    I should imagine a nice bracing walk would clear your head if it all gets a bit too much

    A balmy -3C here in comparison to the temperatures you've got at the moment ... unless you're doing the accounts in Spain

    Our Association requires members to pay by DD. Those that do not are given 2 weeks to pay by cheque. If they fail to pay, they lose membership and have to pay an extra £5 to rejoin...

    Not in Spain but Highlands have relatively good weather at present - a few inches of snow, some sun breaking through, cold but not damp. Ideal winter conditions and yes I did have a nice walk to clear the head, thanks

    Ooh, harsh! Everyone pays but itís usually in dribs and drabs, AGM, first apiary meet etc. Hadnít thought of DD but I will now.

    As a habitual offender I have to say that DD often saves me the embarrassment of paying my fees in mid-July.

    More people skiing than walking in the village today.

    Yesterday - son saw snowmen built in the central reservation of a dual carriageway near Norwich as drivers were queued up for so long in the snow they got bored and had a play. That was before the wind came today.

    No wind today and some nice sunshine. Went for a stroll to look at a few of my hives at lunchtime and all very busy bringing in Crocus and Snowdrop pollen. Great to see after the last week of poor weather.

    it was a bright sunny day this Monday so the (10) colonies at the office car park were flying well and did what bees do after being inside for a few days. They have been at work temporarily due to fears of theft at the other apiary site. First thing I heard on Tuesday morning were complaints about the orange spots on everyone's cars! I have now prepared stands for them at a new safe location so they will be moved in the next few days.

    I know the owners of a furniture shop. I think itís a pretty good swap for one jar of honey. Handy for quick inspections on its own or mixed with hessian for when Iím spending longer with the bees.

    Yes, they are, Lindsay. My neighbour is a chicken farmer, and he used those rolls to make pens when 'tipping in' chicks - that's when new one-day old chicks arrived in the sheds. I got more off-cuts than I could use or even store. He is now becoming an egg farmer and changing the sheds to become free-range sheds for hens. I don't know whether he'll use those rolls of corrugated cardboard again.
