Happy Birthday Alex Occasion must call for lots of pie... Mmmmm pie

22 Jars of honey - very long day yesterday stood up crushing bee comb - tremendously sticky stuff honey! Sadly none of it will keep as the hive was vacated and thus the honey not properly dehydrated. Still good to eat, just won't keep as long.

Honey pie?

Hey folks ...

Thanks for the birthday wishes

Had the kids this morning whilst A went on her dreadmill. Was going to work then but was so tired after the week that I had a full 2.5 hour snooze. Just had coffee and lunch and now in my office. Planning on getting a few things done while no-one is bothering me. Had such high hopes of loads of time this weekend but it has largely come to nothing. Little plod later too I think, didn't have time yesterday.

Shame about the bees Boffin .... don't think they have migraed to Africa for the winter ... or Torquay ?

Lazy day here for me. I did the indoor triathlon yesterday so a bit tired today. I abandoned the idea of my long run and have been watching old films and sewing this afternoon.

Hope your birthday ends well and you have a good plod, weather is pretty grim at the moment though.

Tracey, coincidentally I've started to learn some Welsh. Inspired by watching the Snowdon marathon, I found I could understand some of what was being said, but wished I could have understood more. I've downloaded a free podcast for the moment, so am practicing my s'mea's and bore da's on the way to work!

Sue - am doing a pilot course at Swanse Uni which you would love. You have to do loads of drills, vocab and grammar online and only go to class for one lesson of three hours a week. The three hours are spent practising what you did online, so we spend most of it speaking. We are moving along at a cracking pace, assuming it runs next year I will be recommending it to everyone, it's really good.

Evening all

Sounds like you had a good day Tracey.  I would love to learn Welsh.  will look into it next year.

Sue - hope the tri went well. 

WA - hope you enjoyed the rest of your special day

Boffin - shame the honey won't last long.  Perhaps we could have a honey pie/cake fest?

I have got an interview soon and have to prepare a presentation so have been working on that.  The things we do for fun!!

Thanks for that Tracey, I saw that on a flyer we had at work, I can't commit to it this year, but def next year.

Interviews - , never been any good at them myself. We are interviewing next week for someone to do my old job (at last), I won't be a bogof nurse anymore then!

What's the interview for Nutty? Moviestar?

Wherevere my bees have gone Alex, I hope they are warm and cosy and not too hungry after leaving their food behind. Was a bad year for bees all round - too wet to allow good mating flights so consequently lots of hives failed to get a laying queen. Coupled to the bad management on my part for my hive and the bees have absconded late in the season and I doubt they would have had enough time to lay down stores for the winter - they should have ignored their evolutionary instinct and stayed put!

I shall clean it all up and put  a swarm in it next year.

Dw i'n hoffi dysgu gymraeg - although I am a baaaad boy and never go to class.... missed the start this year so am not signed up for this course. Truth be told I like the Welsh, just hate going out to evening classes and such.

Good idea that indoor triathlon - especially with the weather we have at the moment!

The light is at the end of the tunnel Seren; just be sure it is not the train

Boffin -  Its for the job I am currently doing at the University.  It will probably go to someone who is employed permanently but will give it a go.  The S4C coverage seemed to feature me alot I admit.  

Never work with animals or children they say......

Very tired. May just go to bed now.

Morning all

A lovely morning but cold again so wrap up warm!


06/11/2012 at 07:51

Nutty -  if there's someone permanent who can do the job, why are you doing it at the moment? Surely the very fact that you are there and doing the job perfectly well right now makes you a shoo-in.

Exhausted after yesterday. Got home from work at 5.20, did a quick snack for kids and back out to Welsh for 6pm. Finally got to eat my lunch at 7.30pm. Didn't bother with dinner, straight to bed as soon as Welsh ended at 9pm. Mondays kill me at the moment. The Welsh course is really good, but three hours on a Monday night? Mae e'n ofnadwy.

morning all.ice on the cars out there today.second morning of glossing for me.last coat though.i hate glossing....only good point is there are no carpets to worry about

06/11/2012 at 08:21


No harm in giving it a go Nutty - you are obviously suited to the job, so dim problem

Another ram in the brambles - they do seem to be going out of their way to find the tiniest bit of bramble to get wound up in!

Office politics.... one thing about temping is that you don't get involved.  Don't give a toss about what's going on

Tracey - Monday's sound hard for you.  Think long term how you will feel having accomplished another one of your goals. 

Boffin - who would be a farmer? 

Milder this evening. 

06/11/2012 at 22:20
Evening all.

Da iawn Tracey!

Good luck NR with interview.
06/11/2012 at 22:25

How is life with you RK?  Hope the job is going well.

07/11/2012 at 01:54
wide awake. this is becoming a bad habit......
07/11/2012 at 08:08


Your sleep patterns are a bit wonky again these days Nutty - could always bake pies if you are up anyway?


07/11/2012 at 08:25

Morning .... I really do need to sort my Welsh out.

Anyway, another day of grind here we come
