The Old Chap Vists, and a Night at Amandines, Diss - 1st March 2009

Nosher's Old Chap - granddad to The Boy™ comes over to visit for the weekend. First, however, Nosher and Isobel are over in Linton for a bit of a curry-and-pancake fest. Then, the following Saturday after The Old Man has arrived, we all pile over to Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast, for a spot of Fish'n'Chips (and the de-rigeur spot of queueing that goes with it). The Aldeburgh lifeboat is coming in from excercises as we're walking around on the beach. On Saturday night, whilst the Old Chap watches telly or something, Nosher, Isobel and The Boy go out for the evening at Amandines - a groovy café in Diss - which is hosting one of its dinner and music nights, this time with Nosher's band-mates Rob and Jo (off of the legendary BB's).
