And they said – sweetly and without malice – that it needed more beehive so that people who weren’t old would understand the title.

A good beehive is hard to find – but a shop in Kings Lynn does a mean attempt. Two were sent for, one blonde, one brunette. They lay on the stool in the kitchen like small, self sufficient kittens.

Snacks were provided – grapes and cherries – and music to fit the mood was on the iPlayer  – Mel Torme ‘Comin’Home’.
