Smashed my head on the kitchen table 25-30 times to see if a brain cell would rattle around inside.
Took some piritise.
Just got back from the aborted inspection.
Totally absent minded ,no smoke,just lifted off roof, feeder and super in one go,
QE propolised to frames so jolted a few of them upwards with it.
All holy hell ensued.
Inner coward was already boarding the ferry
Idiot thought he could keep calm and carry on.
Feeling very self conscious.
Two frames in and it was like a hailstorm
Pitch and volume was satanic
Smoker had tipped over and gone out.
Decided to make a tactical retreat.
They'd worked out that, thanks to marigolds, my weak spot is now the shoulder blades so they stapled me there until I reassembled the boxes.
I even found time to top up the feeder...
The other hives had got wind of it so they were already very very swirly.
Was frog marched back to the car.
Drove home leaning slightly forward in the seat.
As my eldest grandson says' wtf were you thinking'.
I hope the queen wasn't involved in the carnage.
I just don't believe I could have been so stupid.
