A Trip to Thorpeness, and a Norwich Gig, Suffolk and Norfolk - 9th January 2011

Nosher and Isobel get a spur-of-the-moment baby sitter so we could head off to Norwich for a gig at the Norwich Arts Centre. It's the band "The Miserable Rich", as championed by Marc Riley off of BBC 6 Music, and they are most excellent in what is a very intimate gig. As an encore, they unplug and jump off the stage for a couple of numbers with the crowd. Nosher and Isobel are right at the front and so it's like having a personal performance. Magic. The next day, we hook up with Clive and Suzanne for a trip over to Thorpeness on the coast near Sizewell, taking the van for a spin. Thorpeness, despite being only 4 miles away from the oft-visited Aldeburgh, is hitherto unexplored, and the weather is excellent (for January, at least). Afterwards, it's back for dinner and a chance for Amelia and Fred to run around like lunatics for a couple of hours.
