Today was the first day of my bee keeping course. I headed off there this morning, full of trepidation at the thought of handling the bees. That was my greatest concern.
It was initially a bit scary handling them, but I got used to it and after half an hour or so of being right in the thick of it I didn't want to stop.
By the time I came to drive home my concerns had changed. My greatest concern now is how to fund my new interest. A new hive, safety equipment plus a colony of bees could cost well in excess of £500.
I'll be back again tomorrow and I'm thoroughly looking forward to it and hoping that we get the opportunity to be 'hands on' again!
