The Simple Things Issue 75
Thereʼs an energy that arrives with September; an urge to learn, to make, to
buy but also to restore order after a laissez-faire summer. The satisfaction of a
job well done can cheer up any chore and brings a chance to enjoy favourite
parts of your home at their best. Take time, too, to appreciate the lingering
season before autumn proper. Itʼs a month for outdoor swimming; harvesting
peppers, chillies and tomatoes; long walks and weekends away. Restorative
quiet never felt so good.
RESTORE – favourite rooms & stove pot coffee. Secret railways. Ethical fashion
explained. A weekend in Morocco. Sharing a car boot banquet. What your
handwriting says about you. Night hikes & treasure hunts. Why we love
handmade things. Good newsletters for life. Mindful horoscopes for autumn.

Taking time to live well
The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.
We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.
And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
