A Swarm In May

My life right now is so layered, so rich and so real that I cannot listen anymore to In Search Of Lost Time, for that would be far too much cream in my coffee.

At this very moment I am, or I was, revising for my preliminary beekeeping exam, a few moments ago I was weeping with Pearlie and in the next room Brendan Quinn, star of Irish country music, is holding a masterclass with Bert on clarinet and guitar. I've just put the hens in and said individual good nights to each and every one of them and then indulged myself in a bit of howling at the moon.

Our darling Matty is very sick (she told us she was sick) and my darling Katy is getting married in a few weeks.

And did I mention that those damn bees swarmed today. I missed it (no photographs) and Bert didn't catch them. It all happened within minutes.

Wish me luck with the beekeeping exam.

Howling at the moo - I might try that. I found out the other day that dingoes don't bark but they howl. They are a sort of wolf. I didn't know this but I still think a dingo would make a mighty fine travel companion in Oz. All the buzzing best for your exams! See you guys in 4 weeks!

I am Bee-reft that the revision is over. There were a few tricky questions in the exam but I am hopeful.
