January Misc: New Year, Suffolk - 6th January 2009

It's the first round-up of the new year. Talking of which, it kicks off with Marc, Sue and The Boy Phil around Nosher and Isobel's for a slap-up Indian feed-fest. After this, we head up for a couple of beers at the Swan, to take us over in to 2009. Then, we're in Diss for the "Saturday Sausage", and get a couple of pics of Diss Woolworths - shortly before the legendary shop chain disappears for ever. Then, there's a walk around the nearby fields, and Fred starts to play the piano (at only 3 months - how precocious, huh?)
