On Wednesday, I had to stay at home to give Ollie a chance. They took Ollie, Phoebe and Billie to Lacock. I didn’t mind staying at home with Sydney because I have been to Lacock loads of times and it was only fair to give Ollie a chance. Trouble is Ollie likes it on Dad’s shoulder but that’s where Phoebe sits and on this day, Phoebe pulled rank! Dad said Ollie was reeeeeally good and sat on his hand all the afternoon except coffee time when he went to Dad’s other shoulder. Afterwards they ended up at the Red Lion (no surprise there then!) as they had the car and weren’t dependant on a bus timetable! Apparently loads of people kept stopping them and taking photos and they were all so very good (even Dad – hehehe!)
On Thursday me & Sydney went out because we went to Calne and had to travel on the bus. We spent some time on the old Chippenham to Calne disused Railway Cycle Track to make sure me & Syd had our anti-oxidants in the form of Blackberries! We love Blackberries and I love flinging bits all across Dad’s shirt (hehehe!). As usual we were as reliable as ever on the bus which is why Dad takes us whenever he has to go on the buses! Mum found loads of Hawthorn Berries which she brought home for the other Fids.
On Saturday Mum & Dad took me and Sydney to Witney to collect a new cage for Suki. I think they were just taking the easy way out by taking me & Syd but we’re both ever so glad they did! We arrived in Witney and sat out by the Church and had a cup of coffee and biscuits! Then we went off to get the cage. The people selling it had an African Grey who was very placid sat out on top of her cage – in fact she ignored me & Syd completely! Mum & Dad bought the cage, put it in the car and we drove off towards the town centre. We were going to have a look round but Mum decided if we went straight home we would have time to thoroughly clean the cage and get it up in Stacey’s bedroom and swap the birds. So we went straight home! It transpired that the new cage was going to be used for Molly & Mango and their cage was to be used for Suki so they had a lot of cleaning and moving to do! However, by tea time, all cages were cleaned and sorted and all birds in the right cages!
