It has been a long time since I recorded an accident, because I am not such a clumsy toddler anymore. Earlier this evening the family drank coffee together. Normally I am not invited, but I had been home alone for a long time so today they made an exception. You might guess what happened... Sophia's hot chocolate was on the table and so was her biscuit. I wanted to know more about the latter, flew on the table and hit the cup with the tip of my wing! Down went the cup and out went the hot chocolate, all over the table which was covered with Hilke's magazines and letters, the manual of Jan's new telescope and an expensive book of his. Hilke was furious, Jan was furious and even Sophia was furious for losing her hot chocolate (she can be a bit childish at times). The only person who couldn't care less was the culprit himself, because the family knows better than to work off their bad temper on me.
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!
