Finding lost items
August 31, 2007 11:30pm CST
Those of you who have read earlier posts about my mischievious rosella birds will not be surprised to learn of their latest trick. I have been arguing with my partner because we have about a dozen pairs of tweezers and I can never find a pair when I need them. Today I found out why this is. I just caught sight of the little horrors throwing the tweezers down behind the radiator! I have squinted down using a torch and there is a veritable object graveyard there. Tweezers, lipsticks, tooth brushes. It is a good thing I noticed what they are doing or we would have had a lovely mess when the heating was turned on and melted the lipsticks. So that is another job for him when he comes home, thanks to the birdies!

Yup bad birdies indeed, and they don't get any better. Today they were trying to work out what the Little Lady bird finds so fascinating about the table she sits on. It is a genuine 1930's table, which was my grandmothers. It has horizontal bars about halfway up and the attraction is that she can sit there and watch everyone but nobody can see her. Unfortunately the big boys quickly fathomed it is made of wood so now I have to watch them like a hawk so that they do not take chunks out of it!

Yup, we got to love them but they do get on my nerves lol. Your ferret must have been crossed with a magpie to achieve a stash like that. My friend has ferrets and they drive him mad as they run up the chimney and then come back covered in soot and spread it around! Yesterday the birds ripped a magazine to shreds before I had read it!

Well, they have already started on the spoons, particularly the tea spoons. They have discovered that they can flick them at each other, I kid you not! They have driven me mad today so they will be in their cages tomorrow until reinforcements arrive in the afternoon and THEY can have a turn at watching the critters.
