So sorry I haven’t updated much this week. It’s been very busy.
Went back to work, which was tough. The knee sort of holding up, hurts more in the afternoon than the morning after I’ve been driving all day on it.
Had to come home from work, and then we were straight out to pick our new family friend up. A collegue of my hubby’s just got himself an African Grey and the poor ringneck he bought last year was being left in his cage, so he offered him to us.
I’ve never owned a bird before, so this experience is totally new for me. I was kinda scared of them in college, because they flew about. But, seeing them be social brought me around.
I am guessing these next few weeks will be more posts about Bobby… as well as my writing and my fish. lol…
Our 15th wedding anniversary. Paul and I got together in June 1996 nearly 17 years of ups and downs. Mostly ups though 🙂
I also had a session with E.J which went very well, the more sessions I have the more I learn about story telling in a prose setting. Where as I am used to doing it in a script writing sense. This is all new to me, as is learning about ‘modifers’ present or past participles. Etc etc…
Pauls’ 53rd birthday, he had to go to work but we managed to celebrate later on.
We managed to relax a bit. Clean the ponds, check on all the fish. I actually took a few scrapes and some from the sides of the ponds to see what other creatures we have living in them. It was a pretty interesting afternoon, researching what those critters were.
We won a new cage for Bobby off Ebay so we went to pick it up from Skipton. It’s a much bigger cage, and we’re still settling him in, so it might be a while before we actually get to put him in it.
All tiny steps. One day at a time. After all it took me months to get my koi to hand feed and to be comfortable with me almost stroking them and picking them up out of the water, so I can only imagine how long it will take for us to get Bobby used to being around us.
Hope this week is a little easier on us. 🙂
Catch you soon.
