Moving House

Dont beg, it's undignified... Michael, parakeets dont mate with armadillos, thats the end of it! - Inside I'm Dancing (2004) (never heard of it but I like the quote!)

King Kong.. oops, sorry, M who lives opposite, has a large colony of parakeets living in a large willow tree right up against the new extension he's building. They've obviously sussed out that he's going to redevelop their home because they've been looking around the neighbourhood and have found just what they want at the end of my garden. They've spent the last few days looking it over, talking about it in very loud voices and now I think they've moved in. The cat obviously doesn't scare them (and I'm not surprised, seeing as they go round in gangs and I wouldn't care to make them cross) so they're busy moving their stuff from Willow Wonderland to Sycamore Shack.

I can see that peace and quiet on a sunny afternoon is now not an option.

Love the quote, Chris! Wherever did you find it? I can think of all sorts of situations where it would come in quite handy. Thanks!

And sorry about the parakeets in your garden. In the US, we only have parakeets in cages - they don't just fly around all over the place. I don't think they do, anyway.

Try this for size, Mary:

Like the new bloglook and colour. I feel for those birds - moving house is no joke - but also for you, and hope you get some peace soon.

Glad you like it, Welshcakes. Thought it was time for a bit of a change.
