Some of our favourite Loafing pastimes include cloud-watching, rambling, baking and doing the crossword. Which is why we love The Idler Academy, with over 70 online courses in everything from meditation to punctuation.

Shoot your answer to [email protected] or pop it on our Facebook page, Twitter feed or Instagram post by the 28th June 2021.
