    Pure Gold blend Carl 😂

    Carlcafe.

    Is there no end to your talents Carl 😂😂🤣🤣!

    You could brew your own chocca mocha beer!!!🤪🤪🤪

    About time you started growing vines and treading the grapes so we can have some nice Suffolk wine on our next visit! PS wash your feet first!

    Such a hard life, your medal is on its way xx

    Carl what's a medal when you already have everything? You have barns, barges, Suffolk countryside, and woodentops, seriously what else do you need?...........I know coffee 😕😏😕 x

    I would happily be 'chief' coffee grinder/tester, love both the smell & taste. ☕ x

    Ooh such a hard life you have Carl!

    You can't beat the smell of freshly ground coffee ☕

    Word of advice for stoopid people. Which is definitely not me. This didn't happen to me. I'm just telling you it could happen to you if you're stoopid. But I'm not...

    When you go to the Hog & Hen farmshop to get all the breakfast basket goodies for your guests, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT put the eggs on top of everything else in the boot, and assume you can drive back to Woodfarm HQ carefully. What you should do is open the back door and put them safely on the back seat.

    The last thing I said to Amy as I left the shop was "What could possibly go wrong"?

    I'll tell you what could possibly go wrong if you're stoopid. What could possibly go wrong is that you would have to stop suddenly 😳

    So there you go, sound advice peeps. Luckily I'm not that stoopid 🤦

    Bring on the puns, I'm eggspecting nothing less of you

    You always crack us up with your jokes Carl

    Looks like the yolks on you. I’m cracking up over it

    So... You had to shell out for more eggs!? 🥚🤣

    You had a smashing time then? It’s no yolk is it! One for the album/en! 😜😂.

    Eggscellent advice xx

    I hope they weren’t eggspensive

    Cracking!

    Knowing you you’re probably eggaggerating 😜

    I bet you were fried after dealing with that mess. Scrambles the brain! You should poach someone's cleaner to help

    Shell you chalk this one up to experience

    Do you need a coddle?

    It's not eggxagerating or a yoke to clean that scramble

    Egg. Face. 🥚 🙃

    How eggsasperating!

    Eggsasperating!

    Eggshausting having to clear that lot up x

    Well that was an egg-plosive experience! 🥚🐣

    Have they not invented egg boxes in Suffolk??!! 😆

    That’s no yoke is it !

    Eggcellent advice, putting them on the backseat. My head would be scrambled having to clean that up!

    Over egging the advice a little bit aren't you? 😁

    Call in all the Kings horses and all the Kings men to help you. Spoiler: may not work though...

    Clucking annoying at best....

    What a shame after you had shelled out for them, hope the car is allwhite though! Don't envy you having to clean it up 😲

    Cracking!

    Many years ago I had a job.

    If I was lucky, once a year my boss would tell me I was doing well.

    Much prefer what I do now, and have my guests tell me all the time. That's far more rewarding.

    Thank you Jan x

    I work for myself as well and having clients/customers saying thank you it was good/great is lovely, makes everything and all the hard work worth it, so WTG you Carl you obviously deserve it. I will travel the 20 minutes to get to see your barns, one day, but I will warn you first lol 😜 x

    Carl is the most accommodating person I have ever met. Maitre’D, concierge, boulevardier and cycling Titan. And a fine human being.

    Good morning C. Scott!! Deffo well deserved review in my humble opinion!! Have a great Bank Holiday weekend. xx

    Well done Carl, with reports like that, makes all the hard work, worth it. 😉💕💕

    Can i go please??

    Yes, of course is it very catty?

    Can't wait for you to tell meow to win! 🐈

    Is someone going to get the chance to join you on a modelling assignment?

    Unveil the whole " KITTEN CABOODLE " 💛

    love the picture/caption.

    Ohhhh yes.... 🐱🐱

    Truly Pawsome!

    You mean there’s a better prize than the ‘Let’s Get Busy with the Quizzy” T-Shirt? 😱

    It's #ThrowbackThursday so let's #throwback to this time in April 2020

    Ironic that I look like a student, as I was inadvertently at the start of my Gap Year!

    You're supposed to have a gap year when you're in your late teens or early twenties, not in your mid-fifties! What was I thinking?!?!

    Anyway, I decided to go travelling and find myself. I travelled around the meadow at Woodfarm HQ a lot, and I did find myself as I was the only one there. I was easy to spot.

    What did you do in your 2020 to 2021 gap year?

    Mostly stayed indoors with the dog 😭

    Followed you!

    I did lots of gardening and so did someone else! Day 1 of 'Chewgate' ...where has my shrub gone mentioning no names Louis! 🤦‍♀️🤣

    Worked from home, definitely blurring the lines between home and work - wait that’s not a gap year 😂

    Home schooled my grandson and your daily blog kept me amused

    Sounds about the same as I did. But how did that year so by so quickly? X

    Worked and stayed at home - still am but loved your daily blogs about trumpton and Cummings - still don’t like him but gave me a laugh and cheered up my day - did online quizzes and weekly zoom meetings with friends and family xx

    I didnt get a gap year, I am envious! But at least you kept us all laughing, bless you.

    I didn’t have a gap year but your various antics kept me laughing.

    Work. I’m a radiographer!

    Trod the paths around our local woods and open spaces (which had suddenly become very busy.....!!) doing dog walks. Oh and the relentless cooking 😀😀!! ‘It were dead boring’ (to borrow a quote from the film Chicken Run....!!)

    Worked, read your words of wisdom............. They were weren't they? Walked dogs, cooked, read your blogs, oh right I already said that, and....what's a gap year for people like us? 😟 x

    Work in the the quaint little fishing village just 22 miles from Calais 😜

    Not so much a gap year - more a life has stopped year . Had 2nd vaccination now. Hopefully things will get more “normal” soon xx

    Gained weight 🙁

    Swapped homes with YoungerSon. Nearer civilisation and learned to live alone, apart from cat. Found some interesting websites, including this one.

    Work, I'm afraid...but without the kudos of being NHS... Maybe our gap year will be along another time 😁

    Got up each day to read your diary, looked forward to your quizzes & spent our exercise sessions working on an allotment we had just taken on & wrote lists of things to achieve during lockdown - still have the lists with very little ticked off! 🤓

    I like to think I have some very good ideas from time to time.

    So I've decided to share one or two of them as they occur, under the banner of 'Woodfarm's Handy Household Hints'.

    I do hope they are going to be useful to you.

    Here's my first suggestion, and there are more to follow soon...

    Think I'd rather keep my head on my shoulders than have it taken off by a passing artic xx

    This is what could go wrong 😳😂

    Louis up for that! 🤣🤣

    I reckon you’re on to a good idea there Carl - compile into a book and it’ll be a best seller!!

    I’ve heard dogs can drive their owners to drink but you’d be ok - after all you don’t drink much!!!!🤪🤪🤪

    I must be addicted to this FB page because I’ve admitted I shall never visit and I don’t like housework, so why am I here? ( No dog either.)

    Now we are all up and running again and my modelling career seemed to come to an abrupt end, I’ve been looking around for something to do in my spare time.

    I’m not sure if you’ve heard this week but MI6 are recruiting and for once they’re looking outside the organisation.

    It’s a bit hush hush so don’t say anything, but I’ve been approached and am currently in talks with them about becoming their new spy, 003.5

    Ideally they wanted an Oxbridge candidate but they heard I’d got ‘O’ Level Art from a comprehensive school in Essex and they appear keen!

    They’ve said they won’t let me have an Aston Martin yet though, so I still have to use my bike.

    Anyway, I thought I’d strike whilst the iron is hot and I’ve also been in touch with the movie people too. They are looking to bring out a series of movies if I get the job;

    Dr. Woodfarm

    Live and Let Woodfarm

    Diamonds are For Woodfarm

    The Man with the Golden Barn

    The Spy Who Loved Me Barge

    For Your Barn Only

    Woodfarm Royale

    Quantum of Woodfarm

    I’ll keep you posted on my progress obvs, but it's all very exciting and means I get to travel the world taking out baddies. I think my first assignment is Downing Street 😳

    Thanks for the morning smile Carl xx

    As Captain of the Woodfarm organisation your bound to be high on their list , Happy Hunting 👨‍✈️🥷🕶

    Careful - piranhas in the hot tub!

    I think your imagination is running riot Carl 😂😂

    I can see how your day is going to pan out... 😂😂.. Have a good one C. Scott!! xx

    Looking forward to seeing Woodfarm is Not Enough or Hot tubs are Forever 😁

    I can’t keep up with all your career changes..... I guess you decided to stop training for the olympics in welly wanging then?? Modelling obviously was short lived..... perhaps you should consider buying up another piece of land and building some more barns 🤔🤔😀😀 probably more long term than 5 minutes of fame as Carlos Bond 😂😂🤣🤣!!

    OK Carl here come the guys that will save you from yourself, I would help as well but you scare me now 😂😂😂 x

    The name is Scott, Carl Scott 😎🍸🍾🥂

    The Spy Who Loved Me Barge - that's brilliant! 😆😆

    Oh dear Carl, this modelling business has gone to your head! Just do what you do best Woodfarm! 😀

    Groan!

    you forgot Octodoggy!

    Your parents allowed you to take Art at school??? I can hear my Dad now... "you're not taking Art, no one makes a living as an artist"! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I expect you were SHAKEN....not stirred!?

    We have a WINNER!

    We did a little exclusive offer to our VIP Rewards Group over the weekend.

    We threw all the names of the first 50 on each into a hat, as we said we would, and picked out.....

    *** Tracey Blazey ***

    Well done to Tracey, who will be getting her goodies very soon, and thank you to ALL OF YOU for showing so much love for Woodfarm House and Meadow View Cottage.
