A whole swag of medals at the Royal Easter Show

The judging results for the Royal Easter Show are in, and we're absolutely thrilled to have a haul of medals again this year.

I was particularly excited to enter in the competition this year with a block of wax.  Haven't really been able to do that before because the wax has to be from your own hive.  But now that I finally have my own hive, the bees and I went to work  (OK, so the bees really did most the work) and we put in a killer block of wax and won a ribbon for Champion Beeswax.  Get a load of that red, white and blue.  More is definitely better.  Bigger is also better.  We're going to be singing the Queen song at work on Tuesday.  May even download it and put it on repeat!  We are the champions my friends... we'll keep on fighting til the end... we are the champions... we are the champions... Join in people!

(O.K., yes I know, we don't really like the red and white ones as much as the blue ribbons... but then there's years of therapy in resolving that one and at my age, I've come to accept that I'm a perfectionist... and that's OK with me!)

Poured Candles

First place in Poured Candles


Dipped Candles

Second place in Dipped Candles



Got to be pretty happy with that haul.

May just sew them together and make a cover for the throne.  No, not that throne, the other one.

I'm as happy (and awarded) as my new friend the lama.  Although I don't see any Champion ribbons there Mr Lama (and my breath is better too).

Happy lama
