The Distancing Diaries - 8th & 9th March, 2021


 On Monday, after my first Wii Fit workout of the week, I switched the TV over to the weather forecast. As torrential rain was expected for most of the week I emptied the contents of the laundry basket into the washing machine and pegged everything outside on the line. I'd just caught up with blogland when Jon came downstairs and joined me for breakfast.


Jon did the post office run and a top-up grocery shop whilst I sorted out the Cupboard of Doom although it's probably going against the Trade Descriptions Act to call it that these days as it's been pretty tidy since lockdown - and my fondness for housework - started last March. I shifted the last bag of festival stock to the Kinky Shed, making more room for our litter picking gear, then swept and mopped the floor.

Once Jon had unpacked and sanitised the shopping it was time for lunch, spicy carrot and parsnip soup with a couple of slices of Ray's delicious sour dough bread. 

We went to the local garden centre to stock up on topsoil and to have another look at the half price pots. I was very restrained in just buying two. Back at home Jon set to work filling the raised beds with soil and I repotted our cheeseplant. The huge embossed white pot will house my olive tree which I was planning on doing when I got back but a sudden blast of rain had me abandoning my intentions and scurrying up the garden to rescue the washing from the line.


Before I brought my cheeseplant back inside I scrubbed the fireplace and washed the vintage glass on the mantelpiece.


Wear:Sleep:Repeat saw another outing for my embroidered birthday dress, this time topped with the 1980s Anokhi jacket I'd bought from eBay last week. It was another cold day hence the Mongolian lamb scarf (jumble sale, 2007), beer mittens and a me-made pompom hat. 

Here's my jacket without me in it. Anokhi used woven red labels in the 1980s. Back then a UK size 12 had a 34" bust and 24" waist, not modern size 12 with a 36" bust and 29" waist. Anokhi garments of all eras have French seams (not overlocked ones) and the prints are always beautifully aligned. 

The details: Mum's vintage Biba boots, Indian chandelier earrings (gift from a friend), 1960s fringed suede shoulder bag (charity clearance shop)


In my last post Beth had enquired about how I keep my suede clean. My secret weapon is this cleaning block, it's a bit like an eraser, you rub it gently on any marks and they'll usually disappear. I knew that I'd had it a while but when I checked the box discovered that it was made in West Germany. It deserves a starring role in Deutschland 89. I have checked online and you can buy similar. In the past I've had some success by washing suede clothes in the machine (on a 20°C wash) and hanging them to dry away from direct heat.

The rest of the afternoon was spent crocheting. I loved the muted tones of this "Cotswold" wool.

Tea was spaghetti with Jon's homemade tomato sauce with purple sprouting broccoli harvested from the garden, basil leaves from the plant I grew from seed last year and some grated Cheddar. We'd started watching the archaelogical documentary series Raiders of The Lost Past the previous evening (The Minataur's Palace) and continued with the other two episodes (The Viking Ship & The World's First City). I'd been looking forward to Unforgotten all week but it had been postponed while ITV aired that interview, which neither of us had any interest in. 

On Tuesday, after my Wii Fit session, I put away the previous day's laundry and caught up with Blogland. After breakfast I sat at the kitchen table and rehemmed my quilted housecoat and then dragged out my desk and swept the floor, pipes and radiator behind it.


Jon popped back to the garden centre for another few bags of topsoil while it was still on offer. I browsed Ebay and bought a vintage block printed skirt I didn't really need but was at a Buy-it-Now price too good to miss. 

Wear:Sleep:Repeat saw another outing for my 1980s Anokhi jacket, this time worn belted with a Banjara mirrorwork skirt I'd bought from Katy back in 2019. It was a gloriously sunny day, hence the massive sunglasses.


The details: Jennifer Lopez for Guess woven belt (charity shop), fake snakeskin boots (Urban Outfitters sale), Vintage Tropical sunglasses (eBay), disco ball earrings (handmade by ex-blogger Tamera), enormous coin choker (from Cheryl)

Jon had a busy day in the garden, filling the raised beds and planting seeds in both them and the greenhouse, not very helpfully assisted by Frank who decided to scale the greenhouse and wobble around precariously on the roof. Today Jon's planted rocket, Greek gigantes beans, two varieties of carrot, parsnips, cauliflower and red cabbage.

Meanwhile I photographed some stock in the garden and listed it on eBay. Tony called to say that he's booked in for his jab next Tuesday - he was 55 in February, a few months older than us, which means that it won't be long now!

After a break for noodles we went on a block walk combined with a litter pick and, can you believe it? After weeks of filling a sack each, this was the sum total of today's efforts. With the schools going back yesterday it just goes to show who is responsible for all the littering.


I'd only got a couple of chapters left of current read, The Retribution, so I had a lazy half hour on the chaise reading. It's now on Jon's to-read pile and I've found A Delicate Truth by John le Carré to start later.


Tea was a Morrison's nut roast stuffed with four cheeses, mushy peas and chips.  



The Wear:Sleep:Repeat challenge has spread to two collages, I was struggling to see the tiny icons!

Tonight we'll be watching Interior Design Masters and the last night's postponed episode of Unforgotten (Sanjeev Baskar is married to a Walsall girl, the actress & author, Meera Syal, we went to the same school).

See you soon!

    1. I always tell customers to take a couple of sizes off the original sizes in labels as they get a bit upset when they can't get into their usual size. The 1960s waist sizes are really tiny (pre-Pill, pre-McDonalds!) xxx

  7. Definitely have pot envy. I'll love to see the tree in the large one. What do they call the changing sizes-vanity sizing? I just need clothes to fit me comfortable, but I know people will stress about what size they wear.

  8. I didn't watch that interview either, I knew it would be all over the news on Monday morning. For the life of me, I can't figure out why my fellow Americans are obsessed with the British Royal family. You did good, I would have wanted 6-7 of those pots.

    1. I think more Americans are interested in the Royal family than Brits. The only tme I've been interested is when one of them marries and we get a bank holiday although I'd rather watch paint dry than a wedding!

  10. The jacket is really nice it suits you ! Mum and dad were on the phone yesterday doing their garden and they saw a mouse, mum darted back in and promptly shut all the doors and windows! I did tell them that they do live close to the countryside and this is what happens, she saw a vole and tried to hit it with a spade a couple of years go!
    Love the pots some of mine need repotting but when I do it I always make them sad and then kill them!!

  11. Lovely pots and it's interesting to see what Jon is planting up. The jacket is pretty - the info you give about your own finds (sizing, authentic labelling etc) is always helpful in my own chazza/ebay searches :) and the info on cleaning suede is helpful too - interesting that you have washed suede - I have been tempted in the past to buy suede skirts or jackets but put off by how to clean them so this was encouraging :)

  12. I could do with a cupboard of doom - we have a lack of storage so everyone seems to just dump stuff in the hallway! I forgot Unforgotten had moved to last night until it had already started so will watch that tonight. Instead we started watching Ben Fogel in Chernobyl which was really interesting. I love your new pots - I could do with replacing one of mine as it has some frost damage. I must look at my seeds as well and maybe even plant some. I almost bought one of those little greenhouses last spring - it was even in my trolley, and then I decided it wasn't necessary and took it out. Course now I regret it.

  14. I love the teal and mustard together in your Monday outfit; in theory I know how to crochet so maybe I'll break out the wool and try a pom-pom hat myself. Either that or you'll need to start selling them. The heather colours you're working on at the moment look so lovely together.
    We were put out to find Unforgotten delayed too, and what for: a load of intrusiveness from which none of the parties will emerge looking good which will be plaguing news bulletins for the next month and getting in the way of real news. Pahh!
    We have been browsing around Walter a bit and started watching Professor T, a quirky German series which is at times very silly and at others very dark... quite Sherlockian as well, flawed genius and all that. I think it's worth a try and you'd know pretty quickly if you were going to take to it or not.
    The black and white pot is very smart and just what I would go for, but like all my other pots my very naughty dog would probably knock it over. He doesn't like new things being introduced to 'his' garden and tips them over to investigate as soon as we take our eyes off him - that's the advantage of cats and a tortoise; not big enough to unseat a ceramic pot!

    1. Hello Fifitr! That Youtube tutorial I posted the other day is brilliant (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgUVj9b-xFI), you should have a go. I loved those heathery colours, they reminded me of the gardens at Hidcote.
      You share my sentiments about "that" interview. I was glad in the end that Unforgotten was postponed as I was struggling to keep my eyes open after 9.30pm on Monday night so I managed to stay awake throughout.
      I haven't seen Professor T, that sounds like it might be worth investigating. Thansk for that.
      What a naughty dog! Cats will just look at something disdainfully and glace at us with a look that says "You wasted your money on THAT?" xxx

I suppose as we've been self-employed & based at home for 15 years we've pretty good at organising oursleves although a certain someone who shall remain nameless was still in his PJs at 10.45 this morning!

  16. Thanks for steering me toward the suede cleaning product, Vix. I shall look for it online when shopping for ye olde museum fabric washing powders. Our local historical society is gearing up to refurbish some exhibits, and I've got dibs on the ancient undies. I was heard to mutter, "Vix would probably wear this camisole...", and had to explain myself.
    What a glorious selection of big pots! My hard-necked German garlic has overwintered in a terra cotta pot that split like a melon. I've raffia-wrapped it together until the garlic is harvested: a glazed ceramic pot would be an ideal replacement!

  17. I love the embossed white pot. We put our olive into the soil, we had to break it out of its pot, that was two years ago and its taller than me now. I love getting new garden pots.

  20. Wonderful pots! And the raised beds planted full of goodies. Jon sounds like my OH always popping out for sacks of compost and logs for the fire; usually to B&M. I joke he must have shares in the company.

    I love your new Anokhi jacket it looks like it was made for your birthday dress; they do look fabulous together. Cheryl's coin choker was amazing. I also loved the jacket belted; it does give a different look.

    We were shocked not to see 'Unforgotten' on Monday; and I guessed the reason why. We assumed we would have to wait until next week to see it, so imagine how pleased we were to spot it was on Tuesday instead.

    The wool has such lovely soft colours in it - very Scottish moorland...

    Take care

  21. I think you've sent that torrential rain our way, as it starting pelting down, with a gale force wind, about an hour ago! I'm truly impressed at the tidiness of the former Cupboard of Doom, and your fondness for housework does rather puts me to shame. Love your choice of pots!
    Your new Anokhi jacket looks magnificent worn over your birthday dress, and I love the matching of your scarf/beer mittens and pom pom hat/fringed bag. It does look equally stunning belted over your Banjara mirrorwork skirt!

  22. I love your new jacket with your embroidery dress, superb match, like they were made to go together! Love your new pots, and spring is almost here!Being here in the USA I didn't watch the "interview" either, I don't watch the interviewer, and knew personal, family questions would be asked and spread all over the world. Now, like your friends say....it is actually plugging the internet and our television channels,daily, just way too many other healthy things to focus on!!I have never eaten a nutroast stuffed with cheese, it sure looks delicious! Schools are opening up around here, also, and some restaurants are open and taverns, but I am still hesitant about not social distancing, so I am still laying low!Better safe than sorry, and I have tons of things to do here at home> Your litter picking up is sure paying off, that is wonderful!!Stay safe like you are!

    1. Thanks, Chrystal! I loved how the embroidery on the dress seemed to pick out the colours in the jacket. We've had storms for the last 24 hours but I've spotted lots of signs of new growth on our walk today and listening to the birds singing Spring is within touching distance.
      I'm not particularly interested in the royals and agree with you, it would have been an uncomfortable watch. I watch TV to be entertained or educated, that interview would have been neither.
      We've got a while before pubs and restaurants are allowed to reopen, I think they're seeing what happens with the schools first but I'm in no rush to visit them - I'd rather socially distance until everyone eligible gets their vaccine. There's plenty to do at home.

    Glad to see the litterbugs have gone back to school and made your job easier! I'm excited for you to get your jab (I've been calling it that here now, trying to make it a "thing", lol). My mom will get hers in the next month or so, and L and I hopefully in June.

  24. More Anokhi lovelies! Looking fabulous as always, Vix. I was going to do a pick today but the wind is absolutely roaring here - so I think me and my bag might paraglide over the hedges lol.

    Lovely to hear so many people are moving nearer to getting jabbed. My mister is feeling a bit under the weather after his - while I am feeling as usual. I think that men can react very differently - their immune systems are different from women's after all - we have a stronger immune response (it's a genetic thing). It should pass quickly according to the info supplied - we both had the Astra Zenica one.

    Your pots are fab - we mucked out our greenhouse this week to see what had survived over winter and to repot our tree lilies with fresh compost (3 big bags for £9 from Sainsburys for the fancy stuff with plant food in it!). Can't wait until our local plant nursery can open agsin! I did wonder how the greenhouse would stand up to the wind (we have a smaller version of yours) - but it is tucked behind a wall and is fine so far - yay!

    Car has gone in for it's MOT with some work needed - but not as scary as it sounded lol. We sorted out a couple of advisories ourself so it's just a matter of them getting on with it and picking it up later. Fairly standard stuff for an older car/wear and tear.

    I am absolutely jiggered (we're having a fairly stressful family time at the mo) - it will pass I know, but - COME ON Spring - I'm ready!!

    Did you get your copy of Loved Clothes Last yet? Preaching to the choir - but still, lots to digest and think about. Nicely written and perfect for dipping in and out of so far.

    Right, I'm off - take care all - big love to you and make a nice lunch, Maryland xx

    1. Hello, Elaine! We left the picking stuff at home this morning, I had visions of the wind taking me and my bag off to the other side of Wolverhampton! Did you see the feature on community litter picking volunteers on BBC Breakfast this morning? We're "on trend" for the first time in our lives!
      Hope the Mr is starting to feel better. Jon always gets everything worse than me. When he had his flu jab he had a day on the settee with a dead arm whereas I didn't even feel it. I'm thrilled that you're both jabbed though...normality beckons.
      Ta for the Sainsbury's tip, Tony shops there, we'll get him on the case. Jon was up in the night checking on the greenhouse but after years of pitching tents I think it'll probably outlive us.
      I'm sorry things are a bit stressful and that the family problems can be overcome without having to resort to Oprah and prime time TV.
      I've only had a cursory flick through of Loved Clothes Last. I might have an hour on the chaise tomorrow, no doubt nodding in agreement with her words of wisdom.

  28. I love pots!!! I am really regretting the stupid wooden planter that CBC bought me for my birthday. It was SO expensive and we picked it up today and it is just basically lumps of wood that look ugly. Not how they looked in the catalogue. Wish I'd just bought some pots instead. Would take less earth and look prettier.
    Sigh.
    It doesn't surprise me about the litter. Teenagers make me really cross.
    I've still not read any Le Carre- we have a few around the house so I must!
    Interesting to read about that Suede block. Great that it has lasted so well!
    The Anokhi jacket is really pretty and you see the quality instantly! Good to know about the labels too!
    Seeing the greenhouse and sowing seeds always excites me! I saw some little versions of the greenhouse today and wanted one but CBC wasn't keen. Pity!

    Do you think that a litter free area subliminally deters people from dropping more? A bit like the broken window theory?
