The Granary Barn @ Woodfarm HQ:

This feels like a million years ago now, even thought it was just 2009.

It had always been my dream to convert a Suffolk Barn. Eventually my dream came true. Then it just kinda snowballed! I believe if something's worth doing, it's worth doing A LOT!

That's what you call starting from scratch! It looks amazing now.

What an achievement. xx

Love what you have done to all the Barns.👏👏👏

So glad your barn dreams came true - we love them xx

Wow where has that time gone .....! What a fabulous job you all did x

Superlatives will just flow all over your barns and barges. Great job 😊

Look forward to seeing them for real sometime!

I can remember that like that, you had to take your shoes off,when you came out. Hard work has been it’s success, xx

Another week dawns in Suffolk, and I never tire of this view as the sun comes up over our Doggy exercise meadow.

To clarify, it comes up all over the place, not just our meadow. But it does do it very nicely here

Aah, the lovely meadow, beloved by this pair when we came on holiday

These two loved the meadow

Looks lovely, hope you are feeling better

Gorgeous I wish I was back there had a lovely week x

We are very excited about heading your way. Hope your feeling better x

Macey enjoyed the meadow last week too - especially once she found the burst footballs!!!Hope you’ll soon be back on that bike flashing the Lycra!! xx

Hope you’re feeling much better xx💞

It certainly does

Looking forward to staying at orwell barn in a few weeks, last stay was on the cheeky barge 😊 Hope you are feeling well and strong very soon 💐🤗

Must have missed a post. Have you had the dreaded Covid-19? What ever it was I'm glad you're improving xx

Not long till I see that view again 😍 Hope you feel better soon x

You sound heaps better, lets hope you get to John 'O' Groats safely 😊

The girls have always loved the meadow but this time Skye will be there on her own...🐶😥...... not for long though as she will have a new little sister in early November 💝....! Glad you are slowly on the mend - it’s been a bit of a long haul and the current damp mornings are probably not really helping....xx

Beautiful sunrise down here in Cornwall too, which we can actually see a bit better now that the monster Leylandii are finally coming down!! Hope you're healing well. Stay safe x

What a wonderful picture

You sound a little better. 🤞

Can't really remember what the outside world looks like, so I've been looking back through some old photos.

Here's a Pin Mill sunrise about a year ago.

Hope you like it.

Great photo!

Hate wasps - but great photo 😮

Looks like something from a horror film 😱 x

Perry Lin Atkins 🐝

He is gorgeous!

Look at his furry little head!

Eeek!!!!

Nice to know your not alone 😂👍

Brilliant picture. But having just had a mammoth battle to remove a wasps nest from underground which resulted in us digging down about 2 and a 1/2 feet, removing an old tree stump in the process. I say 'us' but that would be hubby 😉. You can keep your wasp thank you very much

Keep the wasp away from Deben barn!!!

That would be the moment I could do the 4 minute mile, am allergic to the little blighters 😲

That would be the end of my sitting in the sunshine. Fast exit back indoors.

Did it survive

Sandra Allison Anthony 😱

Hi 👋

I hope that’s magnified and not real size🤣🤣🤣

Brilliant photo

Amazing photo!! Shame wasps are so disliked. xx

Aaaaargh!!! I would have hated that. I have been stung 3 times & each time I was sitting still minding my own business & not flapping around, they are just nasty!

Brilliant photo, up close and personal.🤣

Great photo!

Amazing pic! 👌🏻

“Excuzzzze me zzzsir. Do you have a moment to talk about our Lord and zzzsaviour?”

Hope it hasn't built a nest there.😎😎

With just 163 miles to go this is my second day without getting on my bike. I've been full of cold for a week, which has now made its way to my chest as it does every year.

I can cycle with a cold, but not with a chest infection. I'm asthmatic and it tightens my chest up, restricting my ability to breathe very well; something one needs to do a lot when cycling.

Turns out my decrepit old body can't really handle 676 miles in three weeks, without falling apart. Still, at least I know now! 😂

On the plus side I was way ahead of schedule by a week, so I'm hoping to still finish within five weeks of starting, even with this setback. As long as my drugs kick in quickly!

So here's a pic of my trusty steed 'Buzz Lightweight' on his hanger, where he'll remain for most of the week I reckon.

Take it easy old boy...have a wee hot toddy 🥃 Love my new cycle lane for work

Aw. Feel better soon.

Hope you feel better soon x

Get well soon xx

Hope you feel better soon

Sorry to hear that Carl but I’m sure you’ll smash it when you’re better. Make sure you’re better first though or I’ll put my nurses hat on and give you a severe talking to when we come Friday!!!

Hope you feel better soon. Take it easy and make sure you’re fully recovered before you hit the saddle again. Xx

tdo take it easy, and wishing you a speedy recovery from your chest infection

Make sure you fully recover before getting back on x

Bad news indeed hope you are soon back in the saddle (in your case on it). Keep taking the medication and get well soon. X

Get well soon!

Get well soon Carl 💕

Good morning C. Scott... Sorry to hear you are poorly... Rest and get well soon... Buzz isn't going anywhere... Sending healing thoughts. xx

Get well soon and rest up x

Wishing you better so you can complete the race xx

🤗🤗

Hope you’re better soon Carl, take care!

Sorry to hear that 😪! Hope you manage to kick it soon - guessing that you aren’t at Paws in the Park this coming Saturday..... still can’t see how they are managing to go ahead even with advance online booking only......🤔 x

Sorry to hear you’re under the weather, wishing you a speedy recovery. x

Hope you feel better soon x
