I love my new word. Especially when everybody is downstairs: I only have to shout hoi! and I get a hoi back. Nice! I try to play with the word, like using Sophia's way of saying it: hoi-oiii! Or Hilke's short hoi. I haven even tried Jan's. Would you like to hear it?
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
