Pro Landscaper’s Lockdown Little Interview
Elaine Bailey, Elaine Bailey Garden Design
So you’re self-isolating…who’s your favourite person to be locked up with? My husband or my dog – hard to choose.
Name one thing that’s changed about your daily routine that you’re going to take forward after lockdown’s over? Exercising at home! So easy! No faff!
How many cups of tea/coffee are you now drinking per day? Double the previous amount which was already a lot.
Best new Netflix/boxset series or book you’ve discovered? Big Little Lies, The Night Manager.
What do you miss most about life before lockdown? I miss thinking that Brexit was the biggest problem we had in this country!
DIY vs gardening – which wins? Gardening obviously!!!!
What time is wine o’clock? There’s a time limit?
When working from home is your background choice radio/tv/silence? Radio 4 or silence.
In hindsight, what would you have prepared in advance (ie food/diy products etc)? I would have checked my garden shed for bamboo canes – I have bean seeds ready to go but nothing to grow them up. Also, would have put in a massive order to Hotel Chocolat.
Is the government doing a good job of keeping you informed? As far as is possible I think the government is doing its best. As long as they are following best scientific advice, leaving politics aside and briefing the nation in a factual way, then I’d like to think that they are giving me as much information as is reasonable.
What’s your predicted date for return to normality? Not a clue.
Best new follow on social media? Trying to avoid it – too full of scaremongering.
