6. Laze in a hammock
You’ve had a hectic week but now the house is quiet, the sun has warmed the air and you have time to yourself. The hammock is calling. Rock gently back and forth and let time pass you by. Bliss.
7. Catch up on your reading
The TBR (to be read) pile by the side of your bed has grown to such immense proportions you could misplace a child behind it, and your Kindle is rapidly running out of storage. Remedy this sorry state of affairs with dedicated reading time. The long summer evenings are perfect for curling up with a book/e-reader and losing yourself in it before the sun goes down.
8. Enjoy the beach
Release your inner child and build a sandcastle, frolic in the waves or go rock-pooling. Or if being childish is just too energetic, simply lie back and bathe in the sun’s rays.
9. BBQ with friends
Pick up the phone, invite all your friends round, get the drinks in the cooler and light the BBQ. Nothing signals summer like a long evening with friends and the aroma of slightly overdone vegetable kebabs and sausages. Let the fun and laughter begin.
