    Garden project...

    For years, Stour barn had this lovely feature in the garden, which was originally an old animal feed trough I believe. I topped it with a couple of ancient floorboards from The Granary Barn and mounted it on two tree stumps. It's been there a long time, but the wood inside and underneath has finally given up the ghost as you can see when I took the floorboards off 😟

    So... I pulled it down, cut up a scaffold board, stained them, popped on a couple of very old iron hinges (again that I found in The Granary Barn), treated the wood and fitted it back to the tree stumps.

    Just thought I'd share it with you. Hope you like it.

    Aren’t you so resourceful 😊

    My friends popped over to see me last night and we were all commenting on the table (not that we'd seen it before) and how it was genius fixing it to the tree stumps! I'm so pleased it was upgraded just for my royal visit 😊🤣 x

    Nicole Yvette Phelan

    There is definitely no end to your talents x

    Fabulous, clever sausage!

    Ohh, a new feature for us in a couple of weeks 😊

    We are staying Sunday! Can't wait.

    Looks great

    It looks fabulous - well done.

    You are very talented!!

    Thank you for taking such good care of our holiday home , liking your work will give it a try in November hope our Robin likes it 👍👋🐾

    Great job....

    Ahhh, that's what it was! Liam and I weren't sure what it was originally! Looks great 👍🏻

    Listening with interest to the new simple, seven-step traffic light system for foreign travel. I do hope they'll bring this into our roads soon as the current system is far too easy.

    As somebody fortunate enough to have a home in another country, I've adopted the 'wait til this thing is over' system. I've weighed up a trip to Tuscany versus staying alive, and the latter won.

    If only there was an option somehow to enjoy a holiday in this country. I see a gap in the market 😳

    Loving my current staycation in Stour Barn thank you very much. Glad those traffic lights weren't there when I arrived...I'd still be waiting! 🤣🤣🤣

    Please don’t tell Kent about those traffic lights - there’s enough chaos on the roads here already 😱

    Na go for it. I’m falling apart and a bit older than you and Im going to Fuerteventurer for 10 days next week and Portugal in Sept and Rye in the middle. You only live once that time is NOW!

    As long as Woodfarm is on the permenant green list!

    SOCK NEWS!!!

    I have shared my various sock troubles with you in the past, and this one warrants your attention...

    Imagine my horror when doing the laundry yesterday, only to find that one of my stray socks had somehow made it into the washing machine on changeover day. Not only had it shrunk massively, but it had also grown dinosaurs!!!

    It was then that I remembered that we had young Iris and Max staying in Woodfarm House, making a lot of washing during the week for their mummy and daddy. I guessed correctly that this was actually the property of Max, and returned to him before he left. So sweet when he assured me they would be back.

    It’s a tricerasock!

    Went house-hunting over the weekend. Liked this place, but it was a bit small. Oh, and it wasn't for sale. Apparently the National Trust still want it.

    Blickling Hall may be in Norfolk, but it's an easy trip out from Woodfarm HQ, just over an hour away. Don't forget to bring your passport though, as there's a border control just this side of Diss. I shouldn't say this, but they are easily bribed with a tortoise and three magic beans.

    Just as well you didn’t buy it - looks like it’s falling down in the last photo🤪

    My kinda pad! Just back from a fab weekend camping and selling at VW Beetle-Juiced Festival at Stonham Barns Events. I think we could see you if we tried really hard xx

    Had an office at Blickling Hall for a few years. Beautiful place and lovely dog friendly cafe. Happy memories 😊

    Oh, maybe one to visit in a couple of weeks if dog friendly 😊

    You sure that’s Norfolk, and not Italy 🇮🇹

    My favourite house-absolutly stunning and almost as good as Granary Barn x

    You were down the road!

    Love that place .. Great walks

    Blickling is about a 20 minutes drive from us - you could have dropped by for a cuppa!😜

    Love Blickling Hall x

    Err I hope now I’ve just bought a piece of Woodland in Suffolk you don’t expect that from this carrot cruncher? You’ll get a tin of baked beans and a crispy fried rat and like it!

    Haha, August Fools Day!

    Yes it's August the 1st and I hear on the radio that the Government are now incentivising younger people to get their jabs by offering them a slice of pizza! Hahahaha, nearly got me!

    Wait what, it's actually true?

    Wow, just wow. I think I'm going to get in touch with the Mothership and ask if I can head home now

    Is that the mothership with the alien lizards that are reading the chips in our vaccines??

    Whilst all the old codgers had to make their own way to the vaccine centre and queue out in the cold/rain (not us personally as we were lucky to go straight in at our GP) but…… you couldn’t make it up - or could you…!!!!

    It’s the only way they can get a “pizza the action”!!!😜😜😜

    Next it's sweeties for the under 5 year olds......

    Beneath all the humour, people should start really asking the serious questions regarding this. Covid is virtually no threat to younger people, the risk of the vaccine ranges from 10x to 50x greater depending on which studies you read. This jab everyone regardless of the cost using coercion and inducements is very, very worrying.

    I persuaded my children by offering them "not dying"...
