At Mum's school there is a child called Bud who also likes Parrots. He has a parrot at home like Sydney - a Blue-fronted Amazon. Mum arranged for Dad to take me & Sydney in to see Bud and some of the teachers. We went to Calne on the bus as usual and on the way in we were accosted by a group of children who wanted to meet us. Dad was really pleased because the children were so well behaved. One of the helpers came across to see what was attracting all the attention and then Dad took us to meet Mum and Bud. Bud's parrot is just called Bird as they don't know if it is a little boy or a little girl (how embarrassing is that?) and Bird bites sometimes so Bud was a little nervous at first but he soon plucked up enough courage to hold me. He didn't hold Sydney because she was nibbling Dad's ear and Bud didn't want his ear nibbled. Afetr I had my photo taken with Bud and another with John, one of the Teachers, we had to go off to Swindon to collect a new sink (Dad told Mum to put it in her handbag then she would have everything including the kitchen sink in her bag! Mum wasn't impressed!! When we got to Swindon and made the collection we went out to Coate Water Reservoir where we saw the Ducks and Geese and near where we sat for Coffee and Ginger Biscuits (my favourites!!!) there was a family of Geese - the parents and 8 goslings.
On Wednesday it was Phoebe and Jaspers turn to go to Lacock. Dad told Mum it was to further their harness training but Dad knew they didn't need any more training really!!! Lacock was quite busy and all was well until Jasper decided to ask every single person, Horse and Sheep, "you alright?" Mum kept telling him to put a sock in it but he wouldn't and all the people thought it was so sweet! (Well I suppose it is quite sweet really!).
Thursday was a home day and a day for swapping the TVs and Friday, Dad & Stacey are going to try to get another outdoor cage for us Fids to get some real natural sunlight instead of our full spectrum bird lights! I hope they do because me and Sydney really enjoy the sun and it'll help those of us fids who aren't well enough behaved on a harness to go on the bus, see the sun.
Well that's all for this week. See you soon!
PS Dad & Stacey saw the cage but the mesh was too thin for us fids! When they got home they took Magic, Oscar & Tahla out for a walk. It is the first real outing for Tahla and she definitely needs a bit more harness training!!!
