keep life simple

“Take some time this summer to step out of the everyday and enjoy life’s simple pleasures” have this picture in my head of easy summer days – I’m in the garden, chilling out, reading and enjoying a chilled glass of rosé. Or I’m dining al fresco with family and friends, sharing good food and conversation. I’m not answering emails, sending a WhatsApp message or checking Facebook – I’m enjoying the real things in life, not the virtual. It’s for this reason I love our bonus, The art of escapology (p145), about stepping out of the everyday. There are 15 brilliant ideas for you to try, test or simply read and relax with. Enjoy! Or perhaps now is the time to give something back. Discover the joy of volunteering on p68 – four women share…

After all, she’s since baked a cake for the Queen, presented a documentary about Bangladesh, written three books and been named one of the most influential people in Britain. But Nadiya has hardly changed. She tells me about the first time a stranger recognised her in the street. “This guy said, ‘I know you,’ and I looked at him blankly. Then he said, ‘That’s it, you work at H&M!’ and I said, ‘Yes!’ You can hardly say you’re from Bake Off, can you!” It’s clear however that Nadiya’s now a self-assured, quietly confident woman, and she…

‘Summer pleasures are about doing things differently, like reading the papers outside with a fabulously strong cup of coffee’Everyone is in a better mood when the sun’s out As much as I love cuddling up in front of the fire on a cold winter’s night with a bottle of red wine and a box set, I hanker after the long summer evenings.… drinking the palest ice-cold rosé wine, sitting in my garden while the sun sets ever so slowly. Laughing, relaxing, drinking, eating – yes, these are all my favourite things… and sharing them with family and friends is my sweetest summer pleasure. Because everything seems better in the sunshine… and fingers crossed we get a share of that! In the summer you can chuck a lump of meat onto hot coals, burn…
