Five Loafy Things for Summer

Posted August 13th, 2020

Long summer days call for laid-back larks. Here are five bright ideas for things to do without breaking a sweat:

Go for a ramble

Getting lost is half the fun when it comes to a real ramble. And if you find a pub to stop at on the way, all the better. For a little guidance we love Go Jauntly.

Become a bookworm

Step away from the screens, find a cosy nook and settle in. Right now we're reading The Oak Papers by James Canton, a lovely book about nature and the art of slowing down.

Watch paint dry

Our Ben Lowe uses memories of childhood to inspire his nostalgic prints. Why not find an old photo album and have a go? If in doubt, call it abstract.

Forage for your supper

Try your weekly food shop al fresco with the Idler Academy's online foraging course for beginners, led by the godfather of gardens, Roger Phillips.
