If We Were Having Coffee | June Picnics

If we were having a coffee, it would probably be part of a ‘socially distanced’ picnic in London, because that was absolutely the highlight of June. Well, if I’m honest, March and April as well really. We lost our little Biscuit this month, and she has left a Tabby shaped hole in our hearts. June 2020 will always make me think of paint fumes.
