Tough old day in the Lammermuirs yesterday with Eilidh and Douglas, desperately trying to get the last of the bees home. Should’ve been home weeks ago but incredibly wet weather and now heavy snow has made it almost impossible! Managed to get home in time for the rugby though! Have a fantastic Sunday folks! Much love from Hoods Honey HQ!

Productive morning yesterday, using a quad to get the bees home from the hills owing to the very wet ground! Although many of us have woken up with Christmas dreams in tatters, stay strong, love those around you, drink wine, eat After Eights, listen to the Pogues and it will all get better soon! Anything ordered up until midnight tonight will still make it before the big guy comes and the shop is open today 10 until 4pm! Have a great Sunday folks, Honey hugs being sent from HQ!

A short clip of me feeding our wonderful bees getting them ready for winter! I’ll check but I think they can still drink Sugar Syrup after 6pm tomorrow…!! 🙄 Have a great day folks! ❤️
