The Simple Things - - CONTENT - ED­I­TOR LISA SYKES #mysim­plething

is the slow­est month, a chance to recharge. At home there are early fin­ishes and af­ter­noons spent idling, while be­ing away brings its own r& r. A river pic­nic is some­thing to savour – pick­ing black­ber­ries and eat­ing ice-cream, too. Long car trips are rarely a plea­sure but here also is a chance to em­brace slow: leav­ing the mo­tor­way to ex­plore, play­ing silly car games, or driv­ing a cam­per van just for the joy of it. Savour­ing sum­mer can in­volve mak­ing a jour­ney in more ways than one.
