Pro Landscaper’s Lockdown Little Interview
Holly Youde, Urban Landscape Design
You’re self-isolating – who’s your favourite person to be locked up with?
I couldn’t possibly say without either offending the husband or the dog!
One thing that’s changed in daily routine that will continue post-lockdown?
Working from home more – I get so much more done.
How many cups of tea/coffee are you now drinking per day?
Quite a lot less actually.
Best new series or book you’ve discovered?
What do you miss most about pre-lockdown life?
Not second guessing and risk assessing every move!
DIY or gardening?
Have had no time for either.
What time is ‘wine o’clock’?
Usually around 8pm if I fancy it, normally earlier if there is an APL Zoom cluster on!
What is your background noise when working from home?
I like silence actually, but sometimes have the radio on.
In hindsight, what would you have prepared in advance?
A home office in the garden – I’m currently in the kitchen!
Is the government doing a good job of keeping you informed?
To start with, yes; but I guess you have to just look for the info you need and make your own decisions.
What’s your predicted date for returning to normality?
Pretty much back to normal, just with a few extra obstacles to negotiate!
