Photographed 17th May 2020 - 56 days into lockdown
When and how did Covid enter your day to day world?
We started isolating 1 week before lockdown as my daughter had a mild cough.
What is the biggest way the lockdown has changed your day to day life?
A slower pace of life, better food planning and more tech!
What moment in Covid ‘life’ stands out for you / do you think you will always remember?
The kindness of friends (and strangers), the rare and cherished opportunities to see family and Steve's lockdown moustaches and changing persona (from Freddie Mercury to Wyatt Earp to Poirot).
What have been the good things about this period?
More time and less travel, time for family, gardening and clearing out, being creative, the girls learning new skills from hairdressing to cooking and supporting small/ local food businesses.
What have been the most painful aspects of this period?
Worry about our family and friends, home schooling!, witnessing the sheer enormity of the crisis and the terrible pain and loss suffered by others.
What will you take from this time going forward?
Slow down, cherish what is important and remember what isn't.
Is there anything else about lockdown you would like to add?
We felt so lucky to live in Heydon at this time surrounded by beautiful countryside and with the space to roam. Also amazed at the collective spirit and determination to adapt to the new reality.
