“I have two favourite places on this little planet of ours. Suffolk and Tuscany. Having built my business in Suffolk, firstly on dry land and then onto the water with our Barges, I’m now expanding it just a little further. To Tuscany!

Woodfarm Tuscany has a delightful little country house with breath-taking views across the Garfagnana, which is the upper valley of the river Serchio, just 20 minutes North-West of Lucca and only 45 minutes from Pisa airport.

A holiday or short-break here is all about the scenery, and food & drink. We have the most amazing location to explore this beautiful area, and enjoy some ‘you time’ from your Tuscan terrace”

Our Dog-friendly Holiday Cottage in Tuscany….

I viewed a lot of houses in the area and then ended up buying the first one I’d seen! The views were love at first sight. The house itself requires a complete renovation, but then I’m used to that, so it’s not a problem.

But the views are simply unforgettable and we don’t have to renovate them!!

Food, Wine and that Tuscan view!

Once it’s finished, this Cottage will be about the incredible views. A cosy place to stay, with the modern comforts you expect from us, in a location giving you easy access to the most popular parts of Tuscany. With or without dogs.

And to go with those views we are building a spacious terrace in the garden, with comfy seating, pizza and bread oven, and a BBQ.

So if you fancy the idea of sitting back and relaxing with the warm Tuscan air wrapped around you as you sip a nice glass of local wine, waiting for your handmade pizza or locally sourced BBQ produce to be ready, then you’d better get your diaries out.

There’ll even be a proper pasta maker in the kitchen, along with local flour and eggs so you can really get into the spirit!

‘Trebbio’ forms part of a tiny hamlet near a tiny village called Piazza Di Brancole, on a hillside overlooking the Garfagnana Valley.

One of these is a Care Home. The other is a Careless Homosapien.

One of them has been slammed today by the PM, who said “too many care homes didn’t really follow the procedures in the way that they could have", after they were forced to take back infected residents/ patients from hospitals.

One them was closely guarded and protected by, and still has a job with, his mate the PM, who said he "behaved responsibly, legally and with integrity" when he broke the rules we were all following by going to Durham and Barnard Castle, whilst knowingly carrying coronavirus in his vehicle, only fessing up when he was rumbled.

If I had a daily diary I would have soooo many words to say on this. But I don't. I'd probably spit feathers and use naughty words. But I need to focus on my business again now. Soz

Having now done our first full load of changeovers now, we are properly back in the game!

Two complaints from the weekend though; "The only fault I could find is that I couldn't find any faults", and "Why can't you make time go slower?". Thanks to Luke and Lesley respectively for those, we'll take that!

In other news, it looks like my 'Lone Ranger' mask idea from last week wasn't my scoop as Suffolk's best Newspaper, the Suffolk Gazette reported it the day before me!

Not only that, but it turns out that Dimwald Klump had the genius idea of cutting holes in his so he could see all the mayhem he's causing! Why didn't I think of that?!?!

This is why I'm just running my little Holiday Barns & Barges business, and not running the best newspaper in Suffolk, or running the United States (into the ground)

Morning Woodentops.

What a night down the Woodfarm Arms, with Mugs, a T-Shirt, and THREE FREE BREAKS given away, plus some 'Quizzy' fun had by all.

Well done to Kirsty Jukes and Adele Houlding, the lucky recipients of our two NHS Heroes Holidays, and well done to Gunilla Ward who won our 11th Birthday Competition!

Sounds like the start of a diary entry doesn't it? Well although it isn't, we have made headway in getting the whole diary onto the website thanks to Woodentop Louise, so more news on that soon!

Louise also went through the diary and pulled out all the names that I came up with for the malignant narcissist voted in by the American electoral system to take care of their country. That's going well. Thought I'd share them with you. There's only 82 of them to choose from... 🤣🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️.

Comment on Facebook Morning Woodentops....

I can’t choose!!!! All brilliant 👍

Ah - I was only one out in my guess of 81 names! All worthy monikers!

Oompah Trumpa definitely along with Numpty Trumpty 🙂

Trumple van tango juat gets my vote 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

So much choice!

Ha ha you like him then !

They're all brilliant and so glad there's a list but I think the one that sums him up is 'The Slimy Orange Gutter- Crawler'

All brilliant, didn’t realise there were so many. My favourite bit of the diary!

Wow! So many to choose from, all so apt and fitting I can't choose a favourite x

Wow! They are all brilliant but I'd have to go for Damp Old Runt.

Love em all. ... but if had to choose then it would be ...no it’s just too hard! Xxx

Trumpty numpty 😂

Keep reading them all and coming back to Damp Old Runt which makes me smile the most 😀

Flumpy McTrumpburger makes me chuckle. The really funny thought is imagining his reaction to being called these names.

I'm sure there were more 😄 Difficult to choose - but has to be Trumple Guiltskin - because he is.

Orangey Tangoed Useless Slimeball is my favourite. I’ve just read them out to Jacob, he thoroughly enjoyed them but he did say he thought you were slightly mad! Sorry I missed one or two!

Damp old Runt or Dickwad Dump - oh they were all appropriate and to think that on 82 occasions we all knew who you were referring to...😂😂🤣🤣!!

Damp Old Runt is my choice. All brilliant didn't realize one person could have so many names

Good morning and well done to the winners! Numpty Trumpty is my favourite 🤣 Have a good day everyone. X

I’m am so delighted to have won the prize! Can’t wait to go and discover the farm. Thank you so much xx😍

Got to be Damp Old Runt as my favourite. Sums him up perfectly 😜.

Great night Captain 👨‍✈️ can’t wait to get to our second home 🏡 see you so 👍😊

Have to go for Flumpty Trumpty.... Big decision on a Monday morning.

Trumpty Numpty for me. Just when you think it couldn't get any worse across the pond Kanye West has announced he's running for president. And if that's not bad enough it would mean Kim Kardashian as first lady. You couldn't make it up 🤣🤣

Love them all but will chose Dick Van Trumpling as my favourite 😁 Sorry I could only pop in briefly (roughly 5 seconds 🤣) but was out with my daughter watching her show jump! It was a lonnnggg old session as someone fell & needed an ambulance. Where's James when you need him? 😁 Anyway, dog had me up early today, so played the quiz myself...rubbish at lyrics (I know, they all said!) And scored 25 1/2. Quiz is in my diary for next month...promise! Have a good one x

Got to go now as it's my son's birthday 🍾🍻. . Have fun everyone & good luck to all for the amazing giveaway. Xx

I’m going to have a go if that’s all right! Haven’t joined this before!

Thanks again Carl - look forward to the next one. Neill has thought of a round already 😁Night all x

No. 9 I loved them...my first CD and I didn’t own a CD player!

Thank you Carl, great quiz even if I was rubbish! iPad battery didn’t help!x

For some that doesn’t drink a lot, you seem to be having a beer quite a few times!

No decided to go to Iceland for 40th I’m January! Great place not so great food.

Dont be cheeky Carl.. I know I am your favourite... and it is great to be back x

Evening Carl! Very windy here today, the weather, not me!!!

I filleted a fish in that kitchen, great experience. Thanks Chef Mark

Got to go dog walking now... good luck to all for the competion... Xx

I’m thick as I thought it was all the answers not the letters given so only got 12 with joker...!

Wow- now I see everyone else’s- maybe 9 wasn’t so good- still pleased

You’d love the laugh promenade in Blackpool, all the classic quotes from the legends on the boardwalk

Only available in large to fit all the wording in...

Rather embarrassingly grounded our ocean rowing boat in Poole Harbour at the end of our sea trials.

Think I’d better go for joker on R 3 as I’m a chocoholic...😀😀!!

Thanks all, I loved reading it again, it’s such a great record of events xx

Hello - we are quizzing with Karen and Jon from separate locations

No I am useless at lyrics. Used to think karma chameleon was actually become a comedian

I'm glad you kissed the Rush question Mark, coz it meant I won!

Excellent monthly quiz...thank you Carl and all the question setters

Such a nice thing to do Carl, and thank you to all the wonderful NHS heroes, you’re all amazing 💖

Get in the Diary into a document and Print it to a PDF file is my suggestion

Top evening again Carl. Look forward to next month work permitting.
