Life on the Neonatal Ward, plus Dairy Farm and the Chapel, Ipswich and Thrandeston, Suffolk - 26th August 2005

Claire and Paul's sprog arrived two months early, and so is ensconced in the the special-care neonatal ward at Ipswich Hospital. Nosher has never been to such a place, and so when the opportunity arrived to a) offer a lift and b) see what it was all about, it couldn't be missed as it's a fascinating insight into life -2 months. Before that, there are some post-pub photos of the phone box on the A140, just up from the Swan - before the rozzers swing by to see what suspicious activity is occuring. Then, The Boy Phil is moving bales around, then we wander around to visit the old chapel and see the cows up at Dairy Farm
