A New Millennium!

It's all over!!! The world survived the millennium bug, the coming month the environment will work hard to get rid of all the pollution caused by the fireworks and life will continue as before for most people.
As for me, I am proud to announce that I have survived last night gloriously. In our street, the bangs were so loud that you couldn't understand each other even when shouting. The family had switched on the TV as loud as possible so that I wouldn't be scared too much, but guess what?! I never blinked one eye!!! I sat quietly on my perch and let it all come over me. Jan was so proud of me that he announced he would kiss me in the morning.
Today is not only the start of a new millennium. It also happens to be a very special anniversary for all of us. Exactly one year ago, on 1 January 1999, I came to live with the family. Which means that I am one year and five weeks old today!

His New Life

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!

Aaaatcheeeee!!!

I have caught a terrible cold. All day long, I am sneezing and coughing. Haaaaa-CHEEEEEEE! Cough! Rattle! Don't you feel pity for me? Well, don't worry, I'll tell you a secret. I haven't really caught a cold, but it is just a sound I can't resist. This is Hilke's way of sneezing... and I just copied it! Do you hear me calling her name?

The Big Oh Three

This is a special moment. Earlier this year, Sophia has reached the Big Three Oh. Today, I have reached the Big Oh Three! I am growing up fast and will soon reach full maturity. Later this month, I will contemplate about my life so far but now I will go to sleep. Good night!
