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, the latest game is to see how much of my pot pourrai they can sling onto the floor before I notice and shout at them. It was a gift and is very good quality and in a lovely glazed china dish and they throw the stuff everywhere, sigh.

What a lovely radiator you have, lol! My kids feed small plastic things into the storage heaters and they have to be taken apart cos of the melting plastic fumes so I sort of know how you feel.

If your Lovlies ever taught my birdies all they know I would be in real trouble! The birdies think all these things up themselves, but with a little instruction from the boys, well, it doesn't bear thinking what they would get up to next, does it!

Yes, and your boys have learned so many tricks in the past few weeks I reckon we should hire the birdies out for wall paper stripping and the lads for demolition duty :-)

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!

Yup they go up the chimney, and just lately he has his mother living with him and her spaniel dog and the ferrets are driving everyone mad! They haven't got the dog to chase them up the chimney, but they are working on 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.
