    Just one word of warning...

    As we were throwing the roller door open for the night, I went to Bunnings and bought a couple of braziers and goodies for a couple of open fires for everyone to stay warm around... only problem... seems that Bunnings are selling an illegal product and the Fire Department hadn't bothered to tell them.

    Unfriendly

    I am usually a massive fan of Firies, Ambo's, Police etc.  It think they generally do a really thankless job for relatively little pay, but I have to say that this bunch were rude and obnoxious.  Unfortunately they deemed that our brazier (surrounded by 100 square meters of concrete) was way to dangerous and we were made to put them out.  Wouldn't want to be the Bunnings buyer in charge of that department tomorrow.

    Thankfully the lights were consistent with Bastille Day.

  • Hive Warming Invitation

    There was movement at the beehive
    for the word had passed around
    That the queen was throwing a party
    'though Wills and Harry weren't to be found.

    We're switching off the lights
    and lighting up the beeswax
    Stoking the wood fired oven
    cranking the heat up to the max

    Come see our new creations
    come meet our beautiful friends
    It's when you get to Queen B's hive
    that your stress and tension ends.

    So please reserve the date and join up
    there's lots of fun to be had
    Enjoy a warming cup of spiced honey mead
    a beer, hot apple cider or all if you're mad!
