grounds were immaculate, swept clean of leaves and with plenty of colour still in the borders.







It was the coldest day of the season so far and we were well wrapped up. Lord Jon wore his Diesel waxed jacket and super cosy fleece lined boots along with a burnt orange wool bobble hat, all charity shop finds.


I did wonder if I was foolish not to have worn my wellies but the ground was surprisingly mud-free so my mum's fleece-lined original Biba boots were just fine.






This time we remembered to bring some stale bread with us and Jon revered to childhood by feeding the ducks and geese, something he hadn't done since he was about 8!









The car park was rammed but, as usual, everyone followed the social distancing guidelines and keep at least two metres away. Nobody ever tries to overtake or push past and people are always happy to stand and wait if you want to take photos. The National Trust attracts the nicest folk. 



Even on a cold and grey November day Baddesley Clinton is beautiful. We felt alive and invigorated after our bracing woodland walk, eating our picnic in the van and then heading back to Walsall. It was odd driving through the town of Shirley on the way home with almost all the shops closed and the normally bustling streets deserted. It's easy to forget there's a lockdown when we spend almost all of our days at home.





Back home, after a coffee in the shelter with the lads, I wrapped up my ebay sales parcels and Jon nipped down to the post office with them. 


Here's what I wore for my National Trust visit. The Whistles velvet scarf was 99p from a charity shop five years ago, back at home when I researched it I discovered it was still in store and retailed at £99! The vintage Phool suit was an IG buy, I rarely wear both pieces together. The riding jacket was from Anokhi from their flagship store in Jaipur back in 2018, it's the most I've ever spent on a garment and it gets complimented wherever I go. 


Tea was a few oven chips with salad, plaka gigantes and some spicy quinoa. Later we watched Spooks (just for a change!) and I left some plants in the bath overnight to soak.


On Friday morning I booked next week's National Trust adventure before my final Wii Fit workout of the week. When I stepped on the board it told me that it was our 4000th session! Doesn't time fly?


Jon got up just as I'd finished my plant watering and swapping around session. After breakfast I caught up with blogland and watched a crochet tutorial on YouTube for my next project. Confident that I was up to the task I ordered wool from Shaws Direct. In normal times I buy it from their shop in West Bromwich, currently closed due to the lockdown. At least I can still support this fab family business. 


Today's outfit is the off-white version of the 1970s Ayesha Davar blouse I was wearing on my last blog post and a vintage Anokhi maxi skirt with a quilted hem (both eBay). By coincidence my Phool waistcoat matches the suit I wore yesterday and was bought from Eyewood Vintage at Vintage Village in Stockport a few years ago. I think wearing a block printed three piece suit might be a step too far, even for me!


Back in the days BC (before Covid) it was easy to fritter £5 away a day in charity shops, the odd garment that would do for workout sessions, travelling or gardening, quirky bits for the house, might-be-useful homewares or pieces of fabric with potential. Only visiting the clearance shop once a week - and not at all in the past three weeks - and my purchases are fewer and more discerning, like these Lotta from Stockholm clogs bagged for the bargain price of £15 from eBay a fortnight ago. 


 Jon had a to-do list to plough through which included a grocery/cat food run, popping Frank round to the vet for a check-up, paying the joiner's bill and fitting some magnetic closure strips to the kitchen cupboard. Last week Mark & Keith brought it to our attention that the mortar on the brickwork outside the bedroom window had perished and was leaching water into the house. Jon called our retired brickie pal Dave who popped round to assess the damage and said that he'd fix it on Saturday (tomorrow) if we could find some ladders long enough. Jon did some ringing around and discovered Liz & Al had a set, which Al offered to pop round later - at a safe Covid-free distance, of course! The joy of old houses, there's always something that needs fixing.


On a  brighter note lovely Elaine (visit her website HERE) sent me a parcel of joy, a sensational length of Indian batik cotton featuring peacocks and an amazing East Bollywood motif top which will be repurposed into something else. I can't work out who the actress is, I need to do my homework. Also included was a postcard featuring some of her beautiful artwork, Glencoe.


Lunch was a Ginster's vegan Moroccan pasty, it was delicious!


A damp, grey and cold day like today isn't the most conducive to productivity. I managed to fill the afternoon by pottering about in the bathroom, polishing mirrors and dusting picture frames in between some blog reading and a bit of paperwork.



Tea was posh pizza with sweet potato wedges and a bottle of beer. The alcohol consumption will continue with rum shortly and, no doubt, more Spooks. We've nearly finished watching all ten series now.



Stay safe and see you soon!

  2. That is a lovely manor house. I can't imagine a house with a moat, but love all the bridges. I always wanted an older home but husband had to help his dad renovate the 150 old house they bought when he moved to our current city, and said never, which is why we have a 1987 model, though perfectly fine home. I bet my kids go the older house route. Your bathroom is gorgeous-quite fitting for you to pamper. I plan to do some sprucing of our bathrooms.

    1. It's a miracle that the house never gets damp or floods, isn't it? The Brits certainly knew how to build things to last back then.
      Some people absolutely love all the work that an old house generates, I don't blame your husband for wanting a modern house. The first house I bought was 20 years old, it was a tiny thing and all I could afford but as I'd never lived in a new house before I loved how warm it was! xxx

  4. That is a lovely old house. I like your hat I have one similar (synthetic fur), you both looked so well dressed on your day out and it's incredible that Jon is modelling such lovely things all from a charity shop ... and what a superb find those cloggs are - would never have thought to wear them with thick tights but it works really well :) Lovely pressies from your friend.

  9. It doesn’t matter what time you go to a place it always looks beautiful. I decided to walk through yoyogi park for a change on my way to work and I saw the groundmen hand sweeping the leaves no electrical blowers here. There brooms are a work of art and hand made. I always stop and talk to the oldest one as he is the friendliest one. We talked about how quiet it’s been but they have been able to get a lot more work done which is nice.
    This park reminds me of Hyde park except you cannot ride bikes and you must be respectful to each other. It’s a beautiful place and there lots of off shoot seasonal gardens which are stunning and then the shrine in the middle the best part for me.
    I always think vix and Jon would love this place . We had a lazy day yesterday, I even digged out the old bread maker and made some seeded loaves. They didn’t last long. Love the scarf. I love a good scarf!!! no wonder shops go bust if they charge that. Take care and keep safe love and huggs allie

    1. Hello Allie! I thought Baddesley Clinton would look rather bleak now all the leaves are down but it was just lovely, still so much colour.
      Those council blowers they use here as horrible, the racket! I bet the sweepers in japan are like the malis we see in India, they use handmade brooms too and go about their work in such a graceful way it's like poetry! They use one hand to sweep and place the other hand in the small of their back, palm facing outwards. I've tried it at home and it doesn't half give your abs a workout!
      Your park sounds lovely, no bikes and lots of respect. Here it's lagered up yoofs in grey joggers swearing!
      Well done on the bread making, you domestic goddess! xxx

  14. I find it really interesting to see the same properties in different seasons. I used to live near Clumber Park and went every couple of weeks, especially in the Autumn, to see the changing trees in the arboretum (easily entertained!) More revisits to your summer haunts, please.

    I started watching the rerun of Spooks but was so traumatised by the end of season 2/start of season 3 that I've parked it and am just accumulating recordings at the moment. Knowing what's going to happen doesn't help with the tension one bit, I find. If anything it makes it worse. I will get round to it but I've been making inroads into a boxed set of Oz instead and was recently given a DVD of Fassbinder's mammoth German TV series Berlin Alexanderplatz, which I haven't seen since I was about 20. I thought I would be running out of things to do by now but the list just seems to keep getting longer.

    Our last house was Georgian and on moving in without a mortgage we congratulated ourselves on all the money we'd save. Inevitably the repair and maintenance bills came to way more than we had been paying on the mortgage - every time you have a good look you spot something that's rotting or peeling or sinking or going moldy. Thank goodness you have friends who can help out.

    I am covetous of your fur hat. I have always wanted one like that but have such a big head women's sizes won't fit, and men's fur hats seem to be much less interesting. Plus there aren't many places you can go to try on hats these days. I remember when all department stores worth their salt had huge hat departments (and fur departments for that matter) where my grandmother would ceremoniously purchase hats for weddings and funerals, attended like a queen by the sales handmaidens. It all seemed very grand to my 7 year old self.

    Good luck with the bricks!

    1. I read your comment and also have a "gigantic noggin"! I make many of my own hats, but my recommendation is to shop for men's hats to help with the issue.

    2. Hello Fifitr! Clumber Park looks gorgeous. I love seeing the seasonal differences in the gardens and we're trying our hardest to get back to all the ones we visited in the Summer.
      I know what you mean about the trauma of Spooks and it's almost too painful to watch at times, the Lucas North episodes in particular. We've only got a handful left now and I'm looking forward to catching up with BBC4's DNA and Steve McQueen's Small Axe series next week. I've just looked up Oz and Berlin Alexanderplatz and they both look very much our thing. Thanks for mentioning them, I shall see if Jon can get his mitts on either of them.
      My head's quite a whopper, most vintage hats perch on the top of my head and make me look like Ken Dodd. The sheepskin ones have a bit more give although I usually have a huge crease on my forehead when I take it off which takes hours to fade (not a good look when I wear it to the pub!)
      Brickwork done - phew! Not as bad a job as we feared! xxx

  15. How lovely to revisit Baddesley Clinton with you. How gorgeous the gardens still look this late in the season. Both you and Lord Jon were dressed perfectly for the occasion. Your vintage Phool suit worn with the Anokhi riding jacket, velvet scarf and your Mum'd Biba boots is an absolute triumph. And then I didn't even mention your marvellous hat!
    Your new Lottas were a steal, and I love how you're wearing them with those wonderful socks!

    The weather looks soooo cold on your visit to the Trust estate -- I must ask, if it was raining so hard, where was the "bus nutter" mac?!

    You look more beautiful than ever -- a gorgeous shade of lippie! We have the same coloring, so I must ask, is that Barry M? What shade in the photo with the fur hat outside on the bridge? Inquiring minds!

    So glad that you are well. :)

  23. What a beautiful property, the gardens are lovely. I had another view at your June visit post and isn't it amazing how neat the garden was back then, taken that it was maintained only by the head gardener (Lucy, is it?). Nice that the property is fully staffed now, it must have been exhausting for her having to do it all by herself. Baddesley Clinton is a beautiful place for sure and how lovely that it has belonged to the same family for generations. Your outfit for visiting this National Trust treasure is both sensible and beautiful. Those boots are so pretty. I also love your Lotta glogs and how you wore them with those cute socks.
