Exeter Lockdown Doorstep Photography: Boudicca, Joe, Alfred and Seren

I’ve lived with anxiety and depression throughout my life and I found that in lockdown my usual ‘lifelines’ were no longer available to me – no theatre shows, no live music, no dancing late nights away, no having a good old moan to friends over a meal and wine, no swimming, no spa days… Even the home-based things like long, hot baths or reading a good book have been difficult with the kids around 24/7. I’ve had to rethink all of my positive actions for when I’m feeling my “darkness” descend into things that I could do in lockdown with the whole family around!

Boudicca worked part-time at Age UK Exeter and runs her micro bakery business One Mile Bakery Exeter from her home. During the lockdown, the family have been busy tie-dying t-shirts, baking, crafting, nature watching, planting fruit and creating art.
