  1. What have you done differently compared to the first lockdown?
    Better structure, more exercise (except when I had COVID just after Christmas!) More Netflix with the family. A bit less optimism about exactly when this will all be over…
  2. Did you keep up the hobbies you picked up in lockdown 1? E.g. walking every day, instruments etc.
    Have maintained TKD and yoga – and tennis when it was still allowed. And have started a ‘Couch to 5k’ with one of my daughters.
  3. How has lockdown changed the way you look at your life?
    I will never again take for granted even the little things. The freedom to safely go and see family, or play group sport and see mates. The ability to see colleagues and clients face to face. The ability to travel. Even the prospect of going to see family an hour or 2 away in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire now seems exciting…
  4. If you weren’t in lockdown right now, where would you like to be?
    With my mum. She could so with some extra hugs right now
  5. If you were to arrange an online dinner party who would you add to your guest list? (This could include people you know or people you don’t know).
    Louis Theroux
    Lily James
    Billy Connolly
    The Obamas
    David Attenborough
  6. What is your favourite self-care routine you do when you need a pick me up in lockdown?
    Go for a run before work. Then, by comparison, work doesn’t seem so bad…..
  7. What is your most memorable work moment during lockdown?
    Any team Zoom call which involves people sharing classic photos of colleagues (HB)…
  8. Who or what has an inspired you over the past 11 months?
    Single parents.
  9. What is your top TV watch recommendation?
    Ozark.
  10. If you could be an animal, which animal would it be and why?
    An otter: a great mixture of fun in the water, and lazing around.
