“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.

Dear Diary

Day 67 of Lockdown in the UK - 29th May 2020

Morning Woodentops.

Hope you enjoyed the quiz the other night, including my very tenuous ‘brushes with celebs’. But the big news of course was our amazing new theme tune “Let’s get bizzy with the Quizzy”, written and performed by my very talented bandmate Fern, with guest vocals from my other talented bandmate Sam, and using sampled vocals from me (without my permission I might add!!!) It’s definitely got ‘Number. 1’ written all over it!

Well I had a successful Deli day yesterday. I measure success by a) getting all the right food to all the right people, b) hyping up (as Michelle puts it) the Deli team sufficiently, c) my car not requiring medical assistance, and d) me not getting any abuse! (Apart from the Deli team, but that’s the norm). Not only did I escape the wrath of my recent abuser, but I can tell you that I had the highest accolade that a volunteer delivery driver can get. I originally put my little delivery sign on my dashboard in the days when there were very few cars on the road, as I felt conspicuous out there, slowing down and seemingly ‘casing people’s joints’, whilst trying to find houses with names but no signs. Weird to think that this was only 6 weeks or so ago, but things have changed out there and my sign is probably academic now.

Anyhoo, back to my accolade. I only got a bloomin’ thumbs up from a Waitrose delivery driver didn’t I?!?!?! Yes indeedy, as a lowly volunteer I was acknowledged by the very upper echelons of the frontline food delivery elite, and it felt good I don’t mind telling you! But I didn’t let it go to my head folks, I just carried on with my rounds. I might have stopped at Bungay Town Hall on the way past to check if my keys to the town had arrived yet though. They hadn’t.

On Wednesday I had a meeting with my colleague Andrew. An actual meeting. You know the sort where you see each other not on a zoom screen, and discuss strategies and stuff, as you prepare to get the business out of hibernation. As you can see from the pic, we adhered to the guidelines (and common sense) and I’d even set up a special socially distanced al fresco coffee station, in which I’d anti-bacced everything, and provided gloves and anti-bac wipes. I set up a chair and desk (errmmm, folding table) for Andrew, which I anti-bac wiped down before his arrival at the Woodfarm fresh-air office that I’ve spent the last two months working in. I’ve never spent to long preparing for a meeting, and that was just cleaning!

We did good stuff! It was like the old days, where we came up with ideas, and ways to market the business. Fortunately, Andrew’s brain functions a bit like mine, in that he also comes up with daft gubbins that we think you’ll like. I think the creativity is because we are both musicians, but also ex-punks, so we occasionally hit on something innovative, but also don’t feel we have to be restricted by what is considered ‘the norm’. Neither of us were the nasty sort of punks that went round gozzing on people or anything like that, but there is that inherent naughty streak that means we don’t much like to conform, which you may have noticed. I think that helps. So thank you Messrs Lydon, Rotten, Strummer et al, for your influence upon the Woodfarm marketing team. The other thing is that we are both bass players, so having chosen the guitar with the fewest strings, we tend to simplifying things, and try not to over-complicate matters.

As you can see from another attached pic I went for a drive to test my eyes and came a little unstuck. Just in case you’re concerned, I didn’t really by the way, the pic is just one I found online by Googling ‘Range Rover crash’, which I then modified for the purposes of merriment. It made me giggle anyway.

Ok, apart from the odd reference for your amusement, I am now going to steer (in my 2.5 ton car whilst testing my eyesight) well away from the Cummings and Goings of the utter farce still raging in the carpeted corridors of Whitehall (ten points to anyone who gets that reference). But I keep hearing this phrase “Whackamole” bandied about by the government now, filtering out into the media. Why is it that they latch onto something and then keep repeating it ad nauseam? It’s a Pavlovian concept I know, and it works in advertising, but I just hate it when politicians come up with something and then ram it down our throats in every sentence they utter, whether it’s in context or not, as if they think we will all walk around in a zombie-like state, repeating their words. I don’t know about you, but I’m not easily brainwashed? I didn’t shuffle around saying “Get Brexit done”, or “Strong and stable”, or “Bing a bong a bang a bon-bon for Big Ben’s bung” or whatever it was. And I refuse to add “Whackamole” to my daily vocabulary. As far as I am concerned, it is and always will be, just another dip to put on the table at a party, along with the hummus, salsa and tortilla chips. I don’t even know why an avocado based dish has been brought into politics, but I simply refuse to be hoodwinked! And it’s pronounced “Whackamolay”, not “Whackamole” you numbnuts!

Talking of the government, how come Dido is working with them now!?! Has her tea gone that cold that she’s now acting in some advisory capacity on the new track and trace system? Talking of which, there may be a need to isolate some schools, or housing estates, or even parts of towns if and when the system discovers ‘hot spots’. Dick Ferrari was banging on about this being “completely unfair”. Seriously mate, the whole bloody thing is unfair, but WE DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE! It is a pandemic and the virus dictates the rules as I have said a number of times now. If the government tell me that Stonham Aspal is a red flagged centre of the virus and we must all stay at home, do you think I will a) Stay at home for a bit, b) Shout and scream that it’s unfair and that we shouldn’t have our liberty taken by the oppressive machine trying to take over our minds, or c) Pop out to Barnard Castle if I need to check the functionality of my optic nerves? Probably option a, you plum, as thats the one most likely to get us through this. Anyway good luck Dido, I’m glad you’ve diversified your talents. It’s not so bad, not so bad, and I want to thank you. Ok, you can have five points for that reference as it’s way less obscure than the previous one.

I heard a statement on Wednesday that “If a tracer tells you that you’ve been near someone with COVID, then you MUST self isolate”. Ermmmm, I’m assuming that if you know your wife has it though, you are ok to drive her and your son 270 miles to self-isolate, being careful that you don’t catch it though, as that’d be silly. I just read the full guidelines and that’s all ok. Turns out you are also allowed to nip out for an eye test if it’s her Birthday too, which is nice. So, we’re all clear then on track and trace? I’m so pleased I can deliver the facts to you in a simple and concise manner.

Woodentop Louise shared a story with me that her friend had shared about a TV programme on the 18th century British monarchies. Her friend said that “it shows how deeply ingrained in the British psyche is the concept of accountability of those in power. When an unelected official appears to have too much influence in the Government, he or she is challenged by the people. Remembering the English Civil War of 1642-1649, the Georgians knew only too well the cost of appointing unpopular advisors”. She went on to say that certain people “may want to heed the historic warning: "You are putting a rod into pickle, Sire, with which they will beat you hereafter!””. I have no idea what the implications of putting one’s rod in a pickle are, but I’m certain that it ain’t good!

Let’s finish up today in America shall we? I’ve been playing with anagrams of the orange one’s name to come up with some new ones, so I’ll run one or two by you. Damp Old Runt is possibly my favourite. It seems the single most important thing going on in the States right now is that Twitter has popped a sticker on one or two of Lord Dampnut’s Tweets, suggesting that we ‘fact check’ them. The reason they have done this is that those Tweets contain completely false information. As his country (not him, his country) mourns 100,000 deaths due to the virus, his biggest concern is that when he makes stuff up, Twitter are clearing their throats and suggesting we may wish to look into what he has said independently. And what does Dalton Drump do about this? Of course, he calls it “stifling free speech”.

McEnany the Flumpet declined to comment on whether Lard Dumpton should ever be fact-checked. What she did say was that his “intent is always to give truthful information to the American people”. a) I’m pretty sure that isn’t his intent, and b) I’m not so sure he manages it on a consistent basis.

So as Rome burns around Dul Don Tramp’s ankles, he signs an order to have Twitter and other social media companies thrown to the wolves. What on earth will this achieve? The order is “expected to face legal challenges”. Yes, this is the best use of time and energy at the moment. Nothing going on here.

Signing such an order is like you or I posting advice that the best way to test our fitness to drive is to manoeuvre a 2.5 ton motor car around the public highway for a one hour round trip with our family aboard, and then getting upset if anyone dares to suggest that this may not be the safest way to do it. Then when the platform we declared that advice on suggests that the reader may wish to check the facts, we demand that they be shut down. Surely if we suggested such a thing, there would be some merit in the notion that we may not actually have acted “Responsibly, legally, or with integrity”?. Three very interesting words.

Anyway, how did Flump’s son mark the occasion and pay his respects to the 100,000 Americans who have lost their lives? He pronounced it a “GREAT DAY for the DOW”. Way to go Eric. I do hope the vast fortune you were gifted by your father, who was gifted it by his father, is working well for you. You’re an honourable fellow, just like yer old man, Turd Pondlam.

I hope you have a good day dear Woodentops, and don’t forget that it’s almost the weekend, so you can do the same as you've been doing all week!

Stay safe x

😂😂 have a good day x

I thought I would like to stay here but not any more

Morning Carl! Good to see you back in the driving seat (metaphorically) to get the business out of hibernation! Love the socially distanced tea and coffee station

Morning Carl, glad to hear that things are on the way back to being up and running at Woodfarm. I picked up a base last night for the first time ever. 3 very basic rifts later and I reckon I’ll be on stage at Wembley by the end of lockdown 😂 Seriously though it’s quite addictive isn’t it? Have a good weekend xx

Ha ha, thanks! We missed you yesterday. That quote doesn’t seem so punchy now! I have another one for you that Jacob and I heard during our camping… “Never let a clock tell you what you got time for” - know it? It’s only DC Fontaines, we loved it x (looks like you’ve upset someone! ⬆️). Have a great day xx

Morning! I'm trying to picture you as a punk 🤔😂 photos please 😜 Have a good day. X

Morning. My mum has dementia, and my sister and I use the term ”Whackamole" a lot, as in the arcade game where you hit one mole and another pops up ( usually referring to the fact that as soon as we think we solve one issue another pops it grubby little head up). How dare they steal our phrase!

Morning,, Oh so funny this morning , Thank you for putting a smile on my face to start the day with,, Take care 😘

Good morning! I think you covered everything there, but I’d better do some fact checking... Oh, and my son (who, pre-Covid, was searching for an apprenticeship while working part-time for 2 places in the hospitality industry: 1 at a wedding/conference hotel - unlikely to be up and running anytime soon - and had just begun at KFC too) began back at KFC yesterday! Only his 2nd shift ever, after all these weeks of waking in the afternoon and going to bed around 4am as gaming with all his mates! Quite a shock to his system and a bit nerve wracking for us all, not knowing if he is safe. Who knows what his future holds re employment now. Have a good day.

Another great rant - well said. I’m getting excited as going for a walk with the dog then we’re meeting up with a friend for a picnic - socially distancing of course. Macey has her own picnic packed with a sausage & a carrot so I think she’ll be excited too! Must go - my social life awaits!!🤣

Good morning! Enjoy the sunshine and don’t forget to wear your sunglasses 😎 to protect your eyes & so avoid any unnecessary journeys! 😂 My favourite’s - Turd Malpond!

Loving the Trumpagrams. He really does not have one single redeeming feature. Have a good day. 😊

Good moaning C. Scott... The sun is shining... It's gonna be a great day. Stay safe. xx

Morning Carl and I have now discovered something else that we have in common to add to a) being capable of unleashing bouts of verbal diarrhoea on a regular basis (😂😂) b) playing the guitar, c) a (slightly) wry and perverse sense of humour.... and now I see that we have identical Nespresso coffee machines ..... so there you have it...!! Oh and I like Turd Pondlam best (did your spell checker change it to Poundland too??!! 😂😂😂🤣🤣) only really for the first part 💩.....

Your rant makes me smile every day ....... thanks 😊😊😊

Morning Carl, great to have you back with the diary but.... can I ask a question about Andrew please? When ever you are live at the pub or quiz, when you start winding down you are cut off rather abruptly mid sentence. Does Andrew pull a plug or flick a switch leaving you 'frozen' on the screen & if so is it because he's getting bored by the end? Just wondering!

Morning Carl....keep the Lon Damp Turd anagrams coming...( My first attempt) Glad things are slowly starting to move business wise with face to face meetings Had another de stress bike ride before work yesterday then promptly started some alchemy just before I went in...lemons... vodka...mmmmm.i wonder 🤔 One more late shift to go..then 4 days off...woohoo 🍺🍺 Todays picture.....

Morning Carl, your rant keeps me going. Pleased you are keeping up with the eye tests, I had one yesterday, drove to Tesco, to get my click and collect order, not as far as Barnard castle, but I made it back home. Xx

Thank you for my daily giggle 😁

Will certainly keep reading. I am shielding so your diary entries keep me smiling. Also I emigrated from Norfolk to Cornwall 11 years ago and while I love it down here it is nice to be reminded of Bungay, Beccles et al xx

Hi 👋 Captain 👨‍✈️ thanks for including us in your day , diary 📔 is great 👍 and looking forward to some more useful terms for orange 🍊 thing , have a great day and here’s a question from one of me mates lol 😂🐻🐾

Morning Chief. Fab diary . Love the anagrams 😂😂😂 The quiz was brilliant. Loved the Logo round. Have a good day xx

Morning Carl, loved the anagrams this morning! Missed the quiz on Wednesday, was so engrossed in a jigsaw that I didn’t realise the time 😬 Usually wait for the regional news to finish but was so fed up with the Cummins and goings I didn’t watch it! Have a good day and enjoy the sunshine!

I’m actually quite glad that, at last, it’s virtually been confirmed: that there’s one rule for ‘Us’ and there’s another for ‘you’ (with a small ‘y’, lol). At least we’re all beginning to be able to understand where we are! 👎👎👎

It’s not just the president, the ordinary people refuse to give up their “constitutional rights”. Freedom is paramount

Yes "Freedom is paramount" but death is final.I love America but it saddens me to see where they are heading.

You do a great job of inspiring people daily. We are all human & having spoken to lots of friends this week, it seems many of us are suffering from 11 week 'lockdown despair'(myself included!!). Tomorrow is another day

Andy Deacon i think you can have a point for that !

QUESTION 4 - Which Brummie rock God did I meet and get an autograph from as he arrived at the Ipswich Gaumont sometime in the 70’s? He wasn’t chewing a bat at the time

QUESTION 3 - Which American TV star did I meet in a lift in Denver about 15 years ago. He was very cool. Possibly the coolest guy back in those happy days

We had our 11th birthday during lockdown. It was a quiet party. So to make up for the fact that we couldn't have a party with all our friends we're going to give away a free holiday! Follow the link above and answer the silly question and you (and your dogs) could be staying in one of our luxury holiday cottages, for FREE. So click the link and hopefully we'll see you soon, right here in beautiful rural Suffolk.

My son had his 11th birthday during lockdown and we got a puppy the day before lockdown so she has been keeping us both entertained in between working and home schooling. Would be great for us to get a break away together for a change of scenery and some new sights and smells for the pooch.

Liked shared and entered. 🤞🏼
