A blog originally for keeping track of my hobby of being a Beekeeper which has evolved to include Home Brewing and even more recently to follow me and my families approach to "The Good Life". Eventually I hope to include baking recipes and stories of our flock of chickens also reporting on the success and failure at the allotments.

3 Year Hiatus and Counting

Hi all. Thought I would give a long overdue update on this blog. It has been over 3 years since I last posted anything and can't see me coming back to regular writing in the near future, although I would like to eventually. I have had a lot going on with work and my home life and the largest of these is the arrival of my newest addition to the family, my son! He arrived in March 2 years ago but the build up to his arrival was a stressful time with my wife developing sciatica! Thankfully both he and my wife where both fine and so we now have a boy and a girl so I think that is the family complete.

My Bees are still buzzing away although I now only have the top bar hive with Bees in at the moment. This is due to having to move site again and therefore haven't had a chance to increase my numbers. The lady who's land it is though is very keen on me increasing my numbers; I think she wants more honey! Who can blame her.

I have almost stopped with home brewing but this is more due to my son. He won't let me (or anyone) do anything without getting involved. A minor inconvenience would be a huge understatement when it comes to doing anything with him about. With Lauren I could get almost anything done and she would be fine staying out of my way. We didn't know how easy we had it  until he came along! We do love him dearly but sometimes he is just far to independent for a 2 year old. It's times when he goes and gets the eggs from the cupboard and then gets a pan out, takes it to the sink and then fills it with water, takes it to the cooker and tries to turn it on!! We watch him for a while but he gets soooooo angry when we stop him!

Anyway I think that will cove it for an update for now. I will aim to write more posts but can't promise. I have a better camera on my phone so there is potential for some good photos and videos when I do return on a more regular basis.

  1. Hope all is well with you, that the bees still thrive and you have found an opportunity to dabble in home-made wine making again.
