Fondue, Housewarmings and The Sock (An Epilogue) - 29th-30th September 2006

There's a genuine Swiss fondue courtesy of "Bus Stop" Rachael and Sam, who live in the upstairs flat at Kingston Street in Cambridge, followed by photos of one of the Kingston Street spiders in action. Then, the day after in Diss, it's Jen and Simon's house-warming thrash in their new pad on the edge of Diss, in an estate I'd previously referred to as Bleak House (I was obviously feeling a bit gloomy on that particular day). Interspersed with these are a few photos of Isobel picking walnuts in the garden with the help of Cat A - Soph-Bags, and the last-ever photos of Cat B - The Sock (1994-2006) - the coolest cat that ever lived.
