I was supposed to be making more hive stands this afternoon from off cuts of wood I have recently sorted. Trouble was that the weather went quite warm and sunny and I had to keep walking past some hives to get the wood out; and of course I had to stop and watch for a little while, well maybe a bit longer than that. I actually lost interest in building the stands and became fixated watching the bees at their hive entrances! Eventually I did rush and knock a couple of stands together. Good job no one else was home to see me skiving again.
