What a poser!

I thought I'd introduce you to my beautiful pet cockatiels.  We've had a couple over the last 7 years.  I went out to take a photo of Sunny and Albi.  I put Albi on my finger, where she best responds, and took a photo.  

Then, I went to take a photo of Sunny and she actually POSED for the camera.  She went and hid behind the ladder to begin with, and then when I told her to come out, she moved a few inches towards me and stared me down and put her head up towards the camera.  We have had her for about 12 months and though at times she is a huge pest, we love her to bits and wouldn't have her any other way.  She squawks all the time.  If she happens to be out of the cage and I am eating, she will literally fly across the room to try and take food from my hand, whatever it is.  She loves eating our vegie scraps, particularly corn cobs and makes such a mess!!  She played tug-of-war with the snow peas this morning, lol!!

They are great company - although I have to keep Sunny entertained so that she stops pecking Albi's head feathers out!!

A new year, a new diary!

Okay, so I know it's not the best photo, but I wanted to get started on this blog.  It's proof that I DO indeed have a diary this year and I DO intend to use it. 

I used to be very good with dates, however, now I'm pretty hopeless with them, and co-ordinating dates and appointments is just about futile.  So, we BOTH have diaries this year, to keep track of appointments, birthdays and special dates.  Hopefully it will actually work..let's see!!

Let's see how I go!

It's funny when I think about the various blogs I've had in the past, and that I've tried to take a 'photo a day' before.  My lovely sister in law, Bec, has encouraged me to do this blog, because she's been doing it with others she knows, so I'll start on the 1st February, after I find out from her exactly what to do.  Watch this space x
