    House guests!

    Even though we are fully booked, I managed to find some space to accommodate these little cuties.

    My daughter Lauren is away, so I'm playing the part of 'Grandad' to Pigly & Patterchen for a week. They eat a LOT of hay, and manage to turn it into millions of tiny 'presents' all over their home!

    Facebook memory from 9 years ago!

    This is what I wrote…

    “Loving my view as I look at the last two barns and know that I have no more building work to do! I am now retired. Well, sort of! All 7 barns finished and all 7 with back to back bookings for at least the next two weeks. Chuffed to bits. The last two haven't even officially been launched yet and they're full!”

    Haha, can’t believe I thought I was retired. That aside, we were even full way back then!

    Anyone who knows HQ well will observe the tiny, newly planted tree outside Deben Barn, which is now huuuuge, as well as all the Salix that line the driveway, that you can't even see in this photo!

    I was just thinking that about the trees!

    I remember staying at the farmhouse with BHASS and Sharon Willett and I came and saw the building going on. Not long after hubby and I were staying Deben. Now you can't actually get rid of us. Should have thought that one through! How marvellous it is all still going strong even through this awful time. Can't wait to get there x

    Cant wait to see it all again-not long now x

    Just looked out of the window & that tree is huge xx

    Don’t think you will ever retire xx

    Beauty & the Beast?

    I'm not a fan of pylons, but I had to stop my bike and take this shot as the sun was rising, fortunately miles from Woodfarm HQ

    Nature vs. Man, but I think nature wins

    Carl there's a wonderful poem by Ted Hughes about the metal giants striding the countryside and your glorious picture brought it to mind. Thank you.

    Beautiful picture but, yes, nature wins hands down 🌅

    They are ugly Carl, and always seem to be where you don’t want them! But I suppose it’s the same with wind farms, we get used to seeing them!

    That is a amazing photo xx

    Who on Earth got a pat on the back for an invention like that? Surely there must have been another possibility! 😂

    Mother Nature is always a winner.

    I’ve just spotted a lady in my local supermarket sporting a Woodfarm tshirt! I’m in Chelmsford!

    Woodfarm Barges Superman Pete managed to get some fresh paint onto the decks of Twee Gebroeders in between guests the other day.

    Isn't she a pretty sight? (Twee Gebroeders, not Pete)

    Never seen this but love ginger so should like it

    Hmm, love ginger nuts, love peanut butter but so not sure about this

    Never seen this! I'm not quite sure though I do love ginger biscuits!

    😩

    Would give it a go x

    Noooo - how to ruin peanut butter….. you have probably guessed that I am not a fan of ginger!! 😂😂

    😭

    Hmmm🤔 The jury’s still out on that one ! love ginger biscuits & spicy ginger cake but hate peanut butter xx

    Oooooh it’s a yes from me 😋

    Love ginger nut biscuits but not peanut butter so I’d need a taste to pass a verdict.

    Yes

    🤮

    No thanks Sounds as bad as choccamocha beer 🤮

    Sounds great, love peanut butter and ginger so lovely combination would live to try 😋

    Never in a million years!

    🤮

    😂

    I'd love this, but have Coeliac Disease, so can't eat gluten.😭

    Ooh, maybe 🤔 😋

    It sounds nice x

    I’d give it a whirl!👍😋

    Perhaps perhaps perhaps! 🤔

    Is it ginger nut as in the biscuit or just ginger added to peanut butter.

    Don’t think so. But then again have just eaten a tub of honey and chilli roasted peanuts!

    Love to try this where can you buy it ginger and peanut yummm

    All we can do is to spread love, humour, harmony, kindness, reassurance in our proximity, and then rely on the ‘domino effect’. That’s what you are consistently brilliant at doing - you should feel very proud of yourself indeed. 🌟👍

    Oh dear

    Looks like it's a case of Moles: 1, Humans: Nil

    Found this unfortunate fellow round the corner from Woodfarm HQ. I have a feeling with one or two of our recent posts, that it might be scarecrow season round these parts.

    He's found another pair of your glasses.....😁

    I am a mole and I live in a hole,but I don’t think that one will fit😍

    Holy Moley!

    Is it that doctor from embarrassing bodies, looking for unusual moles ???

    Let’s hope that he isn’t a relative of Wurzel Gummidge and will come to life and cause all sorts of havoc 😂😂🤣🤣!!

    Haha

    Phew! Thought that was you for a moment !!!🤪

    Barbara Robinson

    To quote Jasper Carrott "'Ere, I 'ear you've got a mole. There's only one way to get rid of a mole...BLOW ITS BLOODY HEAD OFF!"
