Suitcase half packed. Bus timetables adjusted. Lift arranged to airport. Tickets printed. Arranged for cats to be fed and polytunnel watered.

I shall be spending a couple of days with friends in Co.Galway and then heading for Gormanston to spend a week with about 300 other beekeepers. Imagine the talking!  I shall,of course, take part in the annual snoring competition in the dormitory (did I pack the earplugs?).

When I get back I hope to be able to entertain/inform you with a series based on my lecture notes, if decipherable. Jenny Berry is the Senior Lecturer this year, but there are plenty of others also.


About chrissladesbeeblog

I have been keeping bees since 1978 and currently have about a dozen hives. I am a member of the BBKA where for many years I represented Dorset at the Annual Delegates' Meeting. I am the co-author (with Dave MacFawn of of S. Carolina) of "Getting the Best from Your Bees" and am working on a book of my own poems : "Bee People".
