BEEcoming obsessed

I've collected a swarm, and have installed a warre beehive in the backyard. Now I can't stop listening at the back of the hive (ticka-ticka-ticka noise, like little clockwork gears), watching their comings and goings, and monitoring how much pollen is coming in. 

I've been accused of BEEcoming a hover mother.

(Sorry. The beekeeping world is filled with horrific puns.)

Take me out to the ...

Went to the Australian version of a baseball game. Much reference to the simpsons. You can have dinner delivered to your seat. The Sydney Blue Sox won.

Ben - 50 000 words or bust

Giving NaNoWriMo a go this year. Wish me luck.

Ben - RIP, sir.

Was just at the supermarket, and had Neil Armstrong's obituary was on the front page of every newspaper. Awesome. But not enough. We need to build a statue of that guy on friggin' Titan, ASAP.

Jen - Burns on the ice

At the start of July we learnt that Dante was accepted into Fort Street High School, the alma mater of his father (amongst others!) - all his hard work earlier in the year paid off.

We also developed an interest in ice skating with 4 of the 5 of us taking to the rink weekly, sometimes twice a week. Fun and bruise-inducing.
