Eddie is a lucky man, not only does he have an amazing partner, Michaela, he's a papa of 3 and has another on the way! (I'm sadly missing the baby shower due to being up north in Manchester, coincidently where he is from too.) He's well know for his food/baking, cocktails and love for football in the local community of Tottenham. Lets see how he coped with lockdown...
TELL US ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SET UP
My name is Eddie and I run my own design agency called Lyons & Tigers. My partner is Michaela and my three kids are Felix, Betty and Rita Mae. I would describe my family as a creative force with a love for food, music and art!
HOW DID CORONA VIRUS AFFECT YOU?
Well, I felt blessed that we can be creative as you can and lose yourself in your work which helped with the situation. We also have a garden which needed a lot of love so we worked on that too.
HOW DID YOU COPE WITH THE CHANGE?
Rolled with the punches. Ate good food and had nice drinks! Made my own sourdough bread.
ANY TIPS TO SURVIVE ANOTHER LOCKDOWN? (fingers crossed it won't happen like up north)
I would say the biggest thing is to structure your day. Make an effort with what you wear this will give you a little boost and set you up for the day.
WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THE EXPERIENCE?
That I am lucky to have a nice house and garden. To value my friends and family and to stay positive.
WHAT DID YOU MISS?
I missed my friends, family and football. Also eating out.
TOP THREE THINGS YOU DID TO LIFT THE SPIRITS
Ribeye steak & Triple cooked chips - strawberry Daiquiris - Boiler Room mix by Masio from Del La Soul
WHAT IS THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED IN LOCKDOWN?
Bonded with my daughter Rita Mae 🖤
FIRST THING YOU DID WHEN OUT OF ISOLATION?
