Jess, Charne and I ventured to the other side of the city and went for a picnic in Battersea Park. The weather the last few days has been fantastic- no need for a coat or scarf! We sat in the sun having our picnic and enjoying the start of spring. After our picnic, we spent a few hours walking around the park.
