The school summer holidays! Happy Monday turned into a picnic in Epping Forest when Louisa, Julian, Tove and Harper joined us. And, of course, we had Esme as well as Rocco. Then we had a call from Danaë’s friend Eleanor, over from Switzerland, and she and Annabel and Harriet came too!
We had our picnic at the pond at the bottom of Staples Road which overflowed in a flash storm and caused the famous flood of 1982 when the High Road was under water. This reservoir was also a favourite haunt of Thom and his friends.
