Everything We're Reading, Making And Learning In Lockdown

This week we catch up with Boudavida's founder, Anabel Sexton, to discover her favourite activities, books and sport that have kept her feeling motivated and inspired all through lockdown.


I am a bit of a compulsive reader. Currently, I’m reading Crime & Punishment by Dostoyevsky for my book club, but in between I have read a couple of memorable books such as Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, and The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys.

Practising Golf

Sometimes it feels great just to hit balls!

Growing Vegetables and Herbs

I've never been particularly green-fingered, but the extra time at home has given me the time to experiment. I am particularly proud of the herbs I have grown as I love using them in my cooking.

Long Walks

I am fortunate enough to live in deepest Somerset surrounded by beautiful countryside, so just going for a walk is a real treat. There is one particular loop which I love that takes about two hours and goes through the middle of the Glastonbury Festival site.

Watching the Sun Go Down

There have been some fantastic sunsets recently, and I have loved sitting with my family around our new fire pit at the end of the day and watching the sky turn red as the sun goes down.
